Chaos as Rolling Stones play Belfast

On this day in 1964, RTÉ News broadcast a report on the Rolling Stones in Belfast. The band had played the Ulster Hall the previous night and the concert had to be cut short when the crowd got out of control.

Looks pretty chaotic as you can see from this RTÉ News report from 1 August 1964.
