Exhibitionism, the acclaimed display chronicling the history of the Rolling Stones is coming to Sydney’s new International Convention Centre (ICC) in late 2018.
Supported by Destination NSW it is an exclusive Australian visit for the retrospective of the band’s 50-year career which opened in London in April and travels to New York in November.
The exhibition features nine galleries with more than 500 pieces of memorabilia plus 70 original stage costumes.
“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,” said Mick Jagger.“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.”
“While this is about the Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about us,” Keith Richards said. “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.”

There is no news on whether the Rolling Stones might time a tour to coincide with Exhibitionism’s arrival in Australia.
