Rolling Stones fans have thrilled to the "Sticky Fingers" nuggets that the band has doled out on its "Zip Code" tour ( the Atlanta stop included "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and "You Gotta Move," as well as the inevitable "Brown Sugar").
But only 1,200 people were able to hear the Stones’ performance of the legendary 1971 album when the band unveiled it – in its entirety for the first time - at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in May.
"Sticky Fingers Live" is now available for download on iTunes and features Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts bulldozing through songs including "Dead Flowers," "Wild Horses" and "Sister Morphine. They're joined by their usual supporting cast of the vocalist Lisa Fischer and Bernard Fowler, bassist Darryl Jones and Georgia mainstay Chuck Leavell on keyboards.
The Rolling Stones also announced the launch of a museum tour in April 2016. “Exhibitionism” will encompass nine galleries on two floors of the Saatchi Gallery in London from April 6 through September 2016.
The exhibit will include more than 500 artifacts from the band’s personal archives and delve into their influence on art, design, fashion and performance. Rare sound archives are also expected to be part of the production.
“Exhibitionism” is expected to tour 11 other cities worldwide, including New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
For more information – and to purchase tickets to the London exhibit, which go on sale at 9 a.m. July 10 – visit www.stonesexhibitionism.com.
