IT'S phoney rock n roll, but do you like it?

Said to be "absolutely hilarious" by Jagger's ex, Jerry Hall, the Counterfeit Stones will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with another tour, stopping at the Cliffs Pavilion on Thursday June 23.

The show is essentially a mockumentary of the Rolling Stones’ colourful history. As well as performing what are said to be spot on renditions of their greatest hits, (such is the accuracy of the band that they were chosen to play the soundtracks on Stephen Wooley’s feature film Stoned and a Channel 4 documentary on the Rolling Stones’ early years with Brian Jones), it includes a series of spoof film clips depicting real and imagined events such as The Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus; that famous drug bust with the girl in a rug; the search for Brian Jones’ replacement and being exposed as a scam on TV.

These mini-movies have been originally produced and conveniently cover the costume and set changes presenting a visual feast that transcends five decades.

Not only have Nick Dagger, Keef Rickard, Bill Hymen, Charlie Mott and the Unholy Trinity of Bryon Jones/Mick Tailor-Made/ Ronnie B. Goode been thrilling sold-out crowds around the globe for 25 years but are regularly invited to play post tour parties (Oasis, Motorhead, Phil Collins); support spots (Barry Manilow, Iggy Pop, ZZ Top,); posh dos (Bill Clinton, Prince Edward, Sir Tim Rice); corporate bashes (Microsoft, Vodafone, Jack Daniels) and even a function on board an aircraft carrier in San Diego for 6000 lawyers attending a conference on counterfeiting.

This skilfully mixed cocktail of classic hits, retro costume and humour promises to "intoxicate young and old alike, give a huge dose of nostalgia for those who were there and an education for those who weren’t".

At £20.50 a ticket, they are a lot cheaper than the real deal too, available from or by calling the box office on 01702 351135.

The show starts at 8pm.
