The Rolling Stones will release their latest CD and DVD package,Sweet Summer Sun: Hyde Park Live on November 11th. The tracks on the set were culled from the Stones’ two two open-air London shows on July 6th and 13th, 2013.
The set is being released via Eagle Rock in several formats, including DVD, Blu-Ray, two-CD/DVD, three-LP’s/DVD, and a deluxe two-CDs/DVD/Blu-Ray/60-page book.
Last month, a limited edition digital version of the concert, called Hyde Park Live, debuted at Number 19 on the Billboard 200 album charts, and in the UK, placed two spaces higher, hitting the charts at Number 17.
Mick Jagger talked about the Stones return to Hyde Park after 44 years, saying, “It was a great gig . . . It was beautiful with the sun going down over Hyde Park. I can’t think of a better way celebrate the Rolling Stones’ 50 than doing it on our home patch in front of 100,000 people on a glorious summer night. . . enjoy it. . . we certainly did.”
Keith Richards added: “Coming back to Hyde Park was like a full circle being drawn, and the band were in top form. We thought what could be more appropriate than having a great summer in London!”
