Saffron Screen: Rolling Stones event a success

SAFFRON Screen’s recent special event involving the screening of The Rolling Stones concert movie and a pre-film performance by a local tribute band was a huge success.

The sizeable crowd was seen rocking in their seats and tapping their feet to both The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas film and the Rollin’ Clones acoustic concert.

Held on Friday January 13 at the cinema, the event brought together live music with footage of the band performing in their heyday.

The concert movie was recorded in Fort Worth, Texas in1978 at the height of the band’s popularity and featured most of the now famous tracks from this classic album. The footage was re-mastered in 2011 and the film included a recent interview with Sir Mick Jagger.

On the evening, local band The Rollin’ Clones had the opportunity to perform alongside their idols as well as to promote their upcoming charity concert which will be held in Saffron Walden this coming Saturday (Jan 28).
