The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame presents Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction
There is no rocker like an old rocker and the Stones have been laying it down for an incredible 50 years. In honor of this accomplishment, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will be opening an exclusive exhibition on Friday, May 24 (Memorial Day Weekend, 2013) in tribute of the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”.
“Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction” is the museum’s first exhibition capturing the band’s unbelievable legendary career that spans over 50 years. Included in the display will be personal items as well as amazing collections that have not seen the light of day in any museum. The exhibit will remain open until March of 2014.
“The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock and roll,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. “This first-ever exhibit gives us an opportunity to tell the story of one of the definitive rock and roll bands. The experience should be on every music fan’s destination list this summer.”
Taking up two and one half floors of the museum, “Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction will chronicle the group from their formation in the mid-1960’s right up until today. From their start in small clubs to their anthems of the populace of “Gimme Shelter”, “Paint It Black”, “Jumping Jack Flash”, “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock and Roll” to sold out stadium events around the world this exhibit will examine it all in a multi-media blitz of sight and sound including interviews, films, and lectures.
