Rolling Stones become exhibitionists

The Rolling Stones are following in David Bowie’s footsteps and staging a career-spanning exhibition in London.

‘Exhibitionism’ opens at the city’s Saatchi Gallery on 6 April 2016 and runs until September.

Nine thematic galleries spread across two floors will feature over 500 artefacts from the band’s personal archives including dressing room and backstage paraphernalia, rare instruments, original stage designs, vintage costumes, personal diaries, and poster and album cover artwork.

Of course, 50 years of music will also be showcased through rare audio tracks and video footage presented as “unique wraparound cinematic experiences that celebrate every aspect of their career”, according to the press release.

Tickets for ‘Exhibitionism’ go on sale on 10 July 2015.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood are currently wrapping up their 15-city Zip Code tour of North America, celebrating the reissue of their classic 1971 release ‘Sticky Fingers’. The band kicked off the tour with an intimate show at the 1200-capacity Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, performing the album in its entirety for the first time.
