The previously unissued Rolling Stones concert film Bridges To Bremen has been confirmed for release by Eagle Vision on 21 June. It captures a complete 1998 show from the final leg of the band’s year-long tour in support of the Bridges To Babylon album, which went platinum or gold in many countries around the world.

The set will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, digital, DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, triple vinyl and digital audio formats. It has been completely restored, remixed and remastered for the new release. In addition to the complete show at the Weserstadion in Bremen in northwestern Germany, all physical visual formats will feature four tracks from the Stones’ performances at Soldier Field in Chicago as bonus features.

The Bridges To Babylon Tour was the first on which the band used a permanent B-stage feature, allowing fans in the middle of stadia a surprise close-up view. It also marked the first time that fans were able to vote on the Stones’ website for a favourite track to be added to the night’s set list: at the Bremen show, they opted for ‘Memory Motel.’

The show, to a relatively intimate (for the Stones) audience of 40,000 was also beamed to a multi-million audience via a TV special seen across Europe and beyond. It featured an epic 155-minute set featuring countless classics from their catalogue as well as the then-new tracks from the current album ‘Flip The Switch,’ ‘Anybody Seen My Baby,’ ‘Saint Of Me’ and ‘Out Of Control.’

Bridges To Bremen is released on 21 June. Scroll down for the full tracklisting, and pre-order it here.
