The Rolling Stones - Some Girls, Live in Texas '78

From October 4th Rolling Stones fans will be able to watch a previously unseen Rolling Stones concert movie, The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas '78, in digital cinemas worldwide. Originally shot on 16mm film at Fort Worth, Texas in 1978, the footage has been restored in high definition, with the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes.  The result is an explosive visual reminder of why The Rolling Stones are  the best live band on the planet.

The movie features many Stones classics including Honky Tonk Woman, Tumbling Dice, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash,  Miss You and Beast of Burden, plus an interview with Sir Mick Jagger shot in August 2011 where he introduces the concert and offers an insight into its significance in the band’s history.

Mick Jagger says: “Fort Worth was an amazing night in a blistering hot July. Watching it now, the band were really intense and focused, but we were also having a blast with the fans who were really getting into the show and the new tracks from “Some Girls”. I think our fans will love the chance to see this concert movie for the first time on the big screen.”

The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year’s “Some Girls” album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour followed immediately on the release of the album and by the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July it had hit the No.1 spot on the US charts. The tour took a “back to basics” approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront, and little or no elaborate staging. 

Filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on 18th July 1978, this concert is typical of the tour with The Rolling Stones delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show. Many of the tracks from “Some Girls” are included in the live set with a sprinkling of Stones classics from earlier albums. This is truly The Rolling Stones at their peak.

Running time 105 minutes
Screening at UK cinemas on 4 October 2011
