The Rolling Stones in Denver Colorado USA 2019

Denver Colorado USA is called the mile high city, because it is at exactly one mile high altitude, i.e. 1609 meters above sea level. By an amazing stroke of good luck, the 13th step on the west side of the Colorado State Capitol Building is exactly 5,280 feet above sea level – one mile high. Some say the air you breath in is thin in Denver, because of the altitude, but I don’t think the altitude is much of a problem for most people. The Rolling Stones have been performing several times in Mexico City, which is at a plateau of some 2,200 meters above sea level, i.e. a lot more than a mile, as compared to Denver, and also Bogotá Colombia is situated at an altitude of 2,640 meters (8,660 feet) above sea level, The Rolling Stones performed there with no problems in 2016.

Stonesland – My other family

When I left home for the No Filter US Tour 2019 early this summer, going on the road for almost three months, one of my very closest at home said “Enjoy your other family!” Those kind words have been with me on this tour, and they are always on my mind when I get homesick. After going to Stones shows all over the world for 46 years now, I have friends and Stones “family” all over the world. I get to meet them on tour. This is the story of my “other family”.

New Orleans has been the home to a Rolling Stones concert five times over the years, every time at the Superdome.
