The Rolling Clones have been entertaining crowds across the country for over seventeen years, distilling the show down to a pure hit of rock ‘n’ roll, with a chaser of sequinned Glam.

From the early days of the rhythm and blues, through to the excesses of the 70s, The Rolling Clones’ rock ‘n’ roll show is a faithful interpretation of their greatest hits, delivered with a smirk and a wink, recalling the mischief making of Mr Jagger himself and remaining true to the spirit of the originals.

Without a doubt the most exciting tribute to the Rolling Stones…Outstanding” – The Daily Mail

The Rolling Clones manage to re-create the Stones at their most prolific and do it with all the passion and raw energy of the real thing. Great fun, fine musicians and an excellent choice of songs. Not to be missed!” – The Rolling Stones Supporters Association
