A new video shows the Rolling Stones traveling across Asia. The clip isn’t a full concert or even a single song, but rather a “video postcard” of footage taken during the band’s recent tour of the world’s largest continent.
According to NME, ‘A Postcard from Asia’ was shot in Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, Macau, Shanghai and Singapore and features the band walking through airports, adoring fans and the exotic local scenery. During the two-minute video, which features self-narration from all four members, two songs — a studio version of ‘Bitch’ and a live take of ‘You Got Me Rockin” — play underneath.
“Wherever we find an audience,” Keith Richards said. “We go to them…There’s some long trips on this, but at the same time, I always wanted to travel [laughs].” Mick Jagger adds, “There’s not that many people that’s still alive in rock n’ roll that’ve been 50 years doing it — still doing it…We’re lucky that people still want to come.”
The Stones were forced to cut short their tour of Australia and New Zealand following the March 17 death of L’Wren Scott, Jagger’s girlfriend. The group are expected to announced the new dates tomorrow (April 15). In the meantime, they are preparing for their upcoming ’14 on Fire’ tour of Europe, which begins on May 26 in Oslo and concludes in Roskilde, Denmark on July 3.
