The Rolling Stones Detail Previously Unreleased Concert Film ‘Steel Wheels Live’
The Rolling Stones announced their previously unreleased concert film, Steel Wheels Live, is coming out on September 25 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The restored, remixed and remastered film is from The Stones’ December 1989 Steel Wheels tour stop in Atlantic City which featured a slew of special guests along with new material from the legendary rockers.
Those special guests included Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin of Guns N’ Roses who joined the Stones for their 1960s anthem “Salt Of The Earth.” Eric Clapton sat in for the Willie Dixon-penned, Howlin’ Wolf recorded “Little Red Rooster” followed by blues great John Lee Hooker — a huge influence on both The Stones and Clapton — joining them for JLH’s own “Boogie Chillen.”
The show — part of the band’s first U.S. tour in seven years — also saw The Stones rolling out material from their newly-released album at the time, Steel Wheels, including “Terrifying,” “Sad Sad Sad,” “Mixed Emotions,” “Rock and a Hard Place” and “Can’t Be Seen.” The band also offered up classic tunes like “Jumping Jack Flash,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Gimme Shelter” and more
The Stones also plan to release a double A-side picture disc containing “Rock and a Hard Place” (Live from Atlantic City) and “Almost Hear You Sigh” (Live from Tokyo Dome). The vinyl will arrive the day after the concert film for the second Record Store Day drop of the year on September 26. The six-disc version of the concert film will also feature a DVD of the Tokyo Dome concert from the same tour. Head here for more info.
