Northern Stones fans will have another opportunity to see ‘Unzipped’
The exhibition ‘The Rolling Stones Unzipped’ will return to the Groninger Museum in 2023 following a meeting between director Andreas Blühm and the management of The Rolling Stones. An exact date is not yet known, reports the GIC.
The exhibition opened its doors in November last year, but had to close a month later due to the second Coronavirus lockdown. Initially, Unzipped was supposed to last until the end of February, but that was later extended to March 28, and again to April 18. Extending the exhibition longer has not been possible because the exhibition is to be made available in Marseille from June.
Both the bands management and members appreciate the efforts of the museum and are disappointed that the pandemic prevented a major public success. “We are sorry to leave Groningen where we felt very much at home. Now we are happy to announce that we will return soon!”, says a press statement.
Director Andreas Blühm: “It has never happened that an exhibition has traveled to the same museum twice, but these times call for original solutions. It is a shame that more people could not enjoy Unzipped and we look forward to the re-opening in 2023. ”
The Rolling Stones – Unzipped is the first ever international exhibition about the world famous rock band. Using more than 400 original objects from the band’s personal archive, the exhibition provides an impressive look behind the scenes of the Stones’ past.
