Earlier this summer, The Rolling Stones released a digital version of their Hyde Park show, but just for a limited time. And now we know why — it’s time to make room for the CD, vinyl, DVD and Blu-ray versions.
“The Rolling Stones Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live” will be released by Eagle Rock on November 11th. In addition to the concert, the DVD and Blu-ray contain bonus footage from those two shows, the final dates — for now — on their “50 and Counting” tour.
Mick Jagger says, “It was a great… It was beautiful with the sun going down over Hyde Park. I can’t think of a better way celebrate The Rolling Stones’ 50 than doing it on our home patch in front of 100,000 people on a glorious summer night… Enjoy it… We certainly did.” And Keith Richards adds, “Coming back to Hyde Park was like a full circle being drawn, and the band were in top form. We thought, ‘What could be more appropriate than having a great summer in London!’”
The CD and vinyl versions contain 19 songs, and the DVD and Blu-ray have 16.
