BUCHAREST, Romania, July 19 (UPI) -- The 60,000 rock fans filling the National Stadium in Bucharest, Romania, for a Rolling Stones concert knew it was only rock 'n' roll and they liked it.

However, the crowd didn't like the lack of beverages at the venue, reported Thursday. The concert's organizers apologized for the lack of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, blaming distribution firms it contracted for the event.

Organizers reported about 150 people received medical assistance, mainly for dehydration.

After the crowd at "Lia Manoliu" warmed up to iconic Romanian band Isis and the Charlatans, the Stones juiced the audience at Tuesday's concert with the band's signature opener, "Start Me Up."

"The Stones shown why they are an industry larger by a mile than many businesses in Romania: pure show, crystal sound and four rockers who seem to only get better as time goes by, like a bottle of fine wine," a editor wrote in a review.
