The Rolling Stones’ first studio album of the new millennium, 2005’s “A Bigger Bang“, made its mark around the world.  It charted in the top five in almost two dozen countries and earned Platinum or Gold certifications in the U.S., U.K., and other international territories.  Jagger, Richards, Watts, and Wood supported the album with “A Bigger Bang, the Tour“, between 2005-2007 – and it became the highest-grossing concert tour of all time (until U2 usurped its crown).  On February 8th, 2006, the Stones took the proceedings to Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a massive free concert.  That show was captured on film and released to cinemas and DVD while the audio was broadcast on XM Radio.  Now, the mega-show is coming to various formats in remixed, re-edited, and remastered form as The Rolling Stones: A Bigger Bang – Live on Copacabana Beach released on July 9th from Eagle Rock Entertainment.

As Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts fire on all pistons from one track to the next, the crowd continues to meet their energy waving Brazilian and British flags while rocking out in the tropical evening sunset.  With incredible staging and graphics, this fully restored and remastered concert from their ‘A Bigger Bang’ world tour now includes four  previously unreleased tracks; “Tumbling Dice”, “Oh No, Not You Again”, “This Place is Empty” and “Sympathy For The Devil”.
