To mark the 45th anniversary of their secret live performances at Toronto’s El Mocambo Tavern, the Rolling Stones will release a brand new live album featuring the legendary 1977 shows on May 13.
Available officially for the first time, the Stones lives shows at El Mocambo are widely considered one of the rock band’s most iconic live performances.
Across the nights of March 4 and 5, 1977, the Rolling Stones played “secret” gigs at the 300 capacity venue in Toronto, under the guise of “The Cockroaches,” playing alongside Montreal rock favorites April Wine.
Unknowing radio contest winners were the lucky music fans in attendance. By the second night, word had got out that it was the Stones playing there and it was very difficult for fans to get into the venue.
“We’re up on stage at the El Mocambo and we never felt better. I mean, we sounded great,” says Keith Richards, the co-founder and guitarist of the Rolling Stones.
Live at the El Mocambo will be available on deluxe 2CD, classic black 4LP and limited neon 4LP formats.
