Fans of the Rolling Stones have been listening to one of the many bootlegs derived from this show for years, but tonight, the original audiotapes and 16mm footage of the concert have been remastered and will be displayed on the big screen for the first time.
The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live in Texas, which was filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 18, 1978, is showing in a handful of South Florida movie theaters tonight.
Aside from the stunning video quality of the 33-year-old film -- at least from what we've seen -- the audio track is in 5.1 surround sound, and the movie itself contains an interview with legendary frontman Mick Jagger that was recorded in August.
For many Stones fans, it's the first chance to see and hear some of the gems that were once known only to listeners of the bootlegs, like Jagger's intro to "Respectable."
"I'm afraid if the band is lacking slightly in energy, it is because they spent all last night fucking," he says. "We'll do our best."
Check out the trailer for the concert below as well as the set list from the show below that:
- "Let It Rock"
