On July 6, the Houston Symphony will present a concert featuring Music of the Rolling Stones in the comfort of air-conditioned Jones Hall. Under the direction of guest conductor Brent Havens, the Symphony will perform a rock ‘n’ roll tribute concert to The Rolling Stones featuring many of the band’s greatest hits including “I Can’t Get No (Satisfaction),” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” “Start Me Up,” “Ruby Tuesday” and more. Vocalist Brody Dolyniuk will perform alongside the Symphony, portraying the distinctive vocals of the band’s lead singers, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. With the sounds of the band’s blues infused rock ‘n’ roll, the concert will take audiences back to the 1960s when British rock and pop bands took American musical culture by storm.
Hailed as the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Rolling Stones celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2012. A testament to the band’s success, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Rolling Stones fourth on the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" list. Having released 24 studio albums, 11 live albums and numerous compilations, the band’s impact is familiar to audiences worldwide, even to this day.
