Rolling Stones Preview Steel Wheels Live DVD Featuring Axl Rose, Eric Clapton
Izzy Stradlin and John Lee Hooker also appeared at the 1989 show in Atlantic City
The Rolling Stones keep the musical treats coming. The British rock legends announced the details about their previously unreleased Steel Wheels Live – Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The 1989 concert film from Convention Hall features Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin, Eric Clapton, and John Lee Hooker. Both Rose and Stradlin join the Stones on “Salt of The Earth” off the 1968 LP, Beggars Banquet while Clapton plays “Little Rooster” with them. And finally, Hooker comes in on “Boogie Chillen.”
“I would hate to come out with something that’s not startling,” Mick Jagger said about the launch of the 1989/90 Steel Wheels Tour in a statement.
Steel Wheels Live will come in a variety of formats, including a limited 180gm 4LP colored vinyl, DVD + 2CD, SD Blu-ray + 2CD and digital. The set will also include a DVD from the Japan Dome as well as Steel Wheels Rare Reels, a CD featuring songs that aren’t in the Rolling Stones’ usual setlist.
Aside from the special edition restored, remixed and remastered set, they’ll also be dropping a double A-sided 10″ picture disc of “Rock and a Hard Place” (Live from Atlantic City) and “Almost Hear You Sigh” (Live from Tokyo Dome) on Record Store Day’s fall date (Sept. 26).
To make matters more interesting, ahead of this show, Keith Richards allegedly pulled a knife on none other than Donald Trump, who was the show’s promoter. Richards said that he wanted to bill the show as Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones. “I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You have to get rid of this man,'” Richards said in 2018.
