The Rolling Stones: Ronnie Wood, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Charlie Watts

Tonight Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood – The Rolling Stones – bring their 14 On Fire tour to Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium, for what is the last show in a run that began back in February. It’s the rock ’n’ roll stalwarts' first New Zealand appearance since 2006’s Bigger Bang tour, and promises even bigger production values than that stadium-filling extravaganza.

Production manager Dale Skjerseth is the organisational brain behind 14 On Fire, and yesterday he offered local media an insight into the logistics of his well-oiled, military-sized operation.
