Exhibitionism tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, allowing visitors to experience their incredible journey through this immersive exhibit, from their early days living together in a tiny flat, to headlining the biggest stages in the world.

The idea of music and politics going hand in hand was true at the Chicago International Amphitheater, an indoor arena that was located on Chicago’s south side from 1933-1999. The amphitheater was home to both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions five times in the 50s and 60s before The American Tour of 1969 filled the chameleon-like arena with fans screaming for The Stones.

“….history’s first mythic rock and roll tour” -Robert Christgau

This was the first time Mick Taylor ever played in Chicago with The Rolling Stones. The band returned to the Amphitheater in 1972 to play two nights back to back during their 1972 American tour, this time around really living it up like Chicago’s elite and staying at the original Playboy Mansion in the Gold Coast.
