The Rolling Stones have celebrated their golden anniversary with five shows, two new songs, one documentary (2012’s Crossfire Hurricane), and a slew of other film and photo exhibits around the world. Now they’ll get their – believe it or not – first major exhibition at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum this spring.
“Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction,” opening Memorial Day weekend (May 24), captures the band’s legendary career of half a century. Included in the exclusive exhibition, which will run through March 2014, are rare and personal items and collections that have never been available to the public.
“The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock and roll,” said Greg Harris, Rock Hall president and CEO in a press release. “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 chronicles the band from the mid-1960s through today, will take over two and a half floors of the Cleveland museum.
A range of free public programs, including interviews, films and special lectures, will be hosted during the exhibition’s run with the intent to explore the significance and legacy of the Stones. More info on the Rock Hall’s official site.
The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.
