The clip (embedded below) features band member comments over a live recording of "Out of Control," with guitarist Keith Richards noting that, "We've played some amazing places in the last couple months. This band is really pickup up steam now, and there's something in the air...Where our strength lies is being together. There's a certain chemistry. I can't put my finger on it, but if I knew the answer I'd bottle and sell it."

Frontman Mick Jagger adds that, "The tour, generally, in Europe this summer was super for me...We played a lot of the European festivals. It was great to see so many (fans) as far as they eye can see...They give you so much energy and they're so alive. I just feed off that."

The Stones played to 782,000 fans during 14 shows in Europe, and in the video drummer Charlie Watts promises that, "This certainly won't be the last show. We've always been a playing band. That's what we do."

The Stones return to the road October 25 to make up dates in Australia and New Zealand that were canceled after Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott committed suicide on March 17 in New York.
