The Rolling Stones/B.B. King: Oakland Coliseum, California

Tom Donahue, Cash Box, 22 November 1969

THE ROLLING STONES are in action in the United States for a tour that currently includes 14 major cities in most of which they will be doing at least two shows. The tour started at The Forum in Los Angeles on November 8 after the Stones had been in town for a couple of weeks of rehearsals and hanging out. The 18,000 seat house was sold out for both shows at a top ticket price of $12.50, though the advertised top was $7.50 with the first twenty rows of $12.50 tickets being reserved for the "In" crowd.
