The Victoria ISD Education Foundation is pleased to announce its 2017 Kids & Classrooms Concert featuring Satisfaction/The International Rolling Stones Show!
“Satisfaction/The International Rolling Stones Show" is the international touring tribute show to the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band. This Billboard & Pollstar listed show is now celebrating their 15th Anniversary in production with over 2,500 performances listed to its credit. This highly acclaimed production showcases the most authentic cast and costuming of its kind. The likes of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and cast bring a colorful performance to 50 years of classic hits. Featured in Rolling Stone, Showbiz Magazine, Las Vegas Today, CBS Sunday Morning news and hundreds of national newspapers, magazines, television and radio as the world’s greatest show honoring the Rolling Stones and their legacy.
Chris LeGrand is the executive producer and cast member in the role of Mick Jagger for Satisfaction/The International Rolling Stones Show. Chris founded the show in 2001 with the goal of producing the first touring tribute show in honor of the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band. With over 35 years of experience in the music industry and a bachelor’s degree in business, Chris has grown the Satisfaction show into a 150 date annual touring entity. He has also developed two additional shows including their latest project "Gimme Abbey", which debuted in 2014. It is a Broadway style production complete with multi-media featuring The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in concert together in 1969.
HIGHLIGHTS: In 2005 the production became the first ever Rolling Stones show to debut on the Las Vegas strip to outstanding reviews. The show was also a featured artist on national television news in the 2007 CBS News/New York special on the rising popularity of the tribute industry. For 2008 the show was chosen by Paramount Pictures and the IMAX Corporation to help promote the new Rolling Stones concert film “Shine a Light” by Martin Scorsese throughout the USA. In 2010 the show received their highest accolades ever as they were approved by the Rolling Stones to perform long term engagements with the Walt Disney Corporation. They also embarked on their first ever tour of Russia with sold out shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg in November. Their 2012-2013 World Tour was in honor of The Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary.
