The Rolling Stones: 50 Exhibition, Somerset House, London

The Rolling Stones went on stage at the Marquee Club in London’s Oxford Street on the 12th July 1962. A phenomenal 50 years later, and to celebrate this milestone, Somerset House are presenting a free photographic exhibition documenting the last half-century and looking back at their astounding career. The exhibition coincides with the release of the book by the same name, published by Thames & Hudson.

With privileged access to a wealth of unseen and rare material, this one-off exhibition includes over seventy prints ranging from reportage photography, live concert and studio session images, to contact sheets, negative strips and outtakes from every period of the band’s history – from performing in the smallest blues clubs to the biggest stadium tours of all time.
