Storyline

In 1989, the Rolling Stones go on their "Steel Wheels" tour: Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wood, and Wyman, backed by three singers, a sax, four horns, and two keyboards. In Turin, Berlin, and London, they perform on a gigantic stage in front of masses. The staging includes huge air-filled figures of women and of a wolf; there are fireworks and a light show. On stage, the musicians are sometimes yards apart, with Jagger racing up and down wide staircases that project like wings to the left and right of the stage. All the while, the music pours forth, sixteen songs in all, from "Satisfaction" and "Sympathy for the Devil" to "Start Me Up" and "Rock and a Hard Place." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Only The Amount Of Wrinkles Change For The Stones
8 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This veteran rock group is consistent: it almost always gives a dynamic show and it almost plays the same songs over and over. However, one doesn't seem to mind as the Stones always make their shows visually and audibly interesting no matter how many times you see and hear them.

The main difference in the shows over the years are the props (in this case, huge inflatable dolls) or a more youthful appearance when you see them in something 10, 20 and 30 years ago. When I acquired the "Four Flicks" DVD in 2003 I thought I had seen them do about all their songs but not so. For instance, in this concert is a great version of "Sad, Sad, Sad," which isn't on that multi-disc 2003 compilation.

After seeing the recent shows, you look at this and the "boys" look a heckuva lot younger.

These guys are always entertaining and I'm lucky to have found this tape in January of 2005. At the time, and still now the VHS and DVD were both unavailable for regular purchase. You have to find sellers on websites (Amazon, e-bay) to get them. I never saw this on IMAX so I can't comment about that experience.
