- Rolling Stones concerts
Since 1963, English
rock group The Rolling Stoneshas performed hundreds of concertsaround the world, being one of the world's most popular live music attractions.
In their early years of performing, the band would undertake numerous short tours of
Great Britainand North America, playing in small- and medium-size venues to audiences composed largely of screaming girls. As time moved on, they would favour larger arenas and stadiums. For many years, the group would choose to play North America, Continental Europe, and the United Kingdomon a three-year rotating cycle.
Many audio recordings exist of Rolling Stones concerts, both official and unofficial. Eight official concert albums (nine in the US) have been released by the band. There also exists an unreleased live album entitled "Brussels Affair". Several of their concerts have also been filmed and released under a variety of titles, such as "Stones in the Park" which records the band's performance at
Hyde Parkin 1969.
The most famous and heavily documented of all the band's concerts was the
Altamont Free Concertat the Altamont Speedwayin 1969. For this concert, the biker gang Hells Angelsprovided security, which resulted in a fan, Meredith Hunter, being stabbed and beaten to death by the Angels. [Burks, John, [http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/_/id/5934386 "Rock & Roll's Worst Day: The aftermath of Altamont"] , " Rolling Stone", 1970- 02-07, URL retrieved 2007- 04-18] Part of the tour and the Altamont concert were documented in Albert and David Maysles' film "Gimme Shelter". As a response to the growing popularity of bootleg recordings, the album "Get Yer Ya-Yas Out!" (UK 1; US 6) was released in 1970; it was declared by critic Lester Bangsto be the best live album ever.
