THE BEST selling concert tour of all time, A Bigger Bang, is coming to living rooms across the country on July 30, 2007 as one of the most ambitious music DVD sets in history.

The Rolling Stones and Universal Music Group, the world’s largest music company, are joining forces to release, The Biggest Bang, a four-DVD set featuring seven hours of content including two full length concerts, two behind-the-scenes documentaries and classic favorites such as, Honky Tonk Women, Sympathy for the Devil and Satisfaction.

The Biggest Bang offers fans an all access pass including a behind-the-scenes look from the Rolling Stones’ recent tour, A Bigger Bang – the biggest selling concert tour of all time.

Additionally, the DVD set features full length concerts from the Rolling Stones historic show on Rio de Janeiro’s famed Copacabana Beach, which was attended by two million concert goers, and a concert in Austin, Texas – a highlight of the US tour.

“The Biggest Bang DVD set lets fans join us as we traveled around the world,” said the Rolling Stones. “They will go behind the scenes at the Super Bowl, see us play an intimate club show in Toronto and for 2 million people on the beach in Rio, as well as gigs in Shanghai, Buenos Aires and Japan. It features classics but also rarities – songs we’ve never released before on DVD.”

The Biggest Bang is loaded with rare songs and music. It includes exciting never-before-released duets with artists including Dave Matthews, Bonnie Raitt and Eddie Vedder.

There are also rare, never-released tracks including Get Up, Stand Up and Mr Pitiful from a 2005 performance in Toronto.

The Biggest Bang features more than 55 songs and footage from around the world, including concerts in Argentina, Japan and China.

“Four Flicks was great, but practice makes perfect and The Biggest Bang is even better – it’s got all the right stuff,” said tour promoter Michael Cohl.

At Universal Music Group International, Max Hole, Executive Vice President, Marketing and A&R, said: “The Rolling Stones do everything on a larger scale, and this DVD set of The Biggest Bang is obviously no exception. We’re looking forward to giving their fans the perfect souvenir from the best-selling concert tour of all time.”
