June 18, 1965: Caird Hall, Dundee, Scotland (2 shows)

June 18, 1972: During their stay in Chicago for the shows there, the Stones spend about 3-4 days at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion. Keith and Bobby Keys nearly set it ablaze while doing drugs in a bathroom. “Bobby says, ‘It’s smoky in here’ ” Richards recalled in his book ‘Life’. “And then a little later there’s a thumping at the door, waiters and guys in black suits bringing buckets of water. They get the door open, and we’re sitting on the floor, our eyeballs very pinned.” The house was saved, but, as Richards notes, Hefner would relocate the Playboy Mansion to Los Angeles.
