The Rolling Stones in Atlanta: Twitter, Web Info


Another sign of aging is when you experience a Rolling Stones concert via Twitter.

So I plead guilty to not having as much fun as the people who turned out at Bobby Dodd Stadium on the Georgia Tech campus Tuesday (June 9, 2015) to catch the Rolling Stones concert, part of the Zip Code tour.

To make me feel even worse, the band members themselves were out there rockin’ away, despite ranging in age from 68 to 74. (I’m not that far along yet.). So when I reach the next life, it likely will be with never having experienced a Stones gig. Even these guys aren’t going to be at it forever.
