Catching Up With The Rolling Stones - if possible

In June 2016,The Rolling Stones released their new project "The Rolling Stones Totally Stripped."It shows,along with other current plans,that they are as active and creative as ever.This record/DVD project reworks a 1995 documentary film and album called "The Rolling Stones Stripped."The basic documentary film was revised and,in addition,three concerts never before released in their entirety were included on three DVDs for a total of four DVDs and a CD compiled from the live shows in Paris,Amsterdam and Brixton,England respectively.Tonight's sample "Brown Sugar" is from the live show at Olympia in Paris.
The whole idea was to tone the music down to its essentials,minus any commercial considerations.So "Totally Stripped" is a lightly produced collection of live tracks the band had hoped for,yet never fully achieved till now.The multi-media documentary relates their journey to the real music both in the studio and in concerts,on film and on recordings.Some of the tracks are covers of songs written by other artists.*
Besides this project,the Stones are releasing a film about their recent first concert ever in Cuba,"Havana Moon."It will play in theatres for one night only,23 September.*
The band hasn't forgotten the stage this autumn,either.They will be performing at the monumental "Desert Trip" two-weekend series of concerts in Indio,California at the Empire Polo Club,site of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,by a number of rock musicians including The Rolling Stones,Paul McCartney,Bob Dylan,The Who,Neil Young and Roger Waters.The Stones will share the bill with Bob Dylan on 7 and 14 October.The concerts are sold out.*
Following these dates,the Stones will play at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 19 October.So there will be plenty to listen too this fall.It seems likely new film and record projects will come out of "Desert Trip" at the very least.
