Rolling Stones fans are in for a treat, as the fourth installment of the legendary group’s new series of authorized bootlegs has arrived. Live at the Tokyo Dome (Tokyo 1990) offers footage from the rockers’ second to last gig during their 10-concert residency in the Japanese capital in February 1990. The shows were the first The Rolling Stones had ever performed in Japan and came at the end of their Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle tour to promote 1989’s Steel Wheels.
The Live at the Tokyo Dome release groups together 23 songs – everything from newer cuts off Steel Wheels to the group’s catalog of favorites. “Start Me Up,” “Sad Sad Sad,” “Harlem Shuffle,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Miss You” and “Ruby Tuesday” are just a few of the selections. Longtime engineer Bob Clearmountain worked on the mixes for the album, which is available only as a digital download. Fans can score it in the U.S. via the Google Play music store.
In other Stones news, today (July 12) marks the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones' very first gig, which happened at the Marquee Club, at the time one of London's most popular jazz venues. Happy anniversary, boys!
