Sorry, but I was at home watching the baseball playoffs!

The Stones draw 80,000 in Regina
REGINA (CP) – It was all about Mick and the boys Friday in the Queen City.
Some 80,000 people were set to attend Rolling Stones shows on Friday and Sunday in what officials were calling the city’s biggest-ever concerts. Among the thousands who mingled at the site more than three hours before showtime was Brock Montgomery, 25, who drove in from Moose Jaw to see “the greatest rock and roll band of all times – hands down.”
“I’ve been listening to them for a long time,” he said.
“The old man, he brought us into them,” Montgomery said, referring to his father, who was also at the show.
“It’ll be awesome, probably the best thing that ever happens to me.”
Some ticket holders could be heard on cellphones, calling friends to say that they were at the show. One group of four, clearly expecting satisfaction from the show, was singing the Stones hit, albeit somewhat off key.
Others hadn’t actually scored tickets to the concert but hung around outside Mosaic Stadium in the hope something would materialize.
One woman, who would only identify herself as Joan, waited in front of the ticket office wearing a placard that said: “Wanted: Stones tickets.”
“I’ve never done this before,” Joan said. “(But) we thought what the heck, if we can get tickets we’ll go – concert of a lifetime.”
Officials at Tourism Regina agreed, saying the show was the biggest the city and possibly the province had ever seen.
“There is nobody in Saskatchewan who doesn’t know somebody that’s going to be at the concert,” said Steve McLellan, the agency’s executive director.
“In Regina, and indeed throughout Saskatchewan, it’s a big deal . . . it’s the biggest deal going in our city literally for years.”
McLellan said the shows are expected to bring in between $10 million and $15 million in direct tourism spending.
“(It’s) the most amount of tickets ever sold in Regina, the biggest band that’s ever been here, we think the biggest production that’s ever been into the city,” he said.
Crews worked for several days to turn Mosaic Stadium – the home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team – into the massive stage dubbed by the Stones production crew as “the Big Grey Whale.”
“It looks just like this big grey collage of artwork and then when the lights go down, and we turn on our effects, it just lights up,” production manager Dale Skjerseth said of the steel structure rising above the field.
The stage rises 27 metres off the ground, is nearly 62 metres wide and more than 30 metres deep, said Skjerseth. It weighs 272 tonnes and also includes a video LED wall that is nearly 15 by 15 metres.
Skjerseth, who has 27 years of touring experience, said the show is “bigger than anything out there on the road right now.”
Even the weather co-operated on Friday.
Whereas Stones fans in Halifax endured frigid temperatures and driving rain at a show there last month, it was a balmy 20 C in Regina by mid-afternoon Friday.
