Extra Licks premiered with footage from their 2016 Ole Tour of Latin America, followed by other shows, including from the 1994 Voodoo Lounge Tour, airing each Sunday until mid-June.
The band debuted Living In A Ghost Town, their first original tune since 2012’s Doom and Gloom last month, which they first recorded a year ago while working on music for a new album but reworked and released it due to its pertinent lyrics amid the coronavius crisis.
