THE ROLLIN’ CLONES AT THE 02 ACADEMY BOURNEMOUTH
Don’t worry. If that’s rain drumming on the roof (again), then it’s just the universe conspiring to beat out the rhythm of 50 years of one of the greatest, most influential rock and roll bands of all time. And if that sounds like the flood waters rising (well hell, it is an English summer), then it’s just your chance to ride the still mighty wave of global appetite for every mouth-watering morsel of a back catalogue of musical masterpieces just destined to make all wannabes really, really wannabe. We speak, of course, of none other than The Rolling Stones.
But who loves them best? No contest. There is a tribute band at large in the world today that has removed all the cheese from the tribute genre and replaced it with beauty and the beef. They can offer anyone who has never had the chance to see the real deal the other real deal: towering musical talent; stage presence wrapped up like Christmas presents, all glitter and colour and thrill; real and humorous affection for their now craggy idols; a frighteningly accurate delivery of gesture and prancing, dancing and voice. These are The Rollin’ Clones. This is the best Rolling Stones tribute act in the world today.
Theirs is a constant mission to deliver the word of the Stones, and never was it keener and more driven than in this, The Stones’ 50th anniversary year. Don’t miss any chance to get gathered by The Rollin’ Clones. The first date in their prestigious tour of 02 Academies sees them take to the stage at the 02 Academy in Bournemouth on Friday, 31 August. For tickets, visit www.ticketweb.co.uk.
