Gimme Shelter in Nimbin

GIMME Shelter is a doco about The Rolling Stones' 1967 tour which culminated with the gig that marked the end of the Summer of Love.

Sam Cutler, who will be at the screening for a Q&A, was The Rolling Stones' manager for this tour.

Relive the days of chaos and glory.

Gimme Shelter is a flashback to a time of cultural upheaval.

America was changing.

The war in Vietnam had created disenchantment and the new hipster generation were busy bucking the system, experimenting with LSD and reinventing cultural paradigms.

This was when a mega band like The Rolling Stones were a cultural force, second only to The Beatles in world fame and popularity.

The Rolling Stones, inspired by their recent free concert in London's Hyde Park that Cutler organised, were keen to offer the American people a similar free experience.

What happened next was the Altamont Festival.

There are still mysteries and myths around what happened at that event, and Cutler will answer the audiences' questions about it.
