A ROLLING STONES TRIBUTE - The Glimmer Twins

Bio

The Rolling Stones have long been hailed as The Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band in the World. But before they became the corporate machine that they are sometimes referred to as today, they earned this title by wowing audiences worldwide with some of the most electrifying performances in the history of rock-n-roll. Beginning with the recording of the classic album ‘Beggar’s Banquet’ in the late 60’s, the Rolling Stones would enter into what is widely considered to be their most creative period that would continue right up through the release of the album ‘Exile On Main St.’ You will be amazed at the way The Glimmer Twins are able to recreate the look and feel of The Rolling Stones during this period and beyond.

The Rolling Stones single handedly changed the way rock concerts were presented to large audiences when they kicked off their ’69 U.S. Tour which is thoroughly documented in the movie ‘Gimme Shelter’. By combining the raw energy of the band with the more sophisticated amplification systems for the times, The Stones were able to connect with their mass audiences in sold-out arenas on a whole new level. The Glimmer Twins will give you a close-up view and feeling of what it was like to be in the audience at one of these historical performances
