The Rolling Stones are both icons and legends. The vast body of work they have produced has helped influence popular culture since their debut in 1962. Active for almost six decades, they are one of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era. In the early 1960s, they pioneered the gritty, heavier-driven sound that came to define hard rock, and their estimated record sales of 200 million makes them one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Expect to hear all the well-known hits, including Honky Tonk Women, Jumping Jack Flash, Paint It Black and Satisfaction, as well as many unexpected and lesser-known gems.

Shows take place on March 18 and 19 at 19h00 and on March 20 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)
