Rolling Stones fans can rejoice because one of the biggest free concerts in history is now available on CD, DVD & Blu-Ray.
This time out we get “LIVE On Copacabana Beach” filmed LIVE in Rio de Janeiro on February 18, 2006. The band were 55 dates into their tour promoting “A Bigger Bang” and this show proved to be the biggest band with an estimated 1.5 million people in attendance!! The concert features a set list of 20 tunes including “Rough Justice,” “Rain Fall Down” and “This Place Is Empty” which are all from the “A Bigger Bang” album.
This show is high energy from start to finish because with over a million people watching you have to play to the back of the crowd the entire show! Mick Jagger is especially animated throughout and addresses the crowd in Portuguese as often as possible. Keith and Ronnie are like giddy school boys riffing and rolling for the 2 hour show while Charlie and log time bassist Darryl Jones hold down the bottom like the pros they are.
Kudos go to the infectious keyboard playing of world class musician Chuck Leavell who keeps the songs jumping from start to finish. The background singers Bernard Fowler, Lisa Fischer and Blondie Chaplin provide support and often do a lot of the heavy lifting vocally on songs like “Midnight Rambler” and “Sympathy For The Devil.”
This concert is a blast to listen to but for my money it’s more fun to watch just to see the joy these veteran icons can still bring to a packed crowd and to their own faces!
“LIVE On Copacabana Beach” proves that The Rolling Stones have been and will continue to be one of the all-time greatest live acts in history and with a 2021 tour ramping up they are still far from retiring!
