Boomerocity followers already know what huge Rolling Stones fans we are. It’s always a big deal around here whenever the bad boys of rock and roll come out with something new or re-mastered.

Such is the case with the latest from the band: Licked Live In NYC. Put together by those amazing folks at Mercury Studios, this remastered package comes in your choice of DVD+2CD, SD Blu-ray+2CD, as well as a standalone 2CD and 3LP. In eye-popping color and clarity, you feel as if you’re right on the stage, dodging the sweat being flung by Sir Mick as he prances all over the stage like a kid with boundless energy.

Originally recorded in 2003 at New York’s fabled Madison Square Garden, the performance has been completely restored and remastered. But wait! There’s more! Now included are four additional songs that were not on the original offering: Gimme Shelter, Tumbling Dice, Sympathy For The Devil, and Start Me Up AND three bonus footage that includes rehearsal scenes and performances in Amsterdam.

If you spring for the SD Blu-Ray package, you’ll also get the documentary, Tip Of The Tongue. According to the press release, it ”captures the conception and preparation of the Live Licks tour’s innovative three show/three venue approach. Inspired to switch up venues on a nightly basis between arenas, ballrooms, or theaters, and setlists along with it, the band are captured preparing for this tour from the recording studio in Paris to the rehearsals in Toronto.”

Regardless of the format, this package is a must-have for any Stones fan to watch or listen to as often as your pretty li’l heart desires because, honestly, Boomerocity thinks this is the Stones' best live package yet. Seriously.

“New York City, top of the world…” testifies Mick Jagger after a raucous performance of “If You Can’t Rock Me”. “It’s great to see you here looking really beautiful tonight all dressed up. You think you’re on TV or something?”

New York, NY (April 13, 2022)- In 1964, The Rolling Stones arrived to absolute mayhem for their first show in NYC, after the release of their debut album The Rolling Stones. Having played New York City multiple times, at several venues, it was only fitting that in January 2003, as part of their 40th anniversary tour, they made it a point to return to New York’s most celebrated arena… Madison Square Garden.

The Rolling Stones’ 40-year celebration tour with the NYC crowd bearing witness to a razor-sharp performance is evidenced throughout this entire set.

On June 10, Mercury Studios will proudly present Licked Live In NYC on DVD+2CD, SD Blu-ray+2CD, as well as a standalone 2CD and 3LP. Originally released in 2003 as an HBO special and as part of the Four Flicks package, this concert has been fully restored and remastered with four previously unreleased songs: “Start Me Up”, “Tumbling Dice”, “Gimme Shelter”, and “Sympathy For The Devil.”

Joining Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Charlie Watts were Darryl Jones (bass, backing vocals), Chuck Leavell (keyboards, backing vocals), Bobby Keys (saxophone), Bernard Fowler (backing vocals), Lisa Fischer (backing vocals), Blondie Chaplin (backing vocals, acoustic guitar/ percussion), Tim Ries (saxophone, keyboards), Kent Smith (trumpet), and Michael Davis (trombone) who set the Garden’s stage ablaze. Kicking off with “Street Fighting Man”, the Rolling Stones made their way through “Angie”, “Midnight Rambler”, “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It)”, to name a few, as well as “Honky Tonk Women” with a special guest appearance by Sheryl Crow.

The addition of three bonus performances from Amsterdam and rehearsal footage gives an insider’s view of the Rolling Stones gearing up for this tour. The SD Blu-ray package includes the additional 51-minute documentary Tip Of The Tongue, which captures the conception and preparation of the Live Licks tour’s innovative three show / three venue approach. Inspired to switch up venues on a nightly basis between arenas, ballrooms, or theaters, and setlists along with it, the band are captured preparing for this tour from the recording studio in Paris to the rehearsals in Toronto.

A dynamic performance delivered at one of the most celebrated of venues, Rolling Stones Licked Live In NYC showcases a landmark, celebratory moment in the lives of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band.
