Wild horses won’t be able to keep Rolling Stones fans from the band’s first major museum exhibit.
The Stones announced Wednesday that they’ll be displaying treasures from their 50 years of performing together beginning at London’s Saatchi Gallery in April 2016. In classic Stones fashion, they’ve named the exhibit “Exhibitionism.”
The exhibit’s website promises “over five hundred Rolling Stones important and unseen artifacts from the band’s personal archives … embracing all aspects of art & design, film, video, fashion, performance, rare sound archives and, of course, at the heart of it, the Stones’ musical heritage.”
“We’ve been thinking about it for quite a long time but wanted it to be just right and on a large scale just like planning our touring concert productions,” Mick Jagger said in a statement. “I think right now it’s an interesting time to do it.”
“While this is about the Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily just about the members of the band,” Keith Richards said in a statement. “It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a band, like as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that will make the exhibition really interesting.”
“Exhibitionism” will visit 11 additional cities across the world after its London debut.
