The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus to screen in cinemas

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus will be screened in cinemas across the USA on April 1.

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was filmed on 11 December 1968. It was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg who later made The Beatles ‘Let It Be’ movie.

The film was abandoned and remained unreleased until Lindsay-Hogg decided to attempt to edit the footage in 1992. Some of the footage was thought to have been destroyed but was found in vaults of The Who in 1993. He eventually finished it off in 1996.

This performance marks the first musical concert in which John Lennon performed before an audience outside The Beatles, as part of supergroup The Dirty Mac, which also included music legends Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Mitch Mitchell. The Rolling Stone Rock and Roll Circus is also the only time Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath performed with Jethro Tull, and the last time Brian Jones would perform with The Rolling Stones in front of an audience.

The film has been restored from the original 35mm internegative with new Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos sound.

“We are thrilled to share the incredible The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus with moviegoers and music fans for this limited engagement,” said Darryl Schaffer, executive vice president of operations and exhibitor relations, Screenvision Media. “We think it’s the perfect time to answer fans’ excitement and give them an unforgettable concert experience from the comfort of their local movie theatres.”
