When you’re the greatest live rock band to ever do it, you clearly give the people what they want. So it’s no surprise that the Rolling Stones are releasing a live deluxe edition of their new Hackney Diamonds album.
The refreshed version will feature seven songs recorded live at the band’s surprise show at New York’s intimate Racket club on Oct. 19 as part of the launch for their 24th studio album. The brief set memorably featured such classics as “Shattered,” “Tumbling Dice” and “Jumping Jack Flash,” as well as the live debut of the soul blues burner “Sweet Sounds of Heaven,” complete with a cameo from the track’s guest, Lady Gaga.
The double-disc set — which will ship on Jan. 19 — will also spotlight the Hackney tracks “Angry,” “Whole Wide World” and “Bite My Head Off.” The group has also just released a lyric video for the latter song, which features additional vocals from Paul McCartney.
Speaking of live, the Stones are gearing up for a Hackney Diamonds U.S. stadium tour in 2024, which will kick off on April 28 with a show at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX and include a stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (May 2), as well as shows in Las Vegas, Seattle, two gigs at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ and stops in Orlando, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Vancouver and Los Angeles before winding up with a July 17 gig at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
