The Rolling Stones have struck an exclusive deal with Minneapolis-based retailer Best Buy to carry the band’s new “Four Flicks” DVD set, containing more than 50 songs and previously unreleased footage. The four-DVD set, which will be released Nov. 11 on TGA Entertainment, will sell at a retail price of $29.99.
A Best Buy spokesperson tells Billboard.com that the length of time it will exclusively sell “Four Flicks” is still being determined but that the company will carry it exclusively through at least the holiday 2003 season. Best Buy is now taking pre-orders on its Web site.
The first three DVD discs in the set will be of concerts from the band’s 2002-2003 Licks world tour at Paris’ Olympia Theatre, New York’s Madison Square Garden and London’s Twickenham Stadium. The fourth disc will include two previously unreleased documentaries: “Tip of the Tongue” (chronicling preparation for the Licks tour) and “Licks Around the World,” a behind-the-scenes look of the tour in progress.
“Four Flicks” will have several live versions of Rolling Stones songs that have never been officially released before on DVD, including “Hand of Fate,” “Love Train,” “Monkey Man,” “Nearness of You,” “Rock Me Baby,” “Rocks Off” and “Worried About You.”
The DVD set will also include features such as band commentary, a custom setlist, “Select-A-Stone” camera zooming capabilities, and a “Backstage Pass” option that gives a backstage-angle view of the band playing from a few feet away.
