The Rolling Stones - Live At The Wiltern

The Rolling Stones' Live At The Wiltern captures the essence of the band's Licks World Tour in 2002, specifically their memorable show at the Wiltern in Los Angeles on November 22nd. Available in mulitple formats.

Available in various formats, including DVD+2CD, Blu-ray+2CD, 2CD, and 3LP (in Black, Gold, and Black & Bronze Swirl variants), the Rolling Stones' Live At The Wiltern is an audio-visual celebration of the band's 40th anniversary tour of 2002 and 2003.

That tour, a major success with 117 shows and over $300 million in revenue, descended on Los Angeles' Wiltern Theater for a rare intimate show in front of 2000 adoring fans. The setlist that night included classics like "Stray Cat Blues," "No Expectations," and a lively rendition of "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" with Solomon Burke, the co-author of the 1964 soul classic.

Featuring over 80 songs from the band's extensive catalog, the tour itself showcased Mick Jagger's versatility, as he played guitar, harmonica, and keyboards. Keith Richards, of course, delivered both visually and musically, complemented by Ron Wood's seamless guitar work. The late Charlie Watts anchored the band's rhythm, with additional contributions from bassist Darryl Jones, keyboardist Chuck Leavell, the late saxophonist Bobby Keys, and backing vocalists Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler, and Blondie Chaplin.

The Wiltern show attracted an A-list audience, including Tom Petty, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow, Johnny Depp, Stephen Stills, and Eddie Murphy. Despite the star-studded crowd, the Rolling Stones delivered what many consider one of their best performances.

Wood highlighted the band's commitment to spontaneity on the tour, saying, "We couldn’t really go through a whole tour doing predictable shows. We’ve got to have songs out of the blue.” Jagger continued, “…it makes it interesting for the audience and the band. I’ve got to think a lot more about set lists than I’ve ever done.” While Richards added, “Sometimes on the road, the weather’s bad and half the band’s down with something, but apart from those obvious blue days, there’s an amazing freshness about these guys."

Live At The Wiltern isn't just a concert recording; it's a snapshot of a moment when rock legends defied expectations and delivered a night of pure, unadulterated music.
