Video Recapping The Rolling Stones' European Tour Premieres Online

Rankin/Universal MusicThe Rolling Stones wrapped up the European leg of their 14 on Fire Tour earlier this month, and now a video recapping the outing has been posted on the band's official website and YouTube channel.  The clip offers a montage of scenes from various locations The Stones visited on the trek, accompanied by a live version of the group's 1998 song "Out of Control," and also includes commentary from the band members.

Keith Richards remarks in the video, "[We] played some amazing places in the last couple of months.  This band is really picking up steam now and there's something in the air."

Mick Jagger notes, meanwhile, "The tour generally in Europe this summer was super up," adding, "We played a lot of the European festivals.  It was great to see so many, as far as the eye can see."

Ronnie Wood comments about the enthusiastic reactions of the European crowds, pointing out, "The audience set the scene for the music.  You never take 70,000 people for granted.  It's always special.  Everybody's smiling, they're happy all over the world.  We make people happy -- it's an amazing feeling."

As for Charlie Watts, he reassuringly declares about the end of the European tour, "It certainly won't be the last show.  We've always been a playing band. That's what we do."

At the end of the video, some factoids about the trek flash on the screen, including that the band played 14 sold-out shows, logged more than 15,000 miles and rocked a whopping 782,000 fans.

Next up for The Rolling Stones is the band's fall Down Under tour, which kicks off on October 25 in Adelaide, Australia, and is mapped out through a November 22 concert in Auckland, New Zealand.
