Coming on November 8th is the latest Rolling Stones archival release — Bridges To Buenos Aires — featuring the band's April 5th, 1998 concert at Argentina’s River Plate Stadium. The show, which will be issued on CD, DVD, triple-LP, and Blu-ray, comes from the Stones' five-night stand, which featured Bob Dylan joining the band for a rendition of his 1965 classic, “Like A Rolling Stone.”
According to the press release, “(Dylan) had played his own set to the adoring River Plate crowd before ambling on stage to double-date with Mick Jagger on 'Like A Rolling Stone,' which the Stones had admirably inhabited on 1995's Stripped. Bob's customarily approximate vocal style certainly kept Mick on his toes, but the bonhomie of the moment gave further warmth to a set that was growing evermore fierce.”
Highlights on the set include such recent Bridges To Babylon tracks as: “Flip The Switch,” “Saint Of Me,” and “Out Of Control” — along with such Stones' classics as the show-opening “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Let’s Spend The Night Together,” “Miss You,” “Honky Tonk Women,” “Start Me Up,” “Brown Sugar,” and more.
Mick Jagger told us that performing is like any other profession with good days and bad: “Sometimes you don't feel very motivated, I'm sure that applies to everyone. You go out and as far as we're concerned, you get to some places, you're in the middle of the winter, you got a cold, you feel like crap. But when you get out there something happens because you look at the audience and they're, like, wild and you know they've been looking forward to it, and it gives you that sort of extra bit of inspiration. But most of the time it's there anyway.”
