For those who simply cannot get enough Rolling Stones live albums, the band announced a new one on Wednesday: Released Nov. 8, Bridges to Buenos Aires captures the Stones in Argentina circa 1998, as the Stones were out on their Bridges to Babylon tour.
Filmed at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires on the last night of the band’s five-night run of sold-out shows, this concert film has not previously been made publicly available. Here’s a preview:
The live set will be made available as DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, digital video, limited edition blue translucent 180gm triple vinyl, and digital audio. Pre-orders are up now via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
What makes Bridges to Buenos Aires especially noteworthy is a guest appearance from Bob Dylan, who joins Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the guys on “Like a Rolling Stone.” More on that, from the news release:
The bard had played his own set to the adoring River Plate crowd before ambling on stage to double-date with Jagger on “Like A Rolling Stone”, which the Stones had admirably inhabited on 1995’s Stripped. Bob’s customarily approximate vocal style certainly kept Mick on his toes, but the bonhomie of the moment gave further warmth to a set that was growing evermore fierce.
There’s also a 50th anniversary edition of Let It Bleed set for release in November — so Stones collectors will have plenty of options this holiday season.
