Rolling Stones Unzipped

Rolling Stones fans will LOVE the exhibit of nearly 300 articles at #THEMUSEUM in Kitchener entitled #Unzippedkw In terms of quality, this finely curated collection of Stones photos, equipment, instruments, posters, song and lyric sheets, album art and posters, stage fashion wardrobes and a few other visual treats like a replica recording studio and a realistic reconstruction of their Edith Grove Flat, are laid out in a world class presentation. It fills virtually the entire museum.

I took it all in this week with my son, who has been a big Stones fan all his life. He didn’t have a choice on that. He and I attended their concert in 2006 in Ottawa. We were about 5 rows from the stage. Amazing.

I would check ahead if you’re planning on attending as the end date seems unclear. I believe COVID has had an impact on the actual dates. Fans will not be disappointed.

I took nearly 100 photos. In no particular order, about 60 are displayed here. I hope you enjoy.
