Mick Jagger said of this film in statement publicizing the movie: "We wanted to have a show for the stadiums. We tried to make it pretty simple, but we had a special set for this one. It was quite elaborate for an outdoor show. We hadn't toured for three years, it was sort of [an] occasion. This became the biggest tour we'd ever done. While I think The Rolling Stones are really a rock band, and not a big theatre band, you should see 'something'. Something dramatic should happen, something different should happen so that you're taken out of that world into another one. That's what I think when I look at bands. It's good for the audience, good for the bands as well. To feel that we're out there in front of a decent set, not looking like a bicycle shed. It should look pleasing to the eye. After we saw the sun set in Los Angeles when we were on stage at the Coliseum, we thought it 'had' to be a movie. We decided not to go for a story line, but just try to do some classy shooting. We really wanted to capture the spirit of the tour. We definitely wanted to avoid the cinema vérité, backstage sort of film. That had been done and what people wanted to see was out front. There's a tiny bit of backstage, but the real minimum. I think the film gives a feel of what it's like to be there. It's a great sounding movie" - Mick Jagger.
