Albums Of The Week: The Rolling Stones | GRRR Live!

The legendary rockers pull out a star-studded 2012 set for their latest archival set.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The World’s Greatest Rock ’N’ Roll Band deserve the ultimate live greatest hits album — and GRRR Live! quite rightly captures The Rolling Stones at their best! The album features some of the greatest songs of all time including It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It), Honky Tonk Women, Start Me Up, Gimme Shelter, Sympathy For The Devil and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

The Rolling Stones celebrated their golden anniversary in 2012 & 2013 by embarking on the 50 & Counting Tour, a 30-show itinerary for North America and Europe. On Dec. 15, 2012, the band took the stage at Newark, N.J.’s Prudential Center for the final of four shows in the New York area. Featuring guest appearances by The Black Keys (Who Do You Love?), Gary Clark Jr. & John Mayer (Going Down), Lady Gaga (Gimme Shelter), Mick Taylor (Midnight Rambler) and hometown hero Bruce Springsteen (Tumbling Dice), the concert proved to be one of the most memorable shows in the band’s history.

Since its original airing on pay-per-view in 2012, this show has not been available to fans until now. The concert has been re-edited and the audio has been remixed. Three songs from the Dec. 13 show (also in Newark) will be available as bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray: Respectable (with John Mayer), Around And Around and Gimme Shelter.”
