For most 70-year-old men, dancing about and creating a scene in Echo Park in the evening would be grounds for worry. Perhaps grandpa was being mugged, or maybe he choked on a turkey sandich on rye and EMS had to be called out. Then you have 70-year-old men like Mick Jagger who refuse to stop rocking out. Jagger and his Rolling Stones gave a concert in Echo Park last night, sounding no worse for wear considering their long storied career.
The gig was a surprise showing, something the band has been known to do in their 50-plus years of performing. The venue at Echoplex is a basement club, with a maximum occupancy of 650. The crowd was comprised of band friends and folks lucky enough to be in the area and were selected from a ticket lottery.
