stones50inAs the November 11 release of The Rolling Stones’ Sweet Summer Sun — Hyde Park Live concert video approaches, the band is giving fans a little preview of what they can expect from the flick.

A clip of the rock legends’ full performance of their classic “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” at the July event can be viewed now on YouTube.

The video version of the release will feature 16 performances culled from The Stones’ July 6 and July 13 concerts at the London park, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the shows.

In a promo trailer for Sweet Summer Sun, guitarist Keith Richards notes about the shows, “We’ve been on the road 50 years and a gig’s a gig.  You’re just gonna go out there…and try and murder ‘em…And when you get up on that stage and you hit the first notes and you look at that sea of people, man, it’s like coming home — if you have one.”

Meanwhile, a special screening of Sweet Summer Sun is scheduled to be held at London’s Electric Cinema on Thursday.  You can enter for a chance to win free tickets by signing up for the mailing list at SweetSummerSun.com.
