I attended the show in 1975 at the Gator Bowl. It cost USD $10. for a full day. The show included Chaka Khan, Atlanta Rhythm Section, J. Geils Band, and Billy Preston, who stayed on and played keyboards with the Stones.

I was also there, it was very hot and people were passing out all over. The Stones useed a fire hose during their set to cool things off. What a mistake to have it during the day.

I attended the show at the Gator Bowl in '75- the summer between high school and college.

The acts were (in order):

Atlanta Rhythm Section

J Geils Band (lead singer Peter Wolf's broken arm was in a cast)

Rufus w/ Chaka Khan

The Rolling Stones (Jagger sprayed us in the audience with a hose- it was hot, brutally hot!)
