KH Walk Of Fame presents The Stones @ RollKing Stones Fest 2019 on Sunday 15th September 2019
King's Heath Walk of Fame are delighted to present one of Europe's leading Rolling Stones tribute bands The Stones to headline our 56th. Anniversary Celebration of The Rolling Stones first ever appearance in Birmingham at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom next door to the Hare & Hounds.
Doors Open 7 pm. On Stage 7.45 pm. Show ends 10 pm
Formed in London in 1962 by Brian Jones after he met up with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards who had been childhood friends, the Rolling Stones started out as a blues group taking their name from the title of a song by Muddy Waters. For the whole of 1962 they played exclusively in the London area. But all that changed on 7 June 1963 after they released their first single a cover of Chuck Berry's “Come On”. Just a few months later in September 1963 they played one of their first ever gigs outside London and their first ever in Birmingham at King's Heath's Ritz Ballroom. Joining Brian, Mick and Keith on the tiny stage were Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts.
Universally known as 'The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World', the Rolling Stones have now sold over 200 million albums worldwide, with hits such as 'Satisfaction', 'Start Me Up', Honky Tonk Woman' and Jumpin' Jack Flash', to name just a few - all known the world over.
Now The Stones who have been described as more of a reincarnation than a tribute band will bring to the Hare & Hounds stage all the energy and excitement of a live Rolling Stones concert in a serious tribute to their music.
Their set will include songs from all periods of the Rolling Stones career.
'The Rolling Stones recreated to absolute perfection' (Wnding Wheel Theatre, Chesterfield)
