Rolling Stones’ seminal Sticky Fingers album is celebrating its 50th anniversary (yikes!) on 23 April 2021 and to celebrate, a quartet of Aussie rock royalty will be bringing the album to back to life with shows in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Sharing the stage for the party will be four of the best lead vocalists in Aussie music – Magic Dirt’s Adalita, Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson, The Cruel Sea’s Tex Perkins and You Am I’s Tim Rogers.
This sensational quartet will perform the Sticky Fingers album in full as well as some of The Stones’ greatest hits in a COVIDSafe, rock ‘n roll celebration.
Sticky Fingers was, according to Pitchfork, “about melody, and playing, and style” and The Rolling Stones had all those qualities in spades. Kicking off with Brown Sugar before assaulting your eardrums with future classics like Wild Horses and Dead Flowers, the album has been on every Top Album list since the 80s and continues to help define what was a turbulent time in music, politics and the free love generation.
Leading the The Stones’ Sticky Fingers Tour backing band is guitar virtuoso, Jak Housden (The Whitlams / The Badloves / Tim Minchin), with Dario Bortolin (Baby Animals) on bass, Hamish Stuart (Ayres Rock / Don Walker) on the drums, Clayton Doley (Jimmy Barnes / The Mighty Reapers) on keys and up and coming local guitar hero, James Christowski on guitars.
