Coming on June 10th is the latest Rolling Stones vault release, Licked Live In NYC. The new collection will be available as a DVD/two-CD, SD Blu-ray/two-CD, as well as a standalone two-CD and triple-LP.
Originally released in 2003 as an HBO special and as part of the Four Flicks package, the band’s January 18th, 2003 Madison Square Garden concert has been fully restored and remastered with four previously unreleased songs: “Start Me Up,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “Sympathy For The Devil.” Special guest Sheryl Crow is featured on “Honky Tonk Women.”
According to the packages press release:
The addition of three bonus performances from Amsterdam and rehearsal footage gives an insider’s view of the Rolling Stones gearing up for this tour. The SD Blu-ray package includes the additional 51-minute documentary Tip Of The Tongue, which captures the conception and preparation of the “Live Licks” tour’s innovative three show / three venue approach.
Inspired to switch up venues on a nightly basis between arenas, ballrooms, or theaters, and setlists along with it, the band are captured preparing for this tour from the recording studio in Paris to the rehearsals in Toronto.
The Rolling Stones’ 2002 /2003 “Licks” tour was unique in the fact that in many cities the band played more than one type of venue — from the sprawling 80,000 local enormo-domes to club dates the very next night. When announcing the shows, Mick Jagger was eager for the band to break out of any type of rut once on the road: “We’re gonna do a stadium show, we’re gonna do an arena show, and we’re gonna do a theatre or a club show. It’s also a bit of a challenge to do these three kinds of shows — to jump from one to the other. You kinda get used to playing a big place and then. . . I think it’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be a challenge.”
