It’s London…1962… and one of the most successful and critically acclaimed rock bands of all time is born. The Rolling Stones are rock and roll, an institution, pure and simple. At the forefront of a cultural revolution, they transformed rock music. Their guitar riffs are the basis of all rock n roll, by 1963 the time was right, Mick’s lips, Mick’s hips, Keith and Brian’s pulsating groove and The Rolling Stones were fanning the flames of rebellion.
The Rolling Stones Story is fast becoming a firm favourite and the most authentic tribute to Mick and the boys on the UK theatre scene today. This is a must see show for all lovers of rock ‘n roll. Some c’mon, Let’s Spend The Night Together!
