One Week From Tuesday, Relive Rolling Stones' July 1978 Show at Will Rogers in Fort Worth
We've been here before: the night the Rolling Stones played Will Rogers Auditorium as the "London Green Shoed Cowboys" in the summer of '78. The boot, known as Handsome Girls, remains one of the finest in my collection; I revisit it regularly, particularly that rendering of "Starfucker." No wonder it sounds aces: The show was shot for a film that was never released, a la Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones, much of which was shot in Fort Worth in '72 but wasn't officially shown on big screens till last year.
For those who were there, or just wish they had been, on October 18, The Rolling Stones: Some Girls Live In Texas will make its theatrical debut on four local screens for a one-time-only showing scheduled to go off at 7:30 p.m., per the announcement in the in-box: the Cinemark West Plano, the UA Galaxy 10, the UA Fossil Creek in Fort Worth and the Movies 14 in Burleson. It's said to be the whole show, with an additional 20-minute chitchat with Mick Jagger filmed in August 2011 during which he talks about the tour. But fret not: You can't make it out, the DVD will be available for $11 on November 21, the same day the band's released an expanded version of Some Girls. And the sound track is, well, ya know, already available.
Above is the "Miss You" performance from Fort Worth, for those who missed it the first time around; that's a sneak peek at the film provided by the band a few days ago. After the jump, the trailer.
