In April 2021, music lovers from all across the globe will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ iconic album, Sticky Fingers. To pay tribute to the release, a bunch of Aussie music legends are coming together for an east coast concert tour.

What you need to know

  • The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers will enjoy its 50th anniversary on April 23
  • Aussie music greats will be paying tribute to the release in a six-date concert series beginning on April 16
  • The likes of Adalita, Phil Jamieson, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers will make up the brigade

Keep up with the latest music news here.

Kicking off on Friday April 16 in the Gold Coast, the Sticky Fingers tribute will continue across five other dates before concluding on Friday July 30 at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. For Victorians, the series will stop by The Palais on Saturday July 17.

An all-star cast has been assembled to perform for the series, with the likes of Adalita, Phil Jamieson, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers heading the bill. Making up the Sticky Fingers backing band will be past, present and touring members of The Whitlams, Baby Animals, Ayres Rock, Jimmy Barnes and The Divinyls.

Featuring the seminal tracks, ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘Dead Flowers’, Sticky Fingers emerged during a turbulent time in music and politics and saw The Stones continue on their jagged rock crusade; it was an effort that drew praise for its primitiveness and unbridled ambition.

“It is with a mixture of abject terror and completely deranged excitement that I get to go on the road with Adalita, Tex and Tim – three of the finest musicians this country has produced,” Jamieson says of the tour.

“It’s a complete honour to share the stage with them and interpret one of the greatest records of all time, Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones. I’m taking a big breath out, knowing this will be insanely fun but also crazy challenging.”
