The studio-born and classically trained musicians of Classic Albums Live romanticize music’s long-playing, pre-shuffle heyday with live recreations of entire records, meticulously maintaining every note and cut of the original recordings. With the opening stutter-step riff of Keith Richards’s guitar in "Brown Sugar," the band dives into the entirety of the Stones’ 1971 album Sticky Fingers. Designed by Andy Warhol, the original record album contained an actual zipper down its denim-clad crotch, which unzipped to reveal the Rolling Stones' logo and white underwear with Mick Jagger's address written by his mother at the waistband. The roiling mix of R & B and rock within landed at No. 64 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

After the tender acoustic strumming of "Wild Horses," a howling guitar huffs and puffs in "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," leading eventually to the mature, bitter heartache of the country-tinged "Dead Flowers." After the group polishes off Sticky Fingers, it peels through another set stuffed with more of The Stones' greatest hits.

State Theatre New Jersey

The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
