In 1967, the Rolling Stones were in concert at the Salle Vallier in Marseille. The band's leader, Mick Jagger, was injured by an "enthusiastic" spectator who threw his chair at the singer - says rock critic Philippe Manoeuvre. "He didn't hold it against us because he came back to Marseille," says the former editor of Rock&Folk.
Philippe Manoeuvre didn't blame us either, he was in Marseille on Thursday to present the programme of the exhibition dedicated to the Stones, "Unzipped", which will be held this summer at the Velodrome stadium. For the occasion, tickets were put on sale.
For sanitary reasons, visitors will have to book slots in advance, in order to respect a 10m2
capacity per visitor.
From 10 June to 5 September, visits will be open from 10am to 8pm seven days a week, with evening visits on Fridays until 10pm. Prices are €25 for adults, €19 for 12-25s, €15 for 6-11s and children until 5 will be admitted free. Reservations are open at OrangeVelodrome.com. The first 2,000 tickets are being sold at €19.
Marseille is the only French stopover for the travelling exhibition dedicated to the Stones' 55-year career. More than 400 objects that have marked the legendary band will be on display at the Velodrome Stadium.2000m2 of exhibition space
The exhibition will take place on a 2000m2
stage with 13 sub-spaces. The first flat where the band lived in the Chelsea district of London will be on display. Entirely reconstructed, the public will be able to wander through it. But also the studio where the band recorded Sympathy or the devil. The film that Jean-Luc Godard devoted to this recording will be projected behind the studio window, so that you can feel a bit like the sound engineer assisting in the production and evolution of this masterpiece.
The Rolling Stones are also photos, album covers made by the greatest artists such as Andy Warhol, the tongue in cheek whose metamorphoses we will follow, stage costumes or a concert given free of charge in Havana, to be relived in immersion, when all the venues are closed.
According to Martin D'Argenlieu, director of major projects at Olympique de Marseille, "they liked the city because it is the rebel city". Is this what brings us closer to the Stones?
"When you come out of this exhibition you feel closer to them," says Philippe Manoeuvre.Franceinfo.fr
