The Rolling Stones have premiered an official live video for their smash 1971 single “Brown Sugar.” The performance is the first to surface from the highly anticipated DVD release of “Sticky Fingers: Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015,” which will hit shelves Sept. 29 via Eagle Rock.
The legendary British rockers unveiled the video on Sept. 14 at their official YouTube channel after posting a teaser clip at Twitter and other social media on Wednesday. Filmed during a secret show on May 20, 2015, in Los Angeles at the historic Fonda Theatre, the concert captures the first and only time the “Satisfaction” hitmakers ever performed their classic 1971 studio album Sticky Fingers live in its entirety.
In the 7:07-minute video clip, The Stones come out swinging from the outset as Keith Richards hammers through the song's instantly familiar opening guitar riff. Audience excitement is at fever pitch as charismatic frontman Mick Jagger struts across the stage playing cheerleader before launching into the opening verse of “Brown Sugar,” singing, “Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields/Sold in the market down in New Orleans.”
“Sticky Fingers: Live At The Fonda Theatre 2015” is the latest release in The Stones' “From The Vault” series. It is available for preorder here in DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, DVD+3LP and digital formats. See below for the full track listing and check out the live performance of “Brown Sugar” above.
