Sticks and Stones Smashing concert

It’s 50 years since fighting broke out at a Rolling Stones concert at the Hallenstadion in Zurich. Fans tried to storm the stage, smoke bombs exploded and chairs were smashed. The event was a taste of what was to come the following year, when student protests took place across Europe. (SRF Archive 1967/swissinfo.ch)
