The Stones' Sticky Fingers
Presented by: Adelaide Festival Centre
What happens when you take one of the greatest rock bands of all time, choose their most iconic album and bring together Aussie music royalty to recreate it live on stage?
You get The Stones’ Sticky Fingers featuring Magic Dirt’s Adalita, Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson, The Cruel Sea’s Tex Perkins and You am I’s Tim Rogers.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ seminal record Sticky Fingers, these four musicians are joining forces for the first time, as part of Adelaide Guitar Festival 2021.
With a backing band led by guitar virtuoso Matt Smith (The Whitlams/The Badloves/Tim Minchin), this sensational quartet will perform Sticky Fingers in full, plus some of The Stones’ other greatest hits.
Kicking off with Brown Sugar before assaulting your eardrums with future classics like Wild Horses and Dead Flowers, Sticky Fingers has been on every Top Album list since the 1980s and defined a turbulent time in music, politics and the free love generation.
“For me, it’s close to a perfect album... It has a feel of wild abandon followed by a darkness and beauty that is devastating.” Tex Perkins
“Adalita, Tex and Tim are three of the finest musicians this country has produced. It’s a complete honour to share the stage with them and interpret one of the greatest records of all time.” Phil Jamieson
