The Rolling Stones have announced plans to hold an exhibition next year, it has emerged. It will be the first major exhibition the band have collaborated on and will be entitled 'Exhibitionism.' It will look back at the band's fifty year long career.
The event will take place at London's Saatchi Gallery between April and September 2016. As well as classic artefacts, the exhibition will also include items, diaries, instruments and videos from the bands personal archives.
After it's tenure in London is completed, 'Exhibitionism' will travel to nine cities around the world over a four year period.
Speaking on the event, frontman Mick Jagger said "We've been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale...The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it."
Guitarist Keith Richards added "While this is about The Rolling Stones, it's not necessarily only just about the members of the band...It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a group like us, and it’s this, as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that should make the exhibition really interesting."
Tickets for Exhibitionism go on sale Friday July 15th.
