June 21, 1976: Sportska Dvorana, Zagreb, Yugoslavia
The Rolling Stones’ Tour of Europe ’76 was a concert tour of Europe that took place in Spring 1976.Tickets were in high demand; on 1 April the promoters announced that they had received more than one million applications in the mail for tickets for three shows at London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre; subsequently three more dates were added there. The routing also saw two dates in Yugoslavia – the Stones’ second visit to a Communist country after 1967.
The tour began a few days after the 23 April release of the group’s album Black and Blue, and is documented by the 1977 concert release Love You Live. Much of the material on that album is from the shows at Les Abattoirs in Paris from 4 to 7 June. Keith Richards’ 10-week-old son died of sudden infant death syndrome on 6 June, but Richards elected to keep the news secret and to play the shows as scheduled.
The Rolling Stones also appeared at Knebworth Fair in August 1976, where they added “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Around and Around”, “Little Red Rooster”, “Stray Cat Blues”, “Let’s Spend the Night Together”, “Dead Flowers”, “Route 66”, a fragment of “Country Honk,” “Wild Horses,” and “Rip This Joint” to the above set list.
The Rolling Stones also appeared at two club dates in 1977 at El Mocambo, Toronto, Canada. Like the Knebworth show these were not part of the 1976 tour.
