Can’t you hear them knocking? Mick, Keith and the rest of the Rolling Stones will be dancing in the streets all the way to THEMUSEUM in Kitchener next fall.
We might be hoping to see the Stones dancing in the streets next year — something that’s on the books but also up in the air (thank you COVID) — but THEMUSEUM will be hosting UNZIPPED, “a unique immersive experience providing comprehensive insight” into the storied history of one of rock’s biggest, best and most enduring bands.
“I am thrilled that we have confirmed not only the Candian Premier, but the only Canadian stop on the world tour,” says David Marskell, THEMUSEUM’s CEO. “While we have brought world-class exhibitions from Titanic to Warhol here to Kitchener, this will be the largest show to date.”
UNZIPPED is set to roll into town in November 2021 and will “transform” the space “to provide a true backstage pass for any fan.”
“The city of Kitchener is thrilled to be hosting the Rolling Stones exhibition UNZIPPED in downtown Kitchener in the fall of 2021,” says Barry Vrbanovic, Kitchener’s mayor. “An international cultural experience of this caliber will be a key tourist driver in the post COVID-19 period, which will not only further enhance THEMUSEUM’s track record of delivering world-class exhibitions but will also serve to reinvigorate tourism in Southwestern Ontario and Canada.”
The exhibit will include more than 400 artifacts and pieces of memorabilia from The Rolling Stones’ nearly 60-year history, including some pieces from their private collections.
Advance ticket sales begin in November, with exclusive pre-sale opportunities for THEMUSEUM members. The exhibit is slated to open on November 2, 20201 and run through January 30, 2022.
