About Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction
As the Museum’s first major exhibition capturing the band’s legendary career spanning more than 50 years, Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction reveals personal items and extraordinary collections that have never been seen before by the public. An extensive collection which takes up two-and-a-half floors of the Museum and offers fans the opportunity to contribute.
As part of the exhibit the Museum’s Education Department has developed a series of Education Stations called Can You Hear the Music? Using iPad technology the stations take Museum visitors deeper into the musical sound of the Rolling Stones. Using historic photos and videos, animations, and music, the three digital installations follow the evolution of the Rolling Stones' music, from their earliest days playing American blues music to creating new sounds that helped define rock and roll for generations. No matter if you are a longtime fan of the Stones or just hearing them for the first time – you will discover something new about their music and learn why they earned the title of "the world's greatest rock and roll band.”
Throughout the exhibition’s run, the Museum will host a range of freepublic programs that explore the significance and legacy of the Rolling Stones, including interviews, films, and special lectures. For more information please visit www.rockhall.com.
