Rare treasures from the personal archives of the Rolling Stones collected over 50 years on show for new exhibition


The Rolling Stones' first major exhibition in London is set to shine a new light on the band's remarkable 50-year-history. 

Some of their most iconic costumes will be on display at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea.

Never-seen-before photographs, guitars, original stage designs and rare video footage will also be included in the 'Exhibitionism' retrospective, as well as personal diaries and album artwork. 

The £4million exhibition will be spread over nine galleries, taking over the entire two-storey building.

It will feature more than 500 artefacts from the band's archive, as well as work by collaborators such as Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen and Martin Scorsese. 
The show will also include black and white photographs of the band members when they were just youngsters.

Speaking about the exhibition shortly after it was announced, Mick Jagger, 72, said: 'We've been thinking about it actually for quite a long time.

'Collecting things, thinking about, "Ah this would be good", we'd better save this because we want people to see it.'
