Knebworth Fair 1976 - The Rolling Stones
Knebworth Fair 1976 - The Rolling Stones
The 3rd one day festival held in the grounds of Knebworth House was headlined by The Rolling Stones. A far more professional stage than the year before, see Link. It was in the shape of a giant tongue (modelled on the Stones logo which allowed Jagger to parade himself nicely). Inflation was taking hold with ticket prices rising to 4.25 for the whole day from 2.75 a year earlier. At this point in my early years as a music fan I had seen The Rolling Stones twice for a total of 4.25 having also seen the free concert in Hyde Park in 1969 - starts to make Glastonbury 2013 look mighty expensive at 205.
