Called "the greatest rock film of the greatest rock and roll band," this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour that lead up to the free concert at the Altamont Speedway in San Francisco. Before an estimated crowd of 300,000 people, the Stones headlined a free concert featuring Ike & Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Santana. Concerned about security, members of outlaw biker gang The Hell's Angels were asked to help maintain order. Instead, an atmosphere of fear and dread arose, leading ultimately to the stabbing death of a young, gun toting, fan by a member of the Hell's Angels.
