The Rolling Stones: Stones' Last Tour (Before The Next Five)

Jeff Apter, nyrock.com, September 1997

LOOKS LIKE the Rolling Stones plan to keep on rolling well into the next millennium. On August 18, 1997, they launched their most recent album/tour package, Bridges to Babylon, with a full production number under New York City's Brooklyn Bridge. Traffic disappeared and a chopper hovered overhead as the four oldest teenagers in the world cruised in from Manhattan in a cherry-red 1955 Caddy convertible, a police escort leading the way.
