Fans get to peek a the racks of guitars employed by Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and even singer Mick Jagger has his own guitar rack.
Afficionados will appreciate the close up shots of guitar amp settings, microphone placements, and also get a peek at their effects pedals boards. Of course, Richards, Wood, Jagger and drummer Charlie Watts all make brief appearances. Fans can checkout out the new video clip at RollingStones.com or their official Youtube channel.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers also opened the polls today, so that fans fortunate enough to have tickets for the European tour opener can vote for their favorite song. Song selection choices include: "Live with Me," "Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo (Heartbreaker)," "Let's Spend the Night Together," "When the Whip Comes Down," "Get Off My Cloud," and "Just My Imagination.
The Grammy winning rockers are resuming their world tour, following an abrupt cancellation of their initial Australia and New Zealand tour dates in March, due to the death of Jagger's longtime girlfriend L'Wren Scott. The "Satisfaction" hitmakers had only just arrived in Perth when they received the news of the 46-year-old fashion designer's passing and quickly postponed the Perth date with the remainder of the tour quickly following suit.
The Stones have since confirmed new dates for the seven previously postponed 14 On Fire Tour dates in Australia and New Zealand, expanding the trek with two additional shows Down Under. Presented by Frontier Touring in association with AEG Live, performances originally booked from March 19 - April 5 will now take place between Oct. 25 - Nov. 22 with a second show added in Perth and a brand new date scheduled in Pokolbin.
