Product Description

Director Martin Scorsese captures the legendary rock and roll band in concert during their 'A Bigger Bang' tour in 2006. Filmed over two nights at New York's Beacon Theater, the concert features guest appearances from Buddy Guy, Christina Aguilera and Jack White. Tracks include: 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', 'Tumbling Dice', 'Brown Sugar', 'Sympathy for the Devil', 'Start Me Up', '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction', and many more.

From Amazon.co.uk

Martin Scorsese leaps into the madness of the Rolling Stones’ organization in Shine a Light, barely controlling (in a most entertaining way) a documentary that culminates in the Stones’ best concert on film. The movie’s highly entertaining, pre-performance prologue finds a frazzled Scorsese trying to get a clue about the band’s plans for a very special New York City date in 2006, a benefit hosted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. While Mick Jagger quibbles over concepts for the stage’s set and peruses lists of possible songs to include in the show, Scorsese tries to figure out how to shoot something for which he has few production details. Everything falls into place eventually, and after an extraordinary meet-and-greet scene in which Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, and Charlie Watts catch up with the Clintons and sweetly introduce themselves to Hillary’s mom, the Stones launch into a set that leans less heavily than usual on their greatest hits canon.

Longtime fans are sure to appreciate the wealth of generally-untapped material from Let It Bleed ("You Got the Silver," "Live With Me"), Exile On Main Street ("All Down the Line," "Loving Cup"), and Some Girls ("Faraway Eyes," "Just My Imagination"). Jack White, Christina Aguilera and Buddy Guy are on hand for memorable collaborations, but the Stones all alone are truly on fire in the relatively intimate setting of a small theater. Among the highlights is a sexy and even thrilling call-and-response between Jagger and ace backup singer Lisa Fischer on "She Was Hot," Richards’ gracious and expansive solo on "Connection," and Jagger’s witty take on "Some Girls" (which manages to skip over the controversial verse about "black girls"). Throughout the show, Scorsese and an army of camera operators cover the action from every conceivable angle, which results not so much in another hyperkinetic concert film but rather in the kind of graceful, flattering portrayal of a great band that the director mastered with The Last Waltz. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Legendary director Martin Scorsese has picked the Rolling Stones for his next music documentary after the success of 2005's Dylan documentary, No Direction Home. Seamlessly cutting new and old footage with a newly recorded concert, shot by no less than ten award-winning cinematographers, the film captures all of the raw energy of the Stones live on stage. Old rubber face Mick Jagger, in particular, shows no signs of slowing down as he dances up and down the stage performing classics and previously unplayed tracks from the Stones' back catalogue, which makes this more of a straightforward concert movie than a documentary. That said, interviews with the band from days gone by does provide more than enough of an insight into the band to compliment the superbly-shot concert footage. Scorsese has crafted a movie that delivers more than enough `Satisfaction' for fans and newcomers alike.

This is a fantastic concert film of The Stones' residence at The Beacon Theatre, New York, directed by Martin Scorcese

The film is a mix of documentary type clips of the making of the concert, from stage design to setlist, interspersed with archive footage of The Stones and a mixture of favourites and lesser known songs

The film is very much up close and personal and what comes across is how much The Stones seem to be enjoying themselves.

The highlights for me are Loving Cup (with Jack White), Little T&A, Satisfaction and Brown Sugar

This dvd is even better than the Theatre disc from The Four Flicks Stones dvd boxset

Buy it, turn it up and enjoy !

I managed to miss this in the cinema and waited a long time for it to turn up on DVD.
Its a great DVD, the sound is good quality, the video shots are superb the atmosphere is electric.
Its really nice the way Jagger comes across a bit tongue in cheek and the band don't seem to take it all too seriously.
The Stones aren't the best band ever but they have a long list of rock songs which deliver and have delivered constistently since 1960. Its all good fun.
Charlie Watts does a great job holding the rest of the band together, literally. And Jagger is still mesmeric to watch.
I saw them once in Croydon in the '60's with Brian Jones, only for the sound to be obliterated totally by screaming girls.
So it was nice to get to hear them in concert at last.

It is difficult to decide what is the most exciting about this masterpiece. I like the sound, guest appearances and incredible energy which transcends through the screen. Opening number sets the bar high followed by blast of hits, we born in the fifties, remember so well. I had a good laugh watching Keith smoking on stage imagining the fire safety officer going bananas. Call me old fashion but this is the one you must have!

This really is what your BLU-RAY is ment to SHOW and what your AMPLIFIER is ment to SOUND like.

Crystal sound quality picks up every pinch of air left in these rockers lungs and let me tell you there is plenty of that.

The picture is pure quality showing everything so perfectly even down to the dry roasted pores in the creases of these leather faced rock gods!

The old tv footage and interviews is fantastic to watch and breaks up the concert giving you a little resting time between songs.

This film gives plenty of satisfaction!

Shine a light on bluRay is the reason Blu ray was developed, the film blu ray has been waiting for, a film that will show you what blu ray and surround sound can really do. So said all the publicity hype and reviews by fanatics of the Stones. Its good yea but no more and no less than a concert thats been filmed. If you are a stones fan you will love it. If you are a casual fan of blues and The stones as they were in the 60s /70s ( as I am) then you pays your money and you takes your choice. Is ok but not the stunning visual experience as promoted by the hype. Its just a Blu ray DVD plain and simple.

Firstly, a gripe about the loading times. On my Panasonic DMP-BD35 it took 2 mins 15 secs to display the menu, and on my PS3 it took 1 min 7 secs, which seemed like eons with a blank screen! There were 3 audio choices; DTS HD Master Audio, Dolby True HD, and Digital Multi (With Audio Description). I cannot experience any of these to their full potential, as I am only playing music Blu-rays through my Hi-Fi stereo, which is good enough for me. It starts with a mini documentary, which switches from black and white to colour, SD to HD and back again. This lasts for 13 mins until the start of the concert. The venue is the Beacon Theatre, New York City, 2006, which provides an intimate audience experience. The concert opens with "Jumpin' Jack Flash". What follows is mainly contempory songs, with the occasional oldie thrown in. Luckily "Sympathy For The Devil", "Brown Sugar", and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" are included in the set. Guest performers include Jack White (From the White Stripes) and Christina Aguilera. Included in the bonus songs are "Paint It Black" and "I'm Free". Mick Jagger gives an energetically extrovert performance. Keith Richards' personality shines through (And he sings two or three tracks aswell, although his voice does not come over well!). The concert is interspersed with archive footage of band interviews, and lasts about 2 hours. The concert footage is in glorious Hi-Def, and really shows off Scorsese's skills in direction. I was really impressed with this film, but would have preferred the band to have played more of their early work.
