Raleigh was very fortunate to get a place on The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour that takes the band to 15 cities in North America. People from other the US flew to NC to be a part of this epic concert on July 1 2015.  AFA Limousine Service had 13 reservations for the concert that took place at the Carter-Finley Stadium. The concert traffic was the worse we have ever experienced in 18 years of service!

With 40,000 tickets sold the traffic was expected to be very heavy.  N.C. State officials have been meeting with the Department of Transportation and State Highway Patrol to make plans since the Rolling Stones show was announced in March (to read full article follow the link).  NC State troopers were ready for the traffic link

In spite all the preparations the traffic was extremely heavy.  It took our chauffeurs 1.5 hours to get into the stadium parking lot to drop off the customers.  According to local reports, by the time Mick Jagger hit the stage at Carter-Finley at 9:35 p.m., there were still hundreds of ticket holders who had not made it to the stadium yet (to read full article follow the link).   Due to high traffic, limousines were not allowed to park in the VIP area and were directed to exit the stadium grounds.   It took even longer 1.5-2 hours for our chauffeur to pick up customers.

Despite all the hustle and stress of getting to and from the stadium, the Rolling Stone did not disappoint it’s fans The Rolling Stones – Let’s Spend the Night Together
