The Rolling Stones to Celebrate 50th Anniversary with Free Exhibition in London
The Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary with a free photographic exhibition at Somerset House in London, UK. Set to run from July 13 to August 27, the exhibition will document the last half-century of the band’s career since their debut performance on July 12, 1962 at the Marquee Club in London. Exhibits include over seventy prints ranging from reportage photography, live concert and studio session images, to contact sheets, negative strips and outtakes from every period of the band’s history.
Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to purchase limited edition prints, copies of the book and other merchandise. This exhibition will also coincide with the release of the book by the same name, published by Thames & Hudson.
A statement posted to the band’s website reads:
This is our story of fifty fantastic years. We started out as a blues band playing the clubs and more recently we’ve filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago.
- Mick, Keith, Charlie & Ronnie
