Does somebody know how much spectators the following concert had:

Magic Tour, Sun 3rd Aug 1986,
Estadio Rayo Vallecano, Madrid.

I read 45000 but that seem way too much.
Thank you for every info about this concert!

45,000 it was - do you want their names and addresses?

I was there.
Well ok I wasn't, I was only six months old and in Perth Australia. But I wish I had been there in hindsight.

Hola!

The Rayo Vallecano Stadium (now: Teresa Rivero Stadium) has 15,500 seats now. Twenty years ago, this stadium had the same capacity or even less, but I don't know for sure. You've to count with the general admission.

You can see a pic of that stadium here:

But you can always depend on me

Come on, the seats are only 15000, but have in mind that the grass was also full of people (which is much bigger than the seats).

A friend of mine was there, and said it was so f'ing full
Mustapha intro was sang, and doves were freed during the beginning of Love of my life

I live very close to that stadium - I mean.. I can get there in 15mins walking, what a pity I was born in April 1986 :(

Wembley stadium took 72,000 for football games in just the seats. It also took about the same for gigs, even with the pitch full of people - quite a lot of seats were lost at one end of the stadium due to staging.

Yeah it's roughly the same, at most you'd gain a couple thousands... so the figure's been inflated and loads of gullible people have swallowed the lie and made it fanon (fan canon). I wonder if that's ever happened in rock/pop music...


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
