Presented by NCM Fathom, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Omniverse Vision, this one-night-only event will feature the Stones in a career defining concert, testing the very limits of their own musical power. The footage was captured at four shows in Fort Worth and Houston, Texas on their 1972 North American tour promoting the “Exile on Main Street” album. The music played on that spectacular tour included what would later be known as some of the band’s greatest all-time hits such as “Tumbling Dice,” “Brown Sugar,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”
“It’s a full on performance and energy levels are really high…everyone’s very together and on,” said Jagger.
Richards agreed with Jagger and recalled, “I knew that ‘Tumbling Dice’ was a killer live.”
“Ladies & Gentlemen … The Rolling Stones” was originally filmed in 1972 in 16mm by Bob Freeze and Steve Gebhardt of John Lennon’s Butterfly Films and has been restored and re-mastered from vintage footage. Movie theater audiences will get a one-time opportunity to flashback and be next to the stage during these historic concerts.
“The summer of 1972 and being on tour with the Rolling Stones is a rare opportunity for the legions of Stones fans and their families to experience history,” said Dan Diamond, vice president of NCM Fathom. “This concert footage has been preserved for 38 years and we are delighted that the Stones want to share it with millions of music fans across the country in hundreds of Fathom-networked theaters.”
