The Rolling Stones’ guest-filled 50th anniversary December 15th, 2012 concert at The Prudential Center in Newark will be released as a live album and DVD titled “GRRR Live!“, released February 10th. Joining the Stones on different songs are Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr. and John Mayer, and former Stones member Mick Taylor.

From the announcement: The Rolling Stones celebrated their golden anniversary in 2012 and 2013 by embarking on the 50 & Counting Tour, a 30-show itinerary for North America and Europe. On December. 15th, 2012, the band took the stage at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center for the final of four shows in the New York area. Featuring guest appearances by Mick Taylor (“Midnight Rambler”), The Black Keys (“Who Do You Love?”), Gary Clark Jr and John Mayer (“Going Down”), Lady Gaga (“Gimme Shelter”), and hometown hero Bruce Springsteen (“Tumbling Dice”), the concert proved to be one of the most memorable shows in the band’s history.

Since its original airing on pay-per-view in 2012, this show has not been available since. 

Billed officially as “the ultimate live greatest hits album,” GRR Live! aims to be just that: Some of the biggest and most celebrated hits from the vaunted catalog of the Rolling Stones over the years.

The show will be released in three-LP vinyl, two-CD, DVD + 2CD and Blu-ray + 2CD versions.

The concert was available as pay-per-view special in 2012 but has been re-edited and remixed for this release. Three bonus songs from the December 13th concert, 2012 concert at The Prudential Center — including “Respectable” (with Mayer), “Around and Around” and “Gimme Shelter” — will be available in the DVD and Blu-ray packages.
