Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones are taking over the big screen!
Posted: 13th September 2010
Fancy rocking out like it's still 1972? A time-tripping invite this is indeed as a digitally re-mastered version of The Rolling Stones' cult concert movie, 'Ladies and Gentlemen' is showing at selected Showcase cinemas across the country, this Thursday and Friday 16th/ 17th September, graced with a special introduction by Sir Jagger himself.
Shot during their 1972 North American tour, 'Ladies and Gentleman' shows at The Stones at their live peak, and with a line-up then comprising Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor on guitars, plus Bobby Keys (saxophones), Jim Price (horns) and Nicky Hopkins (piano), the set-list was chock-a-block with classic gems in 'Happy', 'Tumbling Dice', 'Sweet Virginia', 'All Down the Line', 'Rip This Joint' (all off their 'Exile on Main Street' album just released at the time and re-issued in May this year), plus more ,obvious tunes such as 'Brown Sugar', 'Gimme Shelter' , 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' and 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', among others.
So, if you were wondering how to possibly entertain yourself this coming weekend, see in this a done deal. The film is showing in VUE, Showcase and PictureHouse cimemas across the UK as well as a few local cinemas (see below for partial list).
If not, for whichever reason that might deprive you from the opportunity, watch out for the DVD and Blu-Ray releases, courtesy of Eagle Rock Entertainment, on 11 October 2010.
Get in- it's only Rock'n'Roll but you know you like it!
