The classic performance was recorded in front of a live audience in London and directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who also directed The Beatles' Let It Be film.
"It was an incredible shoot, I think, 36 hours or something," says Keith Richards, as reported by NME. "I remember not remembering everything towards the end… but it was fun… we went through two audiences… wore one out… it was great!"
Due for release on June 7 in the USA and June 28 this side of the Atlantic, The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus benefits from a 4K Dolby Vision restoration on Blu-ray and DVD. The soundtrack was remixed and expanded to 28 songs and is to be issued on double CD and triple vinyl.
The show features guest performances from The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, along with an ad hoc Supergroup dubbed The Dirty Mac.
Its illustrious members on the 36-hour concert were Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and John Lennon.
Bonus material includes three songs from the redoubtable Louisiana blues legend Taj Mahal and The Dirty Mac performing The Beatles classic, Revolution.
