A big day if you are the fan of the Rolling Stones. The Stones have announced a new stadium tour for 2019, but looking back on December 6th in their history shows some pivotal moments:
50 years ago today, on December 6th, 1968, the Rolling Stones introduced their excellent album “Beggars Banquet”.
A year later to the day, on December 6th, 1969, the famous Altamont concert took place where the Hells Angels served as security and infamously killed fan Meredith Hunter during the show.
And exactly one year after that concert, on December 6th, 1970, the documentary “Gimme Shelter” featuring the Rolling Stones and detailing the events of the Altamont concert was released.
