Come Together: The Rolling Stones’ Tribute Concert

Next January top musicians will pay homage to Sticky Fingers, an album that helped shape the state of rock today

The Rolling Stones have become synonymous with epic, timeless and wonderfully gritty rock that emerged from England in the 60s and 70s. Paying homage to one of the band’s best albums of all time comes this live tribute concert, the second of three from supergroup Come Together. 

Half a century ago, in 1971, the Stones released their studio album Sticky Fingers. The album would go on to reach number one in both the UK and US albums charts, and achieve triple platinum in the US. Eventually, it would also be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and included in Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

This deft and well-crafted body of work was immediately, and continues to be, loved by fans around the world. It’s got it all - the party-starting riff of Brown Sugar to the slow, sweet hit Wild Horses, the brassy bop of Bitch and country blues of Dead Flowers. 
 
Sharing the album with audiences at The Opera House this September are the musicians and producers of Come Together. Kicking off this 50th anniversary special is Jon Toogood (Shihad), Sam Scott, Luke Buda (Phoenix Foundation), Lou'ana and Diane Swann, and more, with a six-piece, brass-studded ensemble led by musical director Jol Mulholland.  
 
The expertise of these creatives, along with a full scale production, sound and staging, promises to do the original greats justice.
