Assembled with the full cooperation of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, the wide ranging "Exhibitionism" Rolling Stones exhibit that debuted in London last April, will be relocating to Industria Superstudio in New York's West Village on November 12th. the attraction incorporates a massive collection of memorabilia, including more than 500 previously unseen artifacts — various instruments, original posters and album art, handwritten lyrics, personal diaries and correspondence, costumes and stage props. We can only hope the show hits the Southland next Spring as the band begins their next American tour!
