The Rolling Stones announce Bridges To Bremen release

The Rolling Stones will release a live concert package from their 1997-98 Bridges To Babylon tour later this spring.

Due June 21, “Bridges To Bremen” presents a complete show from the final leg of the year-long trek in support of the album, which achieved Platinum and Gold status in multiple markets upon its original release in 1997.

The world tour marked a pair of firsts for the Stones, including the first time the band went on the road with a permanent B-stage, and also the first time that fans could vote via the group's website for a track they wanted to hear at the show in their city.

Film of the 2.5 hour German concert before 40,000 fans has been meticulously restored from the original masters, and the audio remixed and remastered from the live multitrack recordings; as an added bonus, the set delivers four tracks from the band's Soldier Field performances in Chicago on all physical visual formats.

“Bridges To Bremen” will be available in multiple packages, including digital, DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, triple vinyl and digital audio.

Stones frontman Mick Jagger continues to recover in a New York hospital following surgery on April 4 to replace a valve in his heart.

The issue led to the postponement of the band's 2019 No Filter tour of North America, which was set to begin later this month in Miami Gardens, FL.

Billboard reports that the tour will now begin in July with new dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
