Rolling Stones Release ’82 Show + iPhone App
The Rolling Stones have released the latest in their Stones Archive series of classic concerts. Last month saw the group put out a 2005 club date from Toronto, and the newest show available for download is their July 25, 1982 performance at Roundhay Park in Leeds.
For $4.99, fans can purchase the 24-song show (one track is dedicated to band intros). In addition to the expected Stones classics, the concert is heavy with songs from ‘Tattoo You,’ which had been released the year before.
The show has a special place in the history of the Rolling Stones. Not only was it the final show of the band’s European tour, but it was also the last time the band performed with pianist Ian Stewart, who co-founded the band and had served as their road manager since May 1963. Stewart died of a heart attack on Dec. 12, 1985.
This concert isn’t the only new product from the Stones camp. Earlier today (Nov. 20) the band released an official iPhone app. The app, which is free, gives fans a chance to win tickets to their upcoming concerts, get the latest news, purchase their music directly to your iPhone and see other exclusive content. The app can be downloaded at Apple’s App Store.
