If you're going to a rock show that blasts 15,000 watts of digital surround sound at you on a screen that's 30 metres high, it better be a great band playing.

Stones at the Max is a concert film of the Rolling Stones, now screening at IMAX at Melbourne Museum, on the world's third largest screen. See this on the IMAX 32 x 23 metre screen and you'll be the closest to a Stones concert you may ever get.

The first feature-length rock concert shot with IMAX cameras, Stones at the Max was made touring the 1990 album Steel Wheels. Filmed in Europe, it was bassist Bill Wyman's last with the band.
The scary face of Mick Jagger, world's oldest teenager

The track list contains a smattering of songs from Steel Wheels but this is basically a high-energy workout of classics like Start Me Up, Ruby Tuesday, Sympathy for the Devil, Brown Sugar and (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.

Along with the usual Jagger aerobic antics, there are the usual blistering solos from Keef and the wonderful stone face of Bill Wyman. This concert has props, sets and pyrotechnics to rival anything loud and eye-popping devised today.

Watching Jagger work the crowd, it's easy to see why they were dubbed the Greatest Rock'n'Roll Band in the world.
