It’s the largest touring exhibit of its kind and features more than 500 rare items covering the band’s influence on fashion, film, recording, art and design. WBBM’s Lisa Fielding reports.

“There are 65 costumes designed by everyone from Ossie Clark to Tommy Nutter, to Alexander McQueen to L’Wren Scott to Versace,” she said.

And when you’ve been around for more than half a century, there’s plenty to share.

“There’s art and design, posters, album cover art that was designed by Andy Warhol. We have a documentary that’s narrated by Martin Scorcese, who takes you on a little tour of the Rolling Stones on film, stage and set design. We have models of some of the most important stages they’ve created.”

Gallagher says working with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts was the thrill of her life. It’s the first time in history the band has unlocked their vast private archive.

“They were great partners — they were very generous, they were really funny, they don’t take themselves too seriously. They really helped us push the creative envelope.”

Exhibitionism gives visitors a look back into the early days. There’s even a recreation of the Edith Grove flat that Mick, Keith and Brian shared in London in 1962.
