Scorsese filmed the Rolling Stones at
New York City's Beacon Theateron October 29 and November 1, 2006. The concert footage is preceded by a brief semi-fictionalised introduction about the preparations for the shows, and is intercut with historical news clips and archival interviews with band members. The shows, which were added to the tour schedule for the purposes of the film shoot, featured a different set list than was typical of other shows on the tour (see below), and were noted for their star-studded crowds, including former President Bill Clintonand former President of Poland Aleksander Kwasniewski.cite web |last=Glazer |first=Mitch |title=Soul Survivors |publisher=Conde Nast |date=2007 |url=http://www.moviesrock2007.com/article-soul-survivor.php#article-body |accessdate=2008-04-02 |] cite web |last=Boucher |first=Geoff |title=Stones Roll with Scorsese in Shine a Light |publisher=Los Angeles Times |date=March 30 2008 |url=http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-ca-stones30mar30,0,1437315.story |accessdate=2008-04-02 |] The film also shows Jack White, Buddy Guyand Christina Aguileraperforming with the band.
