No Security

This article is about the Rolling Stones live album. For the D-Block compilation album, see No Security (D-Block album).

No Security is a live album by The Rolling Stones released by Virgin Records in 1998. Recorded over the course of the band’s 1997–1998 worldwide Bridges to Babylon Tour, it’s the band’s sixth official full-length live release. It was not reissued by UMe when Universal reissued the 1971–2005 back catalog.

Not wishing to repeat songs on previous live albums Still Life (1982) and Flashpoint (1991), The band chose songs that had either never been on a live release or at least hadn’t appeared on a live album for a long time, along with four tracks from the band’s most-recent studio album Bridges to Babylon (1997). Special guests Taj Mahal and Dave Matthews appear on No Security’.’ All tracks from live performances at the Arena Amsterdam, River Plate Buenos Aires, Zeppelinfeld Nuremberg, TWA Dome in St. Louis and MTV’s Live from the 10 Spot.

The album was released in November 1998, and the band embarked on another tour, the No Security Tour-an arena-only tour, crossing North America for 34 shows in hockey and basketball arenas.

No Security peaked at number 67 on the UK Albums Chart, and at number 34 on the US Billboard 200. It failed to achieve US gold record status, selling more than 300,000 copies.
