The Rolling Stones – Some Girls Live in Texas 23 July 2022: Saturday on BBC Two

The Rolling Stones - Some Girls Live in Texas 23 July 2022: Saturday on BBC Two 11The Rolling Stones’ 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year’s Some Girls album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. By the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July, the album had hit the number one spot on the US charts. The tour took a ‘back to basics’ approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging.

Filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Centre in Fort Worth, Texas, on 18 July 1978, this concert is typical of the tour, with the Rolling Stones delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show. Many of the tracks from Some Girls are included in the live set, with a sprinkling of Stones classics from earlier albums.

Originally shot on 16mm film, the footage has been carefully restored and the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes. This is undeniably the Rolling Stones at the peak of their form.
