The Rolling Stones are performing the third show in Argentina during the 2016 tour. We are preparing the evening with a meal at Cafe La Barra on Cordoba 484. A large Banana Split will take care of the energy level for a while. Then our favorite taxi driver is waiting at 4pm outside our hotel. I managed to read 10 minutes in the user guide of my camera, for the first time, and will try a manual setting, hoping the B-stage photos will work this time. We are at La Plata at 5:30 and inside the venue within half an hour. Staying close up at the B-stage is hard work but we stay there from “Happy” and until the end of the show. “Miss You” with Mick, Ronnie and Keith close up was one highlight, another was Mick and Sasha during “Gimme Shelter”.
Show number two of three in Argentina. I have been in Buenos Aires since Friday Feb. 5, 2016. It is now Wednesday, and it has been six great days in the city of The Rolling Stones. Some more fans arrive from far away like Europe, Asia, North America and South America. Most of the fans are local, arriving from Buenos Aires or other cities in Argentina. Another sold out show. This time we have booked a taxi from Buenos Aires to La Plata. This is the story of our show and the travel to one of the best ever Rolling Stones shows in Buenos Aires.
We are waiting for a bus to take us to La Plata. It is leaving at 5:30pm on show day, Sunday February 7, 2016, a bit late, but I am optimistic. It is an hour or so driving south of Buenos Aires, and I hope the bus will have it’s own track, so that we do not have any traffic jam or delays. The weather has been great since I arrived into Buenos Aires on Friday, but now, suddely, it has started to rain. While it was +30 decrees C during the past two days, it is still warm. I left my rain ponch at my hotel. Well life is great, and I am an optimist!
