Sticky Fingers was, according to Pitchfork, “about melody, and playing, and style” and The Rolling Stones had all those qualities in spades. Kicking off with Brown Sugar before assaulting your eardrums with future classics like “Wild Horses” and “Dead Flowers,” the album has been on every Top Album list since the 80s!

Phil Jamieson said in a statement, “It is with a mixture of abject terror and completely deranged excitement that I get to go on the road with Adalita, Tex and Tim – three of the finest musicians this country has produced. It’s a complete honour to share the stage with them and interpret one of the greatest records of all time, Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones.“

Tex Perkins added, “I was 15 when I started listening to Sticky Fingers. I mean, really listening, like you’re supposed to. Start with the iconic opener Brown Sugar and go right through to its glorious conclusion Moonlight Mile. For me, it’s close to a perfect album. Every track stands up by itself, every lick, beat and word is exactly where it needs to be... I’m really looking forward to this, hope you are too.”
