From the site:
A 15-minute flurry of fireworks last night was to wind up the world’s largest concert in an outdoor structure. But what the 82,000 fans at Municipal Stadium wanted was on the 8O-foot long stage at the Stadium — Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. At 7:13 p.m. small fireworks went off in the audience. Fans waved a “Get stoned” flag. The band played Aaron Copland’s, “Fanfare for the Common Man” a Mick Jagger jumped up on the stage.

He danced, bowed, whirled and did a Chuck Berry scissors kick up and down the stage and gave little exuberant whoops. He was much more jolly and less sophisticated than in his 1972 tour.

The old punk, raunchy image of the Stones has faded a bit, but the basic raw power remains. This time their costumes were done by designers Giorgio di Sant’ Angelo. The Stones rolled out with their 1969 hit. “Honky, Tonk Women.”. They followed it with the powerful, “See Down the Line.” “Hiya Cleveland!” yelled Mick. “We’ll do a song, ‘If You Can’t Rock Me, Someone Will.'”

The Stones sounded better than ever. For the first time Belkin Productions had a cluster of speakers in the middle of the field. The Stones had brought 22 tons of sound and lighting equipment with a half-million watts of power.

“Gimme Shelter” was more melodic than ever. Ron Wood, guitarist with the Faces, played along with Stones’ guitarist, Keith Richard. Laying down a strong piano line was Billy Preston. Ollie E. Brown, who had played percussion with Stevie Wonder on the 1972 tour, was also on stage.
