Its still not the 50th Anniversary Tour that Rolling Stones fans are waiting for, but it should suffice in the meantime.
The Rock Hall is opening a new exhibit dedicated to the Rolling Stones called "Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction" Scheduled to open May 27th, it will be the Museum’s first ever major exhibition capturing the band’s legendary career spanning more than 50 years.
It will include personal items and extraordinary collections that have never been seen before by the public. And you'll have almost one year to see it. The exhibit will be open until March 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. “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.”
The exhibit, which takes up two-and-a-half floors of the Museum (a half floor more than Bruce Springsteen's exhibit) will celebrate the Rolling Stones’ incredible contribution to popular music from their earliest days playing small clubs, to their era-defining recordings such as "19th Nervous Breakdown", “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” “It’s Only Rock And Roll” and sold-out global tours.
Through the use of artifacts, film, text and interactive technology, generations of music fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with rare items from nearly every aspect of the Stones’ astonishing five decades at the top.
Throughout the exhibition’s run, the Museum will host a range of free public programs that explore the significance and legacy of the Rolling Stones, including interviews, films, and special lectures.
