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>

Live Stones....
8 July 2012 | by tim-764-291856See all my reviews

Those that've seen 'em, say they're the best live band in the world. Legendary in fact, with Jagger at whatever age he is now, bounding about a 20 year old.

The Rolling Stones aren't my favourite band - dare I say it, their sheer rawness doesn't seem to translate down to CD all that well, at least for me (and they were before my musical 'time'). Maybe Live, where all that noise and energy can be focused, I'll appreciate them a lot more. So, my quest to own one decent Stones Live DVD led me here, not too old for technical (viewing) technology to be an issue and not be too new to be costly or without reviews and recommendations from other online customers.

It certainly sounds very good and with good visuals. It seems to have most of the great tracks, done Live and with Jagger playing up to both the audience and music itself in his customary manner.

What more could I want? Not a lot really, which is why it's a definite 8/10 - if I was really into the band, then that could be even higher - but either way, comes recommended!
