Eagle Rock Entertainment continues its run of top notch home video releases with “The Rolling Stones: Ole’ Ole’ Ole’ !”

This 2 hour plus documentary follows the legendary band on their 2016 tour through Latin America while at the same time planning their first ever concert in Havana, Cuba.

The film was directed by Paul Dugdale (Ed Sheeran: Jumpers For Goalposts,  Adele 20) who was given full access to the band members as well as their production crew.

Dugdale does an excellent job of pulling back the curtain on this legendary band and letting the audience see the true inner workings of what it takes to put The Rolling Stones on the road. The rehearsal footage is worth the price of admission as you really see that after all these years Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie are true mates. No one is playing for the camera and the affection they have for one another leaps off the camera.

Dugdale also shows us what it’s like to be a larger than life rock ‘n’ roll icon. The scene in which Keith Richards opens his hotel window just to let the fans catch a glimpse of him is priceless. He isn’t showing off he’s letting the viewer see how lucky a bloke he is and that he appreciates every second of his life.

The Blu-Ray also includes seven full length performances from their Latin American tour…

1) Out Of Control (Buenos Aires, Argentina) 2) Paint It Black (Buenos Aires, Argentina) 3) Honky Tonk Women (São Paulo, Brazil) 4) Sympathy For The Devil (São Paulo, Brazil) 5) You Got The Silver (Lima, Peru) 6) Midnight Rambler (Lima, Peru) 7) Miss You (Lima, Peru)

If you are a diehard Stones fan or just a fan of “Rock Docs” then “The Rolling Stones: Ole’ Ole’ Ole’ !” will satisfy you on every level.
