Well, not directly related, but a gent dropping off some porch furniture that my wife got powered coated painted said "Well, don't tell the company, but I'm going to take some time to go on tour with the Rolling Stones as a stage hand". He wasn't BS'ing.
I'm guessing he works for one of the stage or sound companies in Lititz, PA. It's a little town in Pennsylvania Dutch Country (an 1 1/2 hours west of Philly) that houses Tait Towers (stage company), Clair (sound company), and Atomic Design (music and stage backdrops). They're all the real deal working across The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, U2, etc. I never knew the all existed until a year or two ago.
The trailer looks cool! I wonder if the Ole', Ole', Ole' staging is Tait Towers. They say they've been doing the Stones for 19 years.

it could be. if you watch the movie, you'll see that they left nothing to chance in setting up the final tour show in cuba. every bit of equipment from shipped in from the States
there's an interesting bit where they interview a woman who repairs guitars and she talks about the scarcity of everything in Cuba to the point that they refurbish strings and people even make their own strings.
Ok, get ready to throw bricks at me. I’m pretty well over The Stones - I love Keef and put him on the very short list of most influential guitarists.
But the Stones live just don’t do it for me. They’re one of the few bands that can’t seem to play live at less than 180 bpm - regardless of the song. Which is amazing because Charlie is a human metronome.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
