Published Mar 18, 2010Now that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are officially senior citizens, the Rolling Stones are no longer a band that benefit from high definition DVDs. Did anyone else watch Martin Scorsese's Shine a Light in IMAX? Yikes. Nevertheless, the Rolling Stones will be releasing two new DVDs this year, but luckily for the viewing public, both of them use footage from the band's '70s heyday.
The aging rockers have inked a deal with Eagle Rock Entertainment, who will release the documentary Stones in Exile this June. A making-of feature about the band's 1972 classic Exile on Main Street, it will arrive in stores just after a bonus-track-heavy reissue of the album.
The documentary will first air on the BBC in late May, while the DVD promises to include bonus material as an added incentive for purchasers. What this bonus material entails is still unknown, but a press release promises that it will be "substantial."
This will be followed by the first-ever official DVD release of the 1974 concert film Ladies and Gentlemen... The Rolling Stones. Filmed on their 1972 tour in support of Exile on Main Street, it will be screened in cinemas later this year. This will be followed by a DVD and Blu-Ray release in the fall.
Both DVDs feature the same legendary line-up, with Jagger and Richards supported by Mick Taylor on guitar, Charlie Watts on drums and Bill Wyman on bass. In case you needed a reminder of why the Rolling Stones are still one of the highest-grossing acts in the world, these DVDs should do the trick.
