The Rolling Stones: Hyde Park Live 1969
The Rolling Stones’ free concert in Hyde Park on the 5th July 1969 has become the stuff of legend. It was the band’s first full live performance for two years, their first to feature Mick Taylor on guitar and came just two days after the tragic early death of their former guitarist Brian Jones. It was a free concert so nobody counted the crowd but it was undeniably in the hundreds of thousands. This film was originally shot for Granada TV in the UK and captures the full experience of the day. There are interview clips with the band, behind the scenes footage, interviews with the crowd and with the Hell’s Angels providing the security and of course The Rolling Stones on stage, including the first live performance of “Honky Tonk Women”, classics like “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Midnight Rambler” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and an epic version of “Sympathy For The Devil” complete with African drummers and dancers. Newly restored, remixed and remastered, “The Rolling Stones Hyde Park Live 1969” is now better than ever!
