The Rolling Stones “Steel Wheels” five-month tour of the US in 1989 was a giant musical and financial success > with a giant, multi-storey stage to boot > this metallic monster of urban decay encasing a dazzling light show.
The band > who hadn’t toured for seven years > were back on top, to the tune of enthusiastic reviews and crowds.
The Rolling Stones played to over three million fans, with then record gross takings of about $US200 million. Ticket prices were only a tad over $US30. [Yeah, damn cheap those days were, aye!]
The Stones then embarked on a European tour, under the moniker Urban Jungle.
