The Rolling Stones Exhibition to Open in Tokyo on March 15

26.February.2019 | MUSIC / SPOT

An exhibition is set to take open at TOC Gotanda Messe in Tokyo on March 15, 2019 to celebrate at the 50+ year history of English rock band The Rolling Stones.

The exhibition has been taking place across the major cities of the world since April 2016 where it began at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Produced by the band themselves, the exhibition features an exhibition of art, film, instruments, photographs, outfits, performance footage, archived footage and more. It’s a must-visit for fans of the band wishing to see their unrivalled influenced over the past 55 years since forming.

The exhibition offers an exclusive look into the band’s career from back when they lived together in a small flat up to selling out venues across the world. This includes never-before-seen archive footage.

Mick Jagger:
“We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale. It’s not going to be like walking into a museum. It’s going to be an event, an experience. It’s about a sense of the Rolling Stones– it’s something we want people to go away talking about it.”

 

Keith Richards:
“While this is about the Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about us. It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a group like us, and it’s this, as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that should make the exhibition unforgettable.”

Japanese guitarist Chat, Sheena & The Rokkets guitarist and vocalist Makoto Ayukawa, and drummer and actress Kavka Shishido have also been appointed official ambassadors of the exhibition.
