Ladies and Gentleman The Rolling Stones has finally landed on DVD and Blu-ray. The legendary Rolling Stones concert footage, shot over four nights in Texas during the Exile on Main Street tour in 1972, was originally released in cinemas for limited engagements in 1974 and has remained largely unseen since.
Now, restored and remastered, Ladies and Gentlemen makes its first authorized appearance on DVD, and as Vanity Fair writer Marc Spitz notes, “You simply will not find the Rolling Stones looking or sounding any better than they do here.”
The film features outstanding performances of classic tracks from the late-’60s and early-’70s, as well as previously unreleased footage for the tour filmed in Switzerland and interviews with Mick Jagger from 1972 and 2010.
