Sunday 17 February marks 40 years to the day that The Rolling Stones sizzled at Kooyong Tennis Centre during a matinee performance on their infamous ‘Exile On Main Street’ World Tour in 1973.
To honour this landmark Melbourne concert The Corner Hotel will host a one-off celebration of the so-called ‘Temperature Rising’ Stone’s Kooyong show at its precise 40th anniversary, from 1pm on Sunday 17 February.
A track-for-track live tribute will be performed by specifically created local all-star act THE MONKEY MEN, featuring Tim Rogers (You Am I) on lead vocals, Ash Naylor (Even), Davey Lane (You Am I) & Stephen Hadley (Tex Perkins) on guitars, Matthew Cotter (Even) on drums, Bruce Haymes (Renee Geyer) on keys, Jack Howard (ex-Hunters & Collectors) & Ben Marsland on horns and Eliza & Talei Wolfgramm on backing vocals. Max Crawdaddy will DJ and James ‘The Hound Dog’ Young will MC.
The idea is the brainchild of host of RRR’s ‘Off The Record’ Brian Wise and Cherry owner James Young, both self-confessed Rolling Stones’ tragics.
James Young offers, “All I can say is check out the Set List and see you at The Corner for this historic event…
