Like A Rolling Stone
Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows about my obsession (er, fan girl status) with the Rolling Stones.

Last week, I got to see them perform (along with almost 100,000 other fans) in concert at Desert Trip, a 3-day legendary lineup of the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Who, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. 



The setting was the 330-acre Empire polo grounds in Indio, California, where the Coachella music festival happens every year.

The stage was the biggest one I have ever seen, and the video screen in the background was more than 200-feet wide (my estimate) to allow for all the fans to see the musicians.

The setup featured a ‘pit’ where people could stand, seats on the ground, and bleacher seats. (I was in the bleachers, but the video screen helped A LOT.)

The show was amazing, especially listening to the guy who wrote ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ play before the actual Rolling Stones (even though the song has nothing to do with the band).  http://nyti.ms/2dVVpzJ  

The temperature was a blistering 97 degrees in the desert, but it cooled off a little when the sun went down around 6:15pm. However, dancing around for almost three hours put everyone right back in the 100+ range, but it was worth it.

Tonight, Bob Dylan and the Stones play again. Tomorrow, Neil Young and Paul McCartney. On Sunday, The Who followed by Roger Waters. The average age of the performers is 72. This was probably a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I’m glad I’m made the trek out West to be part of history!
