A Rolling Stones fan, Glen Kersul, who will attend the concert, said, “It’ll make seeing a true classic rock band in a venue that’s more accessible and bring a classic rock band closer to home” and that “if you never caught the actual band, it’s a great chance to get out and experience a true rock and roll band.”
New Hyde Park resident Marcos Loyola commented, “I love how it gives the younger generation the opportunity to experience what music was like before the crap we have now.”
