The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil (1968)

Written by on December 14, 2019

December 11, 1968: Filming began for "The Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus" in London. The show was filmed inside a circus tent, and, along with clowns, animals and acrobats, featured performances by the Stones, The Who, Taj Mahal, Marrianne Faithful, Jethro Tull and The Dirty Mac (a one-off group with John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, and Keith Richards). This would be Brian Jones' last public appearance with the Stones; he would be fired from the group the following June.

The show was originally meant to be aired on the BBC as a holiday special, but the Stones withheld it because they were reportedly unhappy with their performance. It would finally be released in 1996.
