The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year's Some Girls album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour followed immediately on the release of the Some Girls album and by the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July the album had hit the No.1 spot on the US charts. The tour took a "back to basics" approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront and little or no elaborate staging. Filmed at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 18, 1978, this concert is typical of the tour with the Rolling Stones delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show.

The extras on the DVD include an interview with Mick Jagger in Paris in 2011, and performances from TV's "Saturday Night Live" in October 1978, including "Tomorrow" featuring Jager with Dan Aykroyd, and the Stones performing "Shattered," "Respectable" and "Beast of Burden." Excerpts from an ABC 20/20 special on the Rolling Stones rehearsing for the U.S. tour (June 1978) are also included.

Many of the tracks from Some Girls are included in the live set with a sprinkling of Stones classics from earlier albums. Originally shot on 16mm film, the footage has been carefully restored and the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multitrack tapes.
