rolling stones kurhaus scheveningen holland 1964 coverFlashback


August 8, 1964: Kurhaus, Scheveningen, Holland (first Stones’ concert ever in the Netherlands, and also their first on the European continent)
Bill Wyman, about the Kurhaus riot: “The same thing that happened in Blackpool happened in this beautiful old opera house in the Hague. They just ripped the place to pieces. We were on stage for 7 minutes. One number at full volume, and two with no electricity. All the power got switched off by the cops. We tried to carry on with maracas and tambourines but we just had to give up. The police made us leave and then the audience destroyed the place, pulled the tapestries off the walls, ripped the fitted chairs out and threw them into the chandeliers. It was really awful.”
