The Rolling Stones ‘Some Girls’ Tour Film Headed for Movie Screens
Some guys named the Rolling Stones will revisit their late 70′s ‘Some Girls’ period with an upcoming concert film release chronicling a 1978 Stones concert in Ft. Worth, Texas.
Due for release on Blu-ray and DVD Nov. 21, ‘Some Girls Live In Texas’ will first spend time on big screens across America on Tuesday, Oct. 18 with a special nationwide theatrical event featuring a new interview with Mick Jagger, who spent time in August reflecting on the ‘Some Girls’ era for the release.
Jagger remembers, “Fort Worth was an amazing night in a blistering hot July. Watching it now, the band was really intense and focused, but we were also having a blast with the fans who were really getting into the show and the new tracks from ‘Some Girls.’”
The release is a unique new addition to the Stones catalog, having never been broadcast on any television medium or released for purchase. The 85 minute concert collects 17 performances from the Stones, including legendary hits like ‘Brown Sugar’ and ‘Tumbling Dice,’ paired with Chuck Berry covers and ‘Some Girls’ tracks like ‘Miss You’ and ‘Beast Of Burden,’ which quickly became fan favorites.
‘Some Girls’ was a creatively rich moment in time for the Stones, who recorded close to 50 new songs during sessions for the album, and the touring behind the album was similarly inspired. The new concert film pairs nicely with last year’s essential ‘Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones’ release, a classic performance that documented the band’s fabled ‘Exile On Main Street’ tour.
