Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction is the Museum’s first ever major exhibition capturing the band’s legendary career spanning more than 50 years. It includes personal items and extraordinary collections that have never been seen before by the public. The exhibit will be open till March 2014.
“The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock and roll,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “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 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum presents Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction is a comprehensive retrospective exhibit that chronicles the band from the mid-1960s until today. The exhibit, which takes up two-and-a-half floors of the Museum, celebrates the Rolling Stones’ incredible contribution to popular music from their earliest days playing small clubs, to their era-defining recordings such as “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” “It’s Only Rock And Roll” and sold-out global tours. Through the use of artifacts, film, text and interactive technology, generations of music fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with rare items from nearly every aspect of the Stones’ astonishing five decades at the top.
Throughout the exhibition’s run, the Museum will host a range of free public programs that explore the significance and legacy of the Rolling Stones, including interviews, films and special lectures.
For the first time, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has launched a fan-generated interactive exhibition, inviting people from all over the world to share their photos of memorabilia, artwork, Rolling Stones concerts and more that will populate a multimedia display in the Museum's Rolling Stones exhibit as well as online.
