This Day In Music, October 9th

On this day in 1981: During a North American tour, The Rolling Stones played the first of two nights at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The opening act was Prince, who dressed in his controversial bikini briefs and trench coat ran off stage after 15 minutes due to the crowd booing and throwing beer cans at him.

On this day in 1985: Marking what would have been John Lennon’s 45th birthday, Yoko Ono formally opened the three and a half acre garden at the Strawberry Fields site in New York’s Central Park. The area was planted with trees, shrubs and flowers gathered from around the world with a $1m donation from Yoko.
