Get ready for The Rolling Stones Experience as it pays homage to the band that, along with the Beatles, was at the forefront of the British Invasion in the mid-1960s. A band that are true legends of the rock genre. A band that Australia can’t get enough of!
The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock ‘n’ roll and their 50-plus year career consisting of over 120 singles (8 of which topped the charts globally and a further 23 peaking in the top 10), 30 studio albums, 23 live albums and 25 compilation albums, plus countless awards including two Grammy’s, cements them as one of rock’s greatest!
The Rolling Stones Experience is a rock ‘n’ roll band that really rocks out and recreates that Stones’ sound and the songs you know and love with absolute authenticity, professionalism and a band that has over 150 years of combined experience between them. They like it, live and breathe it and they do it well. It’s what they’ve been doing all their adult lives. You’ll be jerked up out of your seat and dancing for hours!
Not just another tribute band thrown together, this is a band that’s been crafting their art of The Rolling Stones for over ten years and are as close as you can get to the real thing. Fronting the band is John van Zyl – a man that has been making people stop in their tracks for the past ten years, often being mistaken for the British rock legend himself.
John van Zyl is a seasoned entertainer and was born to be Mick Jagger. His uncanny look and eerily similar vocal style makes him an instantly recognizable Jagger performer. John enthuses with the same confidence in his musical and vocal ability and his performance as Jagger is flawless… right down to the moves.
“People have been telling me for a long time I looked like Mick Jagger,” van Zyl said. “I love the energy of ‘being Jagger’. I love portraying such a great showman, he’s an outstanding front man and I connect with the prowling, strutting, flaunting and giving the audience everything I’ve got.”
John’s love affair with the Rolling Stones began at an early age. “I was hooked when I got their first album when I was a skinny 17-year-old kid,” says John.
The Rolling Stones Experience will belt out a massive set of memorable and blistering hits including “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”, “Get Off My Cloud”, “Paint It Black”, “Honky Tonk Women” and “Brown Sugar”… to name a few!
Described as “excellent”, “brilliant” and a “wonderful experience of sight and sound”, in the words of Mick Jagger, “anything worth doing is worth overdoing,” and that’s exactly what The Rolling Stones Experience is about! They will have the adrenalin surging through your body.
So, if you like your Rock ’n’ Roll served up piping hot and pushing the boundaries, this show will give you that Rolling Stones Experience, for real! You won’t be disappointed.
