Vegas, baby! The Rolling Stones’ first major exhibition, Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, will have a limited exclusive U.S. west coast engagement at The Palazzo Las Vegas through January 31, 2018. (It opened Sept. 23.)

Exhibitionism includes 500 rare artifacts and memorabilia spanning the band’s 54-year career and continued influence on fashion, film and art. It gives visitors a look back at the high points of the band’s career through a new film, with a high-octane soundtrack. It then steps back into the early days, to a recreation of the Edith Grove flat just off the King’s Road in London’s Chelsea neighborhood that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones shared in 1962.

There is a recreation of a Stones’ recording studio complete with their original instruments, plus a “backstage” area to give fans a sense of what it truly feels like just before the band heads out on stage. A guitar gallery brings together examples of some of their prized instruments, including a rosewood Fender Telecaster and a Maton that Richards played on Let It Bleed, which famously disintegrated as he reached the final notes of “Gimme Shelter.”

When it opened in London, The Daily Telegraph called it “The most magnificent multi-sensory barrage of Stones ‘stuff’ you’re ever likely to encounter.” The Guardian exclaimed it as “genuinely jaw-dropping” with London’s Daily Mail calling it “The most comprehensive and immersive insight into the band’s fascinating 50-year history.” Best Classic Bands saw it in New York and it is, indeed, truly exceptional.
