Today marks the release of 'Sweet Summer Sun,' the video of the Rolling Stones' concerts this past summer at Hyde Park. Ultimate Classic Rock and Diffuser.fm have teamed up with Eagle Rock Entertainment to give one lucky winner a copy of the Deluxe Edition. In addition, four runners-up will receive the DVD/two-CD combo pack.
The Rolling Stones will release a DVD and Blu-ray of their July 6 and July 13 concerts at London's Hyde Park. The set, 'The Rolling Stones Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live,' will come out on Nov. 11.
The year 1972 was big for the Rolling Stones. They launched one of their biggest tours and somehow managed to cut through a drug- and booze-fueled haze and release the double album 'Exile on Main St.,' one of their greatest and most defining works. But going into 1973, the band was lost, burned out and barely functioning as a unit. The wooziness was reflected on 'Goats Head Soup,' which was released on Aug. 31, 1973.
It took just one bid in a recent eBay auction to secure a barely used rock collectible, when a fan dropped $3,750 on a Rolling Stones pinball machine. The 2011 game, featuring the pared-down current four-piece edition of the band, includes a ramp styled after the Stones' famous tongue logo.
