The Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary celebration is continuing into the new year with an exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. The exhibit opens in May and will run through next year.
The Rock Hall announced Wednesday that The Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction will open during Memorial Day weekend on Friday, May 24. It will include several never-before-seen pieces of memorabilia that the public will get a chance to see before it closes on March 2014.
According to Rolling Stone, the exhibit will take over two and a half floors of the museum and will cover their entire career. Films will be screened and lectures will be free to the public during the exhibit.
“The Rolling Stones are the epitome of rock and roll,” Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “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 group, consisting of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts, began celebrating their 50th anniversary last year to mark their first performance as a group. They performed in London, New Jersey and at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy memorial concert and are rumored to be heading on tour this year. It would be their first worldwide tour since 2007.
They also released a new collection of hits titled GRRR!, which included two new recordings.
