The Rolling Stones‘ A Bigger Bang: Live On Copacabana Beach live album and concert film arrived today via Mercury Studios. The highly anticipated release documents The Stones’ historic February 8, 2006 concert at the legendary Rio de Janiero locale in one of the biggest free concerts in history.
The Rolling Stones released much of the concert in their 2007 concert film The Biggest Bang. But A Bigger Bang is remixed, re-edited, and remastered and boasts tracks not featured on the ‘07 edition including “Tumbling Dice,” “Oh No, Not You Again,” “This Place Is Empty” and “Sympathy For The Devil.” The Stones also previewed the release with their performance of the classic “Brown Sugar” along with a five-track teaser EP that contained “Wild Horses,” “Happy” and more.
“Not that we’re unused to playing some of the biggest shows in the world, but I must say Rio did take the cake,” Keith Richards said of the landmark concert. “‘It was amazing,” Mick Jagger added. “It was a really good audience. They know how to enjoy themselves on those occasions.”
