THE ROLLING STONES LADIES AND GENTLEMEN RELEASED

The Rolling Stones

“Ladies & Gentlemen”

On 11 October 2010, Eagle Rock Entertainment simultaneously release the DVD and Blu-ray editions of the long-awaited “Ladies & Gentlemen” by The Rolling Stones [Cat. Nos. EREDV807 and ERBRD5066 respectively].  This is probably the most sought after Rolling Stones concert performance for the band’s huge fanbase – the only previous release was on VHS in Australia, which was quickly deleted.  “Ladies & Gentlemen” follows on from the highly successful reissue of “Exile On Main Street” in May of this year.  The 11 October releases will be followed shortly after by a deluxe edition box set with additional bonus material and memorabilia.

The legendary concert film “Ladies & Gentlemen…The Rolling Stones” has been fully restored and remastered from the original film print and multitrack audio masters and now finally receives its first authorised release on DVD and Blu-ray. Filmed in Texas in 1972 over four nights of the “Exile On Main Street” US tour, “Ladies & Gentlemen” was premiered at the Ziegfield Theatre in New York on 15th April 1974 and released into selected cinemas across the USA shortly afterwards. Bonus features on this release includes tour rehearsal footage from Montreux, plus two interviews with Mick Jagger; one from a 1972 Old Grey Whistle Test show, and one filmed in 2010.
