Rolling Stones Live On Blu-ray

Rolling Stones Hyde Park

Now in their 70’s and apparently ageless, Mick and the Boys have never been better, a triumphant return from an ignoble retirement just a few years ago. This moment is magic, just one of many that captures the bands power in the fantastic new Blu-ray concert filmed last July in London.  Playing in front of over 100K raucus fans, the band runs through a set list of their hits, each one better than the last, reaching a crescendo when a women’s choir opens You Cant Always Get What You Want late in the show. Wow. I got what I needed, a big smile on my face, you will too.

I’ve always been a Stones fan, to me they were the subversives, their music was a call to arms for my generation.  I saw them half a dozen times in their prime, rolling stones 3but as we all matured, they lost that spirit and became more “show business” icons, playing shows that were good but lacking rawness and power. When Martin Scorcese filmed them playing their last show in “Shine A Light”, it was melancholy for me, seeing them playing in front of a small handpicked audience of beautiful people, the contrast in age jarring. It was no way for them to retire.

rolling stones hyde park 2Blu-ray lured one big band after another (U2, Police, Madonna) back on the road with huge new productions using the latest digital technology to achieve the scale 100K fans deserve. They did it so we can watch and listen to them at home on our own HD systems, re-capturing our best memories of them since their early years.  

Now in their 70’s, they prove that rock and roll is timeless and ageless, their pleasure easy to see as they once again showed the world why they must still be considered the greatest rock and roll band of all time. This is the best of all the Stones concerts ever recorded.CIMG2148

I was not expecting anything this good. Get it. You’ll get a lot of satisfaction. Look at Charlie, he’s smiling.  On my 111″ diagonal 1080p projector at home, I was smiling too.
