Fanatism Lead To Violence

On March 30, 1998 in Argentina, while opening for the Rolling Stones, the crowd demanded to see the Stones during Meredith Brooks set and became violent, throwing bottles and other objects at the stage, hitting her several times. Brooks abandoned her set after 2 songs as the crowd yelled "Come on Stones!"

The following day Brooks showed reporters bruises to her eye and ankle and stated: "They have taken away my greatest moment. I was playing with the Stones, something I never imagined I would do... and now I think I'll cancel the rest of my shows in Latin America. I have no intention of continuing to expose myself to this kind of barbaric behavior... not me, not my band, not my crew."
