ROLLING Stones tribute act The Stones is set to perform in Skegness this half-term.

The group will take to the stage of the Embassy Theatre on Friday, February 17.

“The Rolling Stones are universally known as the greatest rock and roll band in the world. They have sold over 200 million albums worldwide, with hits such as Satisfaction, Start Me Up, and Jumping Jack Flash to name but a few – all known the world over,” said a spokesperson.

“Now ‘The Stones’ bring to the stage all the energy and excitement of a live Rolling Stones concert.

“This is not a tongue in cheek approach, but a serious tribute to their music - the greatest tribute band in the world pays tribute to the greatest rock and roll band in the world.

“The spotlight inevitably falls on Ben Wattam, who performs the Mick Jagger role, and who bears a striking resemblance to Mick.

“And not only does he look like Mick Jagger – the performance is genuinely startling.

“Ben comes from Eckington in Derbyshire, which is significant as Mick Jagger’s grandmother was from Eckington and is now buried there, and Mick has been a frequent visitor to his grandmother’s grave.

“As critical as the role of Mick Jagger is, he cannot do it alone, and the rest of the band do an amazing job of recreating the unique sound of The Rolling Stones, as those attending their shows will attest – you simply will not believe your eyes or your ears,” they added.

The concert will take place at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £17 for adults, £16 for over 60s and £9 for children.
