The nostalgia-laced film chronicles the band’s historic London concert in the summer of 2013 and the thrill of performing their classic tunes before a wild sea of fans. The concert, which marked 44 years since the Rolling Stones’ legendary free concert in July 1969, includes explosive highlights “Start Me Up,” “Brown Sugar,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Miss You,” “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Gimme Shelter,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
“Sweet Summer Sun” is directed by Paul Dugdale and executive produced by Joyce Smyth, Julie Jakobek, Geoff Kempin and Terry Shand for Eagle Rock Entertainment and includes never-before-seen backstage footage of a modern event that was also a tribute to the past.
“The Rolling Stones: Sweet Summer Sun – Return to Hyde Park” will premiere on Showtime December 20 at 9pm ET/PT. Check out the trailer below:
