The Rolling Stones band decided to mark their 50th anniversary by creating a special exhibition which opened on the 13th of July (2012) at Somerset House, London. This is more than just an ordinary exhibition because it covers the half of the century. It is full of never-seen-before backstage photos and other interesting things. It is really great event for Rolling Stones fans, old and young.
The London’s exhibition covers the entire career of Mick Jagger and the folk from the very beginning: how the wrote music, how they recorded album and how they toured. During 50 years the Rolling Stones band produced 60 albums (studio and live) and recorded over 100 singles. The exhibition exposes 70 prints of the band: contact sheets, studio sessions, outtakes and reportage photography.
Every visitor of the Rolling Stones exhibition in London will have a rare chance to see different types of photos which document the growth of the band. There are lots of photos taken at small blues pubs and large stadium and the majority of which are photos which were not publicly displayed before.
Finally, the exhibition is FREE! So you can buy a ticket to London and see the history of the Rolling Stones band with your own eyes.
