Tickets for the Canadian debut of the highly anticipated exhibition are on sale today at 9:00am EST
Kitchener, ON | November 4, 2020 — With ticket sales officially on sale today at 9:00am EST at www.unzippedkw.ca, music, arts and culture lovers and fans of The Rolling Stones from across Southwestern Ontario and Canada can expect to have exclusive access to the band’s nearly sixty-year history when they visit UNZIPPED. The Rolling Stones | UNZIPPED delivered by DHL is a unique immersive experience and will premiere at THEMUSEUM as the exhibition’s Canadian debut in the fall of 2021.
Celebrating The Stones’ artistic collaborations in music, art and design, UNZIPPED is the first international exhibition devoted to the world famous rock band. With hundreds of unique artefacts and memorabilia forming a multimedia exhibition, some on loan from the Stones’ private collection, UNZIPPED offers a comprehensive and engaging multimedia experience that will make Southwestern Ontario a cultural destination for many.
Attracting almost 100,000 visitors annually, THEMUSEUM demonstrated tenacity in the race among other major Canadian cities to secure its largest exhibition to date. Located in the heart of downtown Kitchener, it is the ideal venue to showcase a cultural journey with a rock and roll icon. Next fall, the 10,000 sq. ft. exhibition will transform THEMUSEUM to provide a true backstage pass for visitors of all ages.
THEMUSEUM Members eagerly took advantage of an exclusive ticket pre-sale earlier this week, signaling the excitement fans have for the exhibition.
“It is an exciting time for THEMUSEUM as we pull back the curtain a little bit more and reveal exactly what guests can expect when they step into the world of The Rolling Stones in a way never before imagined,” says David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “Guests will enjoy an immersive
experience that, at its core, celebrates the power of music, art and design. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Following stints in Europe, the United States, and Asia, The Rolling Stones | UNZIPPED will open at THEMUSEUM on November 2, 2021 for a limited run until January 30, 2022.
