On December 11, 1968, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono all performed one stage… but footage of the performances was not released until 1996! The Rolling Stones and their guests performed in a replica of a seedy big top on a British sound stage in front of an invited audience. The project was conceived by Mick Jagger as a way to promote the new record Beggars Banquet. The made for BBC TV production was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who would go on to direct the Beatles’ Let It Be documentary.
