Rolling Stones Weekend – Celebrating 50 years

This weekend 29th & 30th November Tamworth Assembly Rooms are celebrating 50 years since The Rolling Stones played on our stage on December 2nd 1963. On that date back in 1963 The Rolling Stones took to the stage to perform to a sell out crowd, the biggest audience the venue had ever had since opening in 1889. After their show at Tamworth Assembly Rooms, The Rolling Stones went for a few drinks around the town to celebrate such a successful night only for front man Mick Jagger to get barred from The Old Stone Cross Pub for urinating up the bar after having one too many. I wonder if he is still barred today?

To celebrate 50 years since they played there we have organised a Rolling Stones themed weekend by having The Rollin Clones (pictured below) take to the stage to on the 29th November to play all the Stones classic hits. The Daily Mail state “Without a doubt the most exciting tribute to the Rolling Stones…..Outstanding”.

On the 30th November we are carrying on the celebration by showcasing the talented local music scene of Tamworth, who take to the stage and play all of the Rolling Stones hits. On this night people will be quizzed on just how much they actually know about the Stones as a Rolling Stones themed quiz will take place to see who is a Rolling Stones know it all.

If you have any information, photos or even ticket stubs from The Rolling Stones performance at The Assembly Rooms or any history on The Assems and would like to share it with us then please contact us via the contact page as we would love to hear about it.
