Cherry Rock & Leicashow Presents
The Rolling Stones’ 1973 Kooyong Concert 50th Anniversary Shows

We did it in 2013 for the 40th and we did it in 2018 for the 45th. And NOW….

2023 in Melbourne marks 50 years from when The Rolling Stones sizzled at Kooyong Tennis Centre during a matinee performance on their infamous Exile On Main Street World Tour in 1973.

After a highly acclaimed sold-out show at the Corner Hotel in April, Cherry Rock have partnered with Leicashow Presents to again celebrate the so-called ‘Temperature Rising’ Stones’ Kooyong show on its 50th anniversary with an encore run of shows in October and November.

A track-for-track live tribute will be performed by specifically created local all-star act THE MONKEY MEN, featuring Tim Rogers on lead vocals, Andre Warhurst (Chris Cheney, Rare Byrds) & Davey Lane (You Am I) on guitars,  Stephen Hadley (Tex Perkins, Paul Kelly) on bass, Matthew Cotter (Even) on drums, Bruce Haymes (Paul Kelly, Renee Geyer) on keys, Jack Howard (Hunters & Collectors) & Ben Marsland on horns and Eliza & Talei Wolfgramm on backing vocals.

The idea is the brainchild of host of 3RRR‘s Off The Record’sBrian Wise & Son of Crawdaddy‘s Max Crawdaddy and Cherry owner James Young, all self-confessed Rolling Stones tragics.

Special guests (for the Upwey & Yarraville shows only) are the Stones’ original Kooyong 1973 openers, Sunbury ’73 headliners and early Mushroom Records signings Madder Lake, who are best known for the classic 1973 single “12lb Toothbrush”

James Young offers, “All I can say is check out the set list and see you at the shows”

1. Brown Sugar
2. Bitch
3. Rocks Off
4. Gimme Shelter
5. Happy
6. Tumbling Dice
7. Love in Vain
