Legendary Rolling Stones Concert Film From 1972 Tour To Be Screened in Theaters In September

Spinner.com is reporting that a legendary 1970s Rolling Stones concert film has been remastered and will be screened worldwide in September.

'Ladies and Gentlemen ... The Rolling Stones,' was filmed on the band's 1972 'Exile on Main Street' tour, and will appear at more than 800 cinemas this autumn.

It will subsequently be released on DVD and Blu-ray in November, just in time to make its way onto every self-respecting Stones fan's Christmas lists.

The footage was captured on 16mm film over four nights at concerts in Fort Worth and Houston, Texas. 'Ladies and Gentlemen ... The Rolling Stones' was originally released in 1974.

In that original run it was released in "Quadrasound," a special surround system to create added intimacy. This presentation of the film required its own sound system, which was transported between venues on a flat-bed truck. Due to the desire to recreate the 'feel' of a rock concert, it also needed sound engineers to mix the sound to venue and audience requirements.

It has been remastered for the modern audience, with the addition to the film of an interview with frontman Sir Mick Jagger filmed in London, at the Dorchester Hotel.

The film features a set list of 15 songs, including: 'Brown Sugar,' 'Street Fighting Man,' 'Tumbling Dice,' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' and 'Jumpin' Jack Flash'.
Sir Mick said (via NME), "It's a full-on performance and energy levels are really high... everyone's very together."

In the UK, 'Ladies and Gentlemen...The Rolling Stones' will be screened between Sept. 16 and 29 at Vue, Picturehouse, and Showcase cinemas. It is also being shown across the US and Europe, with full details at Cinerock.
