Great Moments in Vinyl makes their Wire debut

Chicago tribute band brings two of The Rolling Stones’ best to Berwyn

Chicago, IL: Great Moments in Vinyl plays the music of The Rolling Stones at Wire in Berwyn, Saturday, August 5, 2017.

It was the era of both The Summer of Love and The Vietnam War. It was the era that gave us Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Richard Nixon. It was the end of the Sixties. And as the wave of music from the British Invasion evolved into something less idealistic and darker, The Rolling Stones found themselves revitalized with a fresh burst of creativity that began with the single “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” and continued through four successive albums that are considered the best that they—or any other band—have ever released.

"No rock record, before or since [Let It Bleed], has ever so completely captured the sense of palpable dread that hung over its era."
Stephen Davis, Old Gods Almost Dead: The 40-Year Odyssey of the Rolling Stones - 2001

"Exile is about casualties, and partying in the face of them. The party is obvious. The casualties are inevitable.”
Lester Bangs, Creem - January 1973

Great Moments in Vinyl celebrates The Rolling Stones at the peak of their powers by performing Let It Bleed and Exile on Main St. in their entirety.

Venue: Wire (6815 W. Roosevelt Rd., Berwyn, IL 60402)
Showtime: 9:30 PM (Doors: 8:30 PM)
Tickets: $15 in advance through http://www.wireismusic.com
