The Rolling Stones has been in the headlines a lot lately because of front man Mick Jagger’s recent health complications. On the heels of the good news of Jagger’s recovery comes some more good news, this time about a new live Rolling Stones recording.
The band announced Friday, that it will release Bridges To Bremen on June 21 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. Originally recorded September 2, 1998 in Bremen, Germany during the final leg of the band’s year-long Bridges To Babylon tour (which ran from 1997-1998), the recording is set for release on DVD/2CD, Blu-ray/2CD, three-disc vinyl and digital audio. A grand total of 40,000 people attended the more than two-and-a-half-hour concert.
The 22-song set opens with the band’s timeless hit song, ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ before moving into ‘Let’s Spend The Night Together.’ The show also features songs, such as ‘Memory Motel,’ ‘Thief in the Night’ and ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash.’ The show’s full set list is noted below.
Bridges To Babylon was released September 29, 1997 through Virgin Records. The album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, peaking at #3.
Along with the main show, Bridges to Bremen will also feature four extra performances that were recorded during the band’s performances at Chicago’s Soldier Field from the same tour. The band opened its Bridges To Babylon tour in Chicago with two shows on September 23 and 25, 1997.
Eagle Rock Entertainment’s release of Bridges To Bremen will come a little more than two months after the release of the band’s latest compilation, Honk. The three-disc collection is set for release April 19 through Interscope Records.
It reaches back to 1971 and all the way up to the band’s 2016 compilation Blue & Lonesome. The third disc, which is included only in the compilation’s deluxe edition, features 10 live tracks recorded throughout the band’s life.
