    On 17th July, 1972 the Stones played Montreal where their equipment was ruined due to an explosion. (Those were the hey-days of Vive Le Quebec Libre. 🇨🇦 )

    From the book STP:

    The bomb at the Forum was just the first of four timed to go off at intervals during the day. They wake Jagger up to tell him about it. “Who did it?” he asks sleepily. No one knows. “Well,” he yawns, “why the fuck didn’t they leave a note?”

    But he’s shook. The French separatists, it is well known, are cray-zee. They’ll stop at nothing, and all day long he keeps referring to the event uneasily, worried that they plan to pull something off at the show. But the show itself goes off peacefully, the bomb squad having turned the building upside down more than once.
