This is a DVD of a Stones live club gig at The Double Door Chicago on September 18th, 1997, five nights before the Bridges To Babylon tour kicked off at the city's Soldier Field Stadium.
The decision to do the Double Door club gig wasn't made until midnight the day before. Hardcore fans with contacts jumped their cars to rush into Chicago. At 9 AM in the morning they put up a sign outside the Double Door simply saying The Rolling Stones. They charged a standard fee of $7 per ticket, you had to show an ID card, and they wrote your name on the armwrist band that was put on each ticketholders hand to prevent ticket scalping. A total of 230 tickets were sold to people calling in early on the Double Door. Another 170 tickets went to VIP people, and some people managed to talk their way into the Double Door last minute. The crowd of 400 was actually 100 less than the club could hold, but the Stones management wanted space for TV and radio equipment as well.
The show was professionally filmed for posterity, but never released for commercial consumption. The sound and picture are only about 7/10.

You Got Me Rocking
The Last Time
Anybody Seen My Baby (the live debut of this tune!)
