Rolling Stones Attendance Record Broken
Even if you loathe and detest country music (like me), you have to respect the legends. Saturday night in Dallas, the venerable George Strait broke the North American attendance record for an indoor concert that the Rolling Stones had held for over 30 years.
Back in 1981, the Stones played to an audience of over 87,000 at the Superdome in New Orleans. No indoor concert had drawn that many people until 104,000 people packed into AT+T Stadium in Dallas for what was billed as George Strait's final concert.
Clearly, it's time for the Stones to set a new record. They frequently sell out stadiums all over the world and this is a record they could easily match or beat. Of course, the Stones also hold the Montana record for the largest concert crowd. Several years, over 25,000 saw them play in at Grizzly Stadium in Missoula.
