The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame To Celebrate the Rolling Stones Fifty Years of Satisfaction Memorial Day Weekend
I’ve always considered the Stones the greatest r&r band ever, if for no other reason, longevity. It’s tough to get to the top, and tougher to stay there. The Stones are the only band I know that has achieved both.
Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction will be the Museum’s first ever major exhibition capturing the band’s legendary career spanning more than 50 years. It will include personal items and extraordinary collections that have never been seen before by the public.
Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. says the Rolling Stones are the “epitome of rock and roll.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 takes up two-and-a-half floors of the Museum, will celebrate 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.
