'Rolling Stones - Bridges to Buenos Aires'
(The Rolling Stones / DVD + 2CD/ NR / 2019 / Eagle Vision)

Overview: Bridges to Buenos Aires captures the complete Rolling Stones show from April 5th, 1998, the last date of the band’s five-night sell-out residency at the River Plate Stadium in Argentina’s capital city.

DVD Verdict: Released on November 8th, 2019, this previously unreleased concert film from their Bridges to Babylon Tour has been completely restored, remixed and remastered and looks and sounds incredible, trust me.

From the explosive opening salvo of '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction,' 'Let's Spend The Night Together,' and then-new song from Bridges To Babylon 'Flip The Switch,' it’s evident that both the band and the crowd mean business.

The latter are packed in like sardines at the River Plate Stadium, all of them moving as one, welcoming back the Stones with the warmth of long-lost brothers.

Bridges to Buenos Aires came just months after the Stones announced the release of Bridges to Bremen, which captured a stop in the German city on the same tour behind Bridges to Babylon.

Like its Bremen counterpart, the Buenos Aires concert film has been lovingly restored from original footage, and the audio remixed and remastered from live multi-track recordings.

The band start off fully clothed and after a quarter of the show have removed top layers, and come the midway point are in tshirts and shirts as they work their internal heat levels to capacity!

'Its Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)' seems to spark a fan frenzy within the crowd as constant shots of them, girls high atop the shoulders of their male companions, showcase endless, beaming smiles and emotive, wide open sparkling eyes.

Backing that up with the wondrous trio of the new-at-the-time 'Saint Of Me,' 'Out Of Control,' and the brilliant 'Miss You,' next comes the obvious stand out highlight. For just before that midway point, Bob Dylan, who had played an opening set, later returns to the stage to perform ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ with the band.

Watching this two-hour concert – which, as aforementioned, was the last of a five-night, sold-out run at Buenos Aires’ River Plate Stadium – sure we get all the hits, played and performed at the most highest of the Stones' passion, but it's like watching a work of art unfold before your very eyes.

Come the final third of the show and, well, all the stored hits come a'tumblin' out, such as a blistering 'You Got Me Rocking,' an emotionally charged 'Sympathy For The Devil,' a quite stunning 'Tumbling Dice,' and a buoyant 'Honky Tonk Women.'

This emphatically stupendous live show then rounds out with one of my all-time Stones favorites, their latter day hit 'Start Me Up,' and then a trio of crowd sing-along pleasers in the form of 'Jumpin' Jack Flash,' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' and a show stopping 'Brown Sugar.'

The Rolling Stones have always preferred to cross bridges rather than to burn them. By the time they said buenas noches to Buenos Aires that night in '98, they had left Latin America a love letter to be treasured.

This latest release from Eagle Rock Entertainment’s acclaimed Rolling Stones archive series will be available on DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, digital video, limited edition blue translucent 180gm triple vinyl, and digital audio.
