When I attended the Rolling Stones concert, there was tumultuous applause even at the beginning of the show that drowned out the strains of the first song. The tumultuous music itself mirrored the wild and noisy rock and roll genre that drove fans crazy with excitement. Once the concert ended, the crowd broke into such a tumultuous and hugely happy uproar that Mick Jagger and company came back onstage for three encores.
