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>

Good Concert with Nice Reworked Songs
21 February 2011 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Rolling Stones: At the Max (1991)

*** (out of 4)

Filmed during the European leg of the Stones' 1990 Steel Wheels tour, this production was shot for the IMAX screens so obviously seeing it there compared to your television is going to make a lot of different but I've always felt that no matter how you see it you need a strong performance, which you get here, although at the same time I'd say this concert isn't nearly the best that the group has released and certainly doesn't come close to what Martin Scorsese would pull off with SHINE A LIGHT.

Start Me Up/ Sad Sad Sad/ Tumbling Dice/ Ruby Tuesday/ Rock and a Hard Place/ Honky Tonk Women/ You Can't Always Get What You Want/ Happy/ Paint it Black/ 2000 Light Years from Home/ Sympathy for the Devil/ Street Fighting Man/ It's Only Rock 'n Roll/ Brown Sugar/ Satisfaction

Needless to say, there aren't any limits on the classics as the group comes out with a thunderous Start Me Up and it only gets better from here. The highlights include hearing some of this terrific tracks in a way that they hadn't been played on previous tours and this includes a terrific Ruby Tuesday and a more low-key but still rocking Tumbling Dice. I don't think Satisfaction has ever sounded bad and the terrific guitar opening from Richard on Paint it Black is certainly very memorable. For the most part the group is in top form but I'd still say this concert film falls well short of previous releases and a couple they did after this one. I think this is still a good show overall but if you want to show the Stones at their greatest then SHINE A LIGHT and LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE ROLLING STONES are your best bets and not to mention GIMME SHELTER.
