The Rolling Stones Interview: Toronto Phoenix Live 2005

The latest selection in our Rolling Stones bootleg series documents something very rare: a Stones club show. "The hard gigs are the small ones," Keith Richards explains in the accompanying video interview. "If we can pull it off in a club, we can pull it off anywhere." Thats why the band traditionally kicks off each world tour with a surprise appearance in a suitably small space. For the 2005 tour, that space was Torontos Phoenix club, where several hundred ecstatic fans got to see the group test out new songs from A Bigger Bang, experiment with an alternative arrangement of "19th Nervous Breakdown," and have some fun with covers ranging from Otis Reddings "Mr. Pitiful" to Bob Marleys "Get Up Stand Up." They also played "Shes So Cold" for the first time in 23 years. You can download that track for free, or get the entire set for just $4.99:
