When the Rolling Stones booked Regina for an October concert, I was wondering if there might be snow. But apparently Mick and the boys have an in with the weather office.
Friday concert: Balmy, sunny day, followed by a warm evening.
Saturday day off: Heavy rain all day, with strong, cold winds.
Sunday concert: Cool in the morning, warming with sun in the afternoon - no wind.
Regina is known for the Craven Country Jamboree in the summer, but we don't get a lot of A-List rock bands playing here. Even with extra seats added at Taylor Field, the Stones sold out so fast they added a second show.
It's good to see bands like the Stones play some non-traditional venues. And their decision to grant the beer concession to Saskatchewan-run Great West Breweries was a nice tip of the hat to a local company.ve5cma for allowing open use of their Flickr photos.
