Brussels Affair (Live 1973) is a live album by The Rolling Stones, released in 2011. It is compiled from two shows recorded in Brussels, 17 October 1973 in the Forest National arena, during their European Tour. The album was released exclusively as a digital download (mp3 only format ) through Google Music on October 18, 2011 in the US and through The Rolling Stones Archive website for the rest of the world in both lossy mp3 and lossless FLAC format. The 2011 digital edition has been bootlegged on physical CD. On 29 August 2012, an official announcement was made, stating its physical release as a high priced boxset (from $750.00 to $1,500.00 depending of the edition). All three releases include a triple LP but no CD.
The album recorded during their 1973 European Tour, promoting their latest album Goats Head Soup.
In 1973, The Rolling Stones were prohibited in French territory, because of drugs affairs that struck the band, especially during summer 1971, while they were recording one of their masterpieces, the album Exile on Main St.. The French government made a proscription and they could not play live as part of their European Tour 1973. They decided to organise a concert in Brussels, in October for the French audience, with the help of RTL radio station, which chartered a train for the fans to reach Brussels.
