The Rolling Stones Revue – an all-star tribute band comprising Aussie legends Adalita (Magic Dirt), Phil Jamieson (Grinspoon), Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Hard-Ons, about 600 other iconic bands) – have announced an eight-date tour to pay homage to the classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers.

The ultimate Stones celebration will see the band play two sets every night, first rolling through Sticky Fingers in its entirety, then smashing out a full suite of other hits from the Rolling Stones sprawling discography. Highlights noted in a press release included Satisfaction, Jumping Jack Flash, Gimme Shelter, Start Me Up, Honky Tonk Woman and Sympathy For The Devil.

The tour will begin at Anita’s Theatre in Thirroul on Saturday June 29, followed by an appearance at the Big Red Bash in Birdsville, Queensland on Wednesday July 3 (though it should be noted Adalita will be sitting this one out). From there, the band will hit stages in Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney and Newcastle. To wrap it all up, The Rolling Stones Revue will perform at the Mundi Mundi Bash in Broken Hill on Friday August 16.

Tickets to all of the headline shows go on sale at 10am local time next Tuesday (March 12), following a presale that kicks off at the same time this Friday. You can access the presale by signing up to the band’s database, or bookmark this link for the general sale. Otherwise, tickets for both the Big Red Bash and Mundi Mundi Bash can be found here.

In a press statement, Adalita said of the upcoming tour: “I’m so thrilled to once again be joining my good mates to celebrate this incredibly iconic band I cannot wait to get my teeth into this one, it’s going to be an amazing show!”

Rogers shared the sentiment, albeit in his own unique fashion: “Them bloody longhaired Rolled Stones have ruined it for all us good hearted folks with morals and underwear. What can a tender boy do, huh? Can’t beat ‘em, gonna join ‘em. This malarkey happening again. Shadoobie.”
