  • Description

    MORE THAN A HUNDRED AND FIFTY FANS OF THE "ROLLING STONES" POP GROUP WERE FINED IN VIENNA TODAY (MONDAY) FOLLOWING DISTURBANCES AT A CONCERT GIVEN BY THE GROUP IN THE CITY'S WIENER STADTHALLE LAST NIGHT. THE POLICE HAD EXERCISED STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS, AND MANY YOUNGSTERS WERE TAKEN FROM THE HALL AS THE PERFORMANCE WENT ON.

    FOUR HUNDREDS POLICEMEN WERE ON DUTY AT THE POP GROUP'S TWO CONCERTS IN VIENNA, AND THEY WERE KEPT BUSY BY THE OVER-ENTHUSIASM OF THE YOUNG FANS. MANY WERE SCREAMING AND CRYING, AND TROUBLE-MAKERS WERE REMOVED IN THE STRUGGLE TO KEEP THINGS UNDER CONTROL.

    A POLICE SPOKESMAN SAID THAT ALL THE INCIDENTS WERE THE RESULT OF ENTHUSIASM FOR THE GROUP, AND HIGH SPIRITS. A SPOKESMAN FOR THE CONCERT HALL SAID: "APPARENTLY THE FANS NEEDED TO LET OFF STEAM.

    (STILL MORE VIOLENCE OCCURRED WHEN THE GROUP MOVED ON TODAY TO OEREBRO, IN SWEDEN. FIVE TEENAGE GIRLS AND A POLICEMAN WERE INJURED IN A 30-MINUTE DISTURBANCE WHEN MEMBERS OF THE AUDIENCE THERE TRIED TO GET ON TO THE STAGE. ABOUT 2,000 FANS THREW BOTTLES, STONES, CHAIRS AND FIREWORKS, AND DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT 10,000 CROWDS (ABOUT GBT690) WAS CAUSED.)
