‘You can’t always get what you want’ sang Mick Jagger – but you can if you’re a Rolling Stones fan who wants a magical day combining a mini-bus tour of iconic sites illustrating over 50 years of the band’s London history, a meal at Bill Wyman’s ‘Sticky Fingers’ and entry to the fantastic ‘Exhibitionism’ collection of Stones memorabilia and artwork at the Saatchi Galley.
You begin your day at 09.00 in the company of an expert Rolling Stones history guide who, over the following 3 hours and with suitable musical soundtrack, will enthral you with stories from the Stones history as you visit over 50 sites and locations having significance for Jumping Jack Flash & friends. In the bohemian neighbourhood of Soho there’s Denmark Street’s Regent Sound Studios, site of the first Stones recording; the Marquee Club where they had their earliest performances; the Bricklayers pub where Charlie signed up, and the Marlborough Street magistrates court where Keith appeared to defend a notorious drug bust. Later we tour the neighbourhoods of Notting Hill, Marylebone, Earls Court and Chelsea where you’ll see various homes lived in by the band either together or individually, including the infamous Edith Grove apartment, Brain Jones first London addresses, and the luxury riverside houses of Mick, Keith and Ronnie. We visit seminal show sites like the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. You’ll see where some of their most famed recordings were made including the IBC studio site, Koko (BBC sessions) and Island Basing Street Studios.
We include where famed film and video were made, see where album cover photographs and famous publicity were taken and link lyrics to locations. After lunch at Sticky Fingers, where you’ll have the opportunity of seeing some rare Stones memorabilia, we’ll tour the Kings Road, heart of the ‘Swinging 60s’ and finish our morning tour outside the Saatchi Gallery.
Our Stones tour takes visitors ‘behind the scene’ showing you parts of London not normally visited by the average tourist. It’s a day to remember and your Stones records will never sound the same again!
EXHIBITIONISM is the most comprehensive and immersive insight into a group described by critics as ‘The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band’, taking over nine themed galleries spread across two entire floors at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London.
As well as over five hundred Rolling Stones important and unseen artefacts from the band’s personal archives, the exhibition takes the public through the band’s fascinating fifty year history, embracing all aspects of art & design, film, video, fashion, performance, and rare sound archives. At the heart of the exhibition is of course the Stones’ musical heritage that took the group from being a hard working London blues band in the early 1960’s to becoming inspirational cultural icons adored by millions
