Stones' Noise Levels To Be Monitored

Subscribe to Rolling Stones alerts

THE Rolling Stones' concert at Boston's Fenway Park will be under heavy surveillance on Sunday night (21AUG05), with police officers monitoring the show for noise levels.

If the noise surpasses 70 decibels on the surrounding streets, PATRICIA MALONE, director of the Mayor's Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing, will be alerted, and she will tell concert host Clear Channel to turn it down.

The actions are all part of the city's efforts to minimise the impact of the Fenway concerts - now in their third year - on the neighbourhood.

Malone says, "It's something they've done for the past two concerts, and I've asked them to do it for this concert as well."

The Stones are kicking off their North American tour at the 93-year-old Fenway Park, which had never hosted a concert before Bruce Springsteen played there in the summer of 2003.

Jimmy Buffett played two shows at Fenway in September (04).
