Kitchener residents will get to experience some rock ’n’ roll history when a new Rolling Stones exhibit goes on display at THEMUSEUM next fall.

“I am thrilled that we have confirmed not only the Canadian Premiere, but the only Canadian stop on the world tour,” THEMUSEUM CEO David Marskell said in a statement.

“While we have brought world-class exhibitions from Titanic to Warhol here to Kitchener, this will be the largest show to date.”

The tour is scheduled to open at the Netherlands’ Groninger Museum in November and will make stops in Asia and the U.S. before making its one and only Canadian stop in Kitchener.

“An international cultural experience of this caliber will be a key tourist driver in the post COVID-19 period, which will not only further enhance THEMUSEUM’s track record of delivering world class exhibitions but will also serve to reinvigorate tourism in Southwestern Ontario and Canada.”

THEMUSEUM is putting tickets up for grabs on Nov. 4, almost a year in advance of when the exhibit is scheduled to open on Nov. 2, 2021.
