The Rolling Stones’ 1973 Kooyong Concert 50th Anniversary Show is heading to Bendigo

The all-star show is commemorating one of the most iconic concert performances in Australian rock history.

50 years ago The Rolling Stones sizzled at Kooyong Tennis Centre during a matinee performance on their infamous Exile On Main Street World Tour in 1973.

Punters were offered a chance to relive the magic in 2013 for the 40th anniversary and again in 2018 for the 45th. Now, it’s time for its 50th anniversary bash, promising to be the grandest tribute yet, bringing an encore run of shows in October and November. Locally you can catch it at Bendigo on November 11.

After the phenomenal success of their sold-out show at the Corner Hotel in April, Cherry Rock has teamed up with Leicashow Presents for this special event. They’ve curated an all-star local act, none other than THE MONKEY MEN, featuring Tim Rogers on lead vocals, Andre Warhurst and Davey Lane on guitars, Stephen Hadley on bass, Matthew Cotter on drums, Bruce Haymes on keys, Jack Howard and Ben Marsland on horns, and Eliza & Talei Wolfgramm on backing vocals.

The band will deliver a track-for-track live tribute, with a set list including the likes of ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Love in Vain’, ‘Sweet Virginia’, ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ and ‘Midnight Rambler’, among others.

Special guests will be joining the Upwey and Yarraville shows, including Stones’ original Kooyong 1973 openers, Sunbury ’73 headliners, and early Mushroom Records signees, Madder Lake, who have gifted us with the unforgettable classic “12lb Toothbrush” in 1973.

Prepare to rock out like it’s 1973 all over again!
