Specticast presents “The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live In Texas,” a rarely seen concert film featuring this classic British rock band at the height of their fame. Capturing both the raw talent of the band and the excitement of the audience, the film is a testament to the power of live music and the Rolling Stones as true rock legends.
The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year’s “Some Girls” album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour followed immediately on the release of the “Some Girls” album and by the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July the album had hit the No.1 spot on the U.S. charts.
The tour took a “back to basics” approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging. It was filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, in July 1978.
