The Singles Tour - Tour Blog

Riga, Latvia (Lielupe Tennis Hall)
author: Jody Hardy
date posted: September 3rd, 1998

When we arrived in Latvia (on Tuesday), they were over 100 fans waiting for us at the airport. They screamed when David, Martin and Fletch walked off of the plane. They even screamed (in anticipation) when Jonathon Kessler (DM's Manager) ducked his head out before the band walked out!

I found out later that a week ago, when The Rolling Stones arrived in Latvia, they only had two journalists waiting for them, and that was it. No fans - no nothing.

The band did a "Meet & Greet" before the show, and were presented with a Gold Record award, because they have sold more records than any other artist in Latvia.

It had been raining non-stop in Latvia. The only two days of sunshine that they have had started the day we arrived.
