The Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane is set for DVD release.

The film, which premiered in cinemas across the UK on October 18 and was subsequently broadcast on BBC2 to coincide with the band's two date stint at London's O2 Arena last month (November 25 and 29), will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on January 7, 2013.

The film, directed by Brett Morgen, documents the band's career from their early road trips and gigs in the 1960s, via the release of 1972's seminal 'Exile On Main Street' right up to present day.

It features stacks of unseen footage of the band, including commentaries from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

Speaking about the film previously, director Brett Morgen said: "Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual rollercoaster ride."

The Rolling Stones will play the Barclays Center in New York on December 8. They will then play two dates at The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jerseyon December 13 and 15.
