The Stones roll even further!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rolling Stones: Four Flicks [DVD] (DVD)
Being a Stones fan and seeing Madison Square Garden and Twickenham shows,I was eagerly awaiting the Four Flicks DVD set!After a lot of hours spread over 2 days watching the 4 discs,all my expectations were more than I ever believed possible.The camera-work,sound,bonus features,were all the best I have ever seen or heard on a music DVD.Starting with the documentary disc which was realy interesting in looking at what go's on in the world of the Rolling Stones when they are on tour!Lots of bits of rehearsal footage and informal chats within the band.The New York show was brilliant as Madison Square Garden is a great indoor arena,the Stones were in top form and played a great setlist!This included Midnight Rambler,Can't you hear me knockin'as well as the old favourites.Twickenham is my personal best show of the tour as I was in the 4th row that night!It was the first time the Stones have played Twickenham Rugby Ground .............the first time any band have played there!Atmosphere of the day is reflected at the start of DVD with scenes of outside the stadium and then arial views of stadium and huge crowd and then breaks into the first number.......Brown Sugar,and the crowd go's wild!This was a fantastic show and the DVD clearly shows this.The Olympia theatre show was a small intimate show that all diehard Stones fans would love to see but tickets for these shows were very hard to come by,so this excellant DVD of the gig is the next best thing.Plenty of tracks like No Expectations,Hand of Fate and Live With Me would appeal to the diehard fans as well as a few soul numbers and old faves like Start me up,Honkey Tonk Women and of course the song they usually have as an encore,Jumping Jack Flash.All in all,4 terrific DVD's with plenty of added features like back-stage pass and band commentary which you can add on to show while watching if you so desire.The best music DVD's I have in my collection.
