I haven't seen this footage before, it was great to see these guys at the top of their game when they were young. Wow. Even the swedish girls next to me whoop-whooped at the screen after every song ended. Incredible!

A great tour

Did not see this Dallas show but saw them in Cleveland about a month earlier. Cleveland was an outdoor daytime concert. Hotter than hell and Mick was in a ****** mood. Played the basic set list but offered no encore. Was good to see this Fort Worth show was much much better and showed the Stones at their best. I have long had the bootleg audio from this show and loved it. Great to "see" the the action associated with the incredible sound. All the guys were "on" for this show. The film itself was of good quality - much better than the last release in 2010 (L&G The Rolling Stones, 1972). This is for adults only as Mick was quite randy and of course they did Star Star (AKA Star F***er)

The Rolling Stones Live in Texas 1978

If you have even a passing interest in The Rolling Stones, this movie is not to be missed! This is the world's greatest rock and roll band at what they do best; perform live. On a stage bare of any theatrics, the group powered through a well chosen set list, combining both classics, such as Jumpin' Jack Flash, Tumbling Dice, Honky Tonk Women, while seamlessly blending in eight of the ten tracks from the then recently released Some Girls album. Of all the songs, my personal favorite was "Faraway Eyes". Ron Wood displayed his mastery of the pedal guitar on this "country" tune. While some may say that subsequent tours have become corporate events, on this steamy July night in Fort Worth the Stones were purely about the music. They were in their element and as they still do to this day, defined what rock and roll is all about.

The "Some Girls" Concert from 1978 was a wonderful display of some of the greatest songs from the "greatest rock and roll band" in the world. The Stones seemed very workmanlike as they progressed from song to song...quite the level of intensity that makes them the professionals that they are.The Stones versions of "Far Away Eyes" and "Just My Imagination" blew me away...also "Love In Vain"...wow!! The Mick Jagger interview before the concert was a great set up, providing insight for the viewer before show. Any Stones fan or I should say any rock and roll fan should see this wonderful concert.

Now I Know Why Mick Jagger Looks Familiar!

I love their music, but I've always thought there were two bands called The Rolling Stones, one you listen to, and one you watch. Seeing Mick Jagger close-up, I realized why he looks so familiar. Two words: Barney Fife. Now to the movie. The pre-concert interview wanders and is very low-energy. For pre-concert the way it should be done, catch one of the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts. This one is just a place-holder for a better pre-concert bit. The concert, however, is fun. The Rolling Stones in all their goofy glory. In addition to the Stones, you get to see Doug Kershaw on fiddle in the country-western number, "The Girl With The Far-Away Eyes." You get to see Mick Jagger hopping, squatting, and grabbing his band-mates' crotches. Ron Wood's fingers fly, Keith Richards is, well, Keith Richards, and they do play a number of favorites including "Brown Sugar" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Worth the time, worth the money. A great concert? No, but a good one.
