Rolling Stones release 'Biggest Bang' DVD


LONDON -- A four-DVD set of the Rolling Stones' giant "A Bigger Bang" tour is to be released worldwide via Universal Music Group on July 30.

Called "The Biggest Bang," and featuring seven hours of content, the DVD set is based on the band's global tour, which started in 2005 and is still on going until this August.

The "Bigger Bang" juggernaut is recognized as the top-grossing tour in history and is expected to surpass the $500 million-gross mark this summer.

The DVD set will include performances of more than 55 songs, such as all-time classics "Honky Tonk Women," "Sympathy for the Devil," and "Satisfaction."

Among other highlights is the full-length February 2006 mega concert on the Copacabana Beach, in Rio de Janeiro, which attracted about 2 million spectators.

"Four Flicks was great, but practise makes perfect and 'The Biggest Bang' is even better, it's got all the right stuff," said Michael Cohl, founder of Concert Productions International, A Bigger Bang's promoter, in a statement.

Behind-the-scenes footage will include clips of Mick Jagger and the band in action at the Super Bowl, during an intimate show at a Toronto club, plus performances in the Far East and South America.
