The Rolling Stones: Got Live If You Want It, 1989 Vintage

The Rolling Stones had been off the road for seven years before their massive North America Steel Wheels Tour, which began in August 1989. The tour had its finale with three shows in Atlantic City. The next-to-last show, from December 19, was broadcast as pay-per-view and has not been released in any form until now. The film will come out September 25 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Of note are several special guest appearances, first by Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin of Guns N’ Roses on “Salt of the Earth,” then Eric Clapton on “Little Red Rooster,” and also Clapton and John Lee Hooker on “Boogie Chillen.” The Stones posted a short trailer of the concert film with clips from the show as well as audio from their performances of “Ruby Tuesday,” “Midnight Rambler” and “Mixed Emotions.”
