Lol. Can't imagine Bill isn't involved in some way. I sure hope so in any case.

Someone mentioned here that nearly all of the formerly band memorabilia in Bill's 'Sticky Fingers Cafe' has gone - maybe the exhibition was the reason .... [www.iorr.org] .

No mention of Bill, huh? He's the real archive Stone, right? Maybe they'll piss him off and he'll assemble a competing exhibit. "Here's one of Keith's old spoons...."

Maybe he'll dip Mick in wax and stick him in a glass case... spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

I'm excited about any exhibition of Stones "stuff."

But...is this for real?

Sorry if anyone here is working on the effort. But from what's apparent at this links and clicking around (or attempting to--it's quite klugy), doesn't the site and exhibition--in concept and preliminary interaction and visual design--seem, well...a little...trashy? as in track-suit-bum-crack-big-stomach-showing-wore-my-slippers-to-Walmart-hair-pulling-in-the-shampoo-aisle trashy? And also very 2006. Not to mention about a half micron deep.

If someone from Rolling Stones Corp would like a hand with this - toward creating a super compelling, immersive, interactive, multiplemedia transplatform experience that also has even a smidge of substance, dignity, and credibility, please contact me.

The Stones deserve better.

I'm surprised Charlotte Watts would have allowed things to get this far.

What's here is, in now way, reflective of men of wealth and taste winking smiley

Love that something is happening, but let's do much better. It could be great!

I know some relevant exhibition models that could be adapted and...Stones have all the money in the world to do something innovative and, yes, fun, but not vulgar and dumm--worthy of the Stones while they're still here, as well as worthy in terms of legacy, this exhibition not being remembered as silly clownishness.

Sorry to be blunt -- but it needs to be said now before design/development goes too far.

Right, message received loud and clear.


A couple of questions:

1) Could I enquire what expertise, qualifications and experience you have to bring to the table?

2) You use an abbreviated form of the pronoun 'us'. Who are you collectively referring to?

.....

Olly.

The exhibition looks good, but if I never see that nasty tacky pink logo again it will be too soon.

I agree with Green Lady, I am already sick of the nasty tacky neon crotch logo. Not super thrilled with this as a fan.

I trust you, swiss.
Maybe you can tweet this to @rollingstones or Charlotte? (I can do it for you if you don't have a account)
Fastest way to get in touch with them.
Send some examples from your own work.

Classic example of an IORR member not recognising that they are merely a customer for whatever the stones decide to put out. Can just imagine Mick saying "hold on guys, scrap everything, Swiss from IORRs gonna fix it all for us" .

And the laughter went on for years..............

I thought that the Somerset House exhibition was small but great. I'm intrigued by this and hope it will scale previous heights. I will part with £19 to enjoy it first hand.

In my opinion "Exhibitionism" will be the "Concept" of a possible European Tour in Spring/Summer 2016 with a possible new studio album with the same or almost the same title...Tour/Exhibition/new album:a Biggest Bang!!!

At present you can only buy a VIP ticket on the presale if you live in Esssex!!!!

The payment page is not working correctly. You need to enter County/Region to have your payment processed - but the only option is Essex. angry smileyangry smiley

Hope they sort this mess out soon. Anyone know how to contact them?

Yep - Essex was the only option in the drop-down menu and the purchase could not be completed without specifying that option. DOH... WTF?! I just assume and hope that the postcode overrides the county when it comes to delivery...

I submitted the payment details and........'OOPS, SOMETHING'S GONE WRONG'....please try again. GRRRRR!

There is also a £3 charge in addition to cover price. A weekend ticket is £2 more expensive than a weekday ticket.

Looks like they are 'print at home' tickets anyway so I guess it doesn't matter.

There's no link to pre-sale tickets I can see, although the ticket page is broken at the moment. It says tickets go on sale 10/07/15.
