Paul Dugdale (“The Prodigy: World’s on Fire“) directs the legendary rockers, The Rolling Stones, in a free concert played before 100,000 in Hyde Park, London, in the summer of 2013. It’s another doc (Charlie is my Darling, Gimme Shelter, Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones, Let’s Spend the Night Together, and Shine a Light) for the now senior citizens, still triumphant with the same sound act.The last time the band played Hyde Park was in 1969, 44 years ago, where they drew 500,00 for a free concert.
The straight musical doc records the Stones singing such familiar tunes as “Start Me Up,” “Ruby Tuesday,” “Sympathy for the Devil,” and it concludes with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
The joyful concert celebrates the Rolling Stones’ 50th, and is a nice treat for their many young and old fans.
