Sharing the stage with the Rolling Stones in Perth

After having to keep it quiet for so long, it's nice to be able to finally spread the news of my recent time on stage with The Rolling Stones. The Giovanni Consort got the email request to join the Stones on stage for 'You can't always get what you want' months and months in advance. I wasn't able to sing the first time the concert came around but in a bittersweet turn of events after Mick Jagger's wife passed in March, the performance was postponed till October. This time, I was free for both of the newly booked concerts, taking my place at the sound check along my brothers and sisters of the Consort.

It was quite surreal to be on stage with these hardened professional rockers and of course the legendary Mr Jagger who was by no means an 'over the hill' performer in his later years. He is still so on top of the game! The noise on the stage from not just the speakers but also from the huge audience was incredible! It may have just been one song but it felt like we could be part of Perth's pop music history as Mick started off the crowd's cheer when he thanked the Giovanni Consort to the sold out Perth Arena.
