- Exhibitionism opens in Las Vegas on September 23, 2017
- One-of-a-kind exhibit showcases over 500 original Stones’ artifacts
- It’s not a museum, it’s an experience
The Rolling Stones’ first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, opens on September 23 at The Palazzo® Las Vegas. Scheduled to run through January 31, 2018, the Las Vegas exhibition is the fourth stop on a world tour. It follows the global premiere in London, a star-studded U.S. debut in New York City, and a lake-side extravaganza on Chicago’s landmark Navy Pier, all of which garnered rave reviews and drew huge crowds of music, art and fashion lovers.
Exhibitionism is the largest touring experience of its kind ever to be staged, and the first time in history the band has unlocked their vast private archive exploring the very beginning of their history to the Stones’ superstardom of today.
Bringing more than 500 rare items to Las Vegas
This historical exhibition showcases over 500 original artifacts from The Rolling Stones’ personal archives. It tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in history, allowing visitors to experience first-hand their incredible journey from early days living together in a tiny flat to headlining the biggest stages in the world.
We've been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale.Mick Jagger
From their most cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, valuable works of art and handwritten lyric books to personal diaries, recordings, unseen film and photos, a screening cinema and interactive recording studio that all culminate in an exciting and powerful backstage-to-onstage 3D concert experience.
“We've been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” said Mick. “It’s not going to be like walking into a museum. It’s going to be an event, an experience. It’s about a sense of The Rolling Stones – it’s something we want people to go away talking about it.”
“While this is about The Rolling Stones, it's not necessarily only just about us,” said Keith. “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 unforgettable.”
