If you are a fan of the Rolling Stones, you will want to check out "Exhibitionism" at The Palazzo.

The exhibit features more than 500 rare items from the band's vast, private archive. It is the largest touring exhibit of its kind and has already visited the cities of London, New York City and Chicago.

The exhibit, which tells the story of the most influential rock band in the world, features cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, valuable works of art, handwritten lyric books, personal diaries, recordings, unseen film and photos, a screening cinema and an interactive recording studio that all culminate in an exciting and powerful backstage-to-onstage 3D concert experience.

The exhibit was produced by Australian-based iEC Exhibitions! with the full cooperation of Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie. It was curated by New York native Ileen Gallagher.

“We've been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” said Mick. “It’s not going to be like walking into a museum. 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 it.”

“While this is about The Rolling Stones, it's not necessarily only just about us,” said Keith. “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.”

“Exhibitionism is a celebration and thematic exploration of the creative life of a band that has managed both to stay current and stay true to its artistic vision for more than half a century,” said Ileen Gallagher, curator.

The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 31, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Cost is $32.50 general admissioin plus. Discounts available for students, senior citizens, active and retired military, first responders and Nevada residents with ID.
