‘Voodoo Lounge’ from 1994 was the Stones first new studio album in five years and was the first without Bill Wyman who departed the band the year before. They hit the road in August 1994 for a years worth of shows and the show issued here came out on video in late 1995 to coincide with their ‘Stripped’ live album. The original video received a DVD release a few years later.
‘Voodoo Lounge Uncut’ features guest appearances by Sheryl Crow, Robert Cray and Bo Diddley. The film conveys the audio-visual mastery of the Stones at their best, with stunning, futuristic staging that set a new benchmark for stadium production values. The new version of the film has been recut and remastered rom the original rushes and includes newly remixed and remastered audio. The band’s millions of devotees will also be delighted to know that it reinstates the ten tracks that were cut from the original video release in the 1990s and which appear here in their original running order for the first time.
The performance came some three months into the Voodoo Lounge tour, which the band launched around the release of their 20th UK studio album of the same name. The tour spanned some 56 weeks, four legs, 134 shows and six continents. The show in Miami took place the night after Thanksgiving Day and grossed $2.5 million.
In the film, we see the Stones take the stage to “Not Fade Away” and delight the massive crowd with a set featuring all of their adored hits as well as “You Got Me Rocking”, “Sparks Will Fly” and “I Go Wild”, all of them from the then-new album. The show builds to a mighty finale of “Brown Sugar” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”. Five additional songs from the tour’s Giants Stadium show in New Jersey are also included.
