It will start life in London's Saatchi Gallery.
The Rolling Stones are set to get their own career-spanning exhibition and, considering they've been doing the rock 'n' roll for over half a century now, there will be plenty to put on display.
So much, in fact, that Exhibitionism will be the largest of its kind, with sources saying it will be 10 times bigger than David Bowie's very successful V&A exhibition.
Opening in the Saatchi Gallery, London, from April, it will encompass nine theme galleries and two floors.
You can expect an interactive tour that brings together rare audio, instruments, artwork, personal diaries, stageware and much more.
After spending three months in Chelsea (close to the flat Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and Keith Richards shared in the early '60s), it will then go on a four year world tour.
Mick Jagger said: “We've been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale. The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.”
Keith Richards commented: “While this is about the Rolling Stones, it's not necessarily only just about the members of the band. 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 really interesting.”
Charlie Watts added: "It’s hard to believe that it's more than fifty years since we began and it is wonderful to look back to the start of our careers and bring everything up to date at this exhibition.’’
