The Rolling Stones to release new book and DVD set ‘On Air in the Sixties’

Rolling Stones fans frothing at the mouth to catch the legendary British rockers during their upcoming Stones – No Filter Tour can also look forward to a new book + DVD set, which explores their earliest TV and radio performances. Titled “Rolling Stones – On Air in the Sixties,” it will be released by Harper Collins on Sept. 26.

Ultimate Classic Rock reports on July 6 that “On Air in the Sixties” chronicles The Stones’ early performances in the UK, beginning in 1963 on ITV’s “Thank Your Lucky Stars” through their 1969 appearance on BBC’s “Ten Years of What” television special. The book and DVD take an in depth look at the live appearances that defined the “Satisfaction” hitmakers rise to rock royalty via interviews, photographs and documents.

“On Air in the Sixties” features facsimile copies of unseen BBC documents and images from the period. Author Richard Havers has also used material from exclusive interviews held with directors and producers who worked with The World’s Greatest Rock N’ Roll Band during that period.

“The first official, in-depth history of the Rolling Stones told through the band’s television and radio broadcasts—appearance by appearance,” writes the publisher in a press release posted at Harper Collins.” “’On Air in the Sixties’ is published to tie in with the global release of a DVD containing recently discovered, never-before-released footage of the Stones on TV, in front of and behind the cameras.”

The hardcover edition of “On Air in the Sixties" is now available for preorder. For more details or to place your order, click here.

The multi-platinum sellers are heavily rumored to be in the studio, recording the follow up to their chart-topping 2016 studio album Blue & Lonesome. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will launch their highly anticipated AEG Presents/Concerts West produced Stones – No Filter Tour of Europe on Sept. 6 in Hamburg, Germany, at Stadtpark and wrap up the fall overseas trek with a two-night stand Oct. 22 – Oct 25 in Paris Oct. 25 at the brand new U Arena.
