Rolling Stones Filmed Los Angeles Clue Show For Possible Release

(hennemusic) Mick Jagger has revealed that The Rolling Stones filmed their May 20 club show at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles for a possible future release. The Fonda Theatre show was a warm-up for the band's 15-date stadium tour of North America, which opened four days later in San Diego.

The club date presented what the band billed as a "one-time only set" featuring the original "Sticky Fingers" album in its entirety with additional hits.

Jagger tells Rolling Stone that the group put in extra effort in rehearsals knowing that the gig was being filmed for potential release. "We had to revisit tunes that we don't do very often, and we had to make sure they worked really well," he says. "We worked quite hard on 'Sister Morphine' and 'I Got the Blues.' They're not actually that easy to do - it's not simple 12-bar stuff."

"Small gigs in the beginning are almost a tradition to the Stones," added guitarist Keith Richards. "We go, 'Well, we started in places this size. If we can do this, the rest of it is just magnification." Check out the Stones official video report from the show here.
