Rolling Stones to unveil "Crossfire Hurricane" documentary in October
(CBS News) The Rolling Stones will release the documentary "Crossfire Hurricane" this fall.
The film, which documents the band's 50-year career, will hit U.K. theaters in October before airing on HBO in the States.
Taking its title from a lyric in the 1968 single, "Jumping Jack Flash," "Crossfire Hurricane" uses historical footage and commentary to tell the Stones' story.
Director Brett Morgen said in a statement, "'Crossfire Hurricane' invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson."
The documentary is just one of many items planned for the Stones' 50th anniversary this year. There's a commemorative book coming out and continued buzz about concert dates. A source told Billboard that the British rockers will play four shows in November: a pair of concerts at London's O2 Arena and another two gigs at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Last week, the band members were spotted leaving a studio in Paris. Frontman Mick Jagger also tweeted a photo from the recording studio.
