If you listen very carefully to the end of “Gimme Shelter” by The Rolling Stones, you can hear the neck falling off Keith Richards’ guitar. That Maton guitar is part of a six-thousand-square-metre exhibit about the Stones running in London called “Exhibitionism.” The first room is a life-size recreation of the apartment the band members shared in 1962-63, with authentic details down to the smell. One room of the exhibit is dedicated to the lips-and-tongue logo. Another showcases the dress Mick Jagger wore to the 1969 Hyde Park concert and the feather cape he wore when recording “Sympathy for the Devil.” ”Exhibitionism“ runs in London through September 4th, then it goes on international tour.
Steven Tyler has announced a special intimate show to benefit his charitable initiative, Janie’s Fund, which help girls overcome the trauma of abuse and neglect. “Steven Tyler…On a Limb,” which he’s creating with director Brett Ratner, is set for May 2nd at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall. The concert will have Tyler backed by his Nashville-based band Loving Mary, as he shares in-depth stories and insights, while taking fans on a musical journey from his ancestors in Calabria Italy, to his current musical inspiration, Nashville. “I’m digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I’ve never performed quite like this before,” Steven shared. “I’m telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville.” The event will also feature a silent auction, that includes a five-day stay at Tyler’s Hawaiian home, and more. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday.
