Merchandise for the Rolling Stones tonight at Ohio Stadium is huge! Four large semi’s were jam packed with boxes of t-shirts, sweaters, hats, etc. A typical timeframe to prepare merchandise for an arena show is about three or four hours prior to doors opening. Last Thursday, workers spent more than 12 hours unloading, organizing, moving to various locations, etc. The next day was another 10 hour day. The amount of merchandise is staggering! An outdoor large stand opened on Friday and had steady business selling merch in advance! In addition to the typical Stones items, several items are Columbus specific, including this Rolling Stones Buckeye/Columbus light zippered sweater. Pretty awesome! May 20, 2015.
