The singer presents the exhibition “Unzipped” which traces the history of the legendary group, from June 10 at the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille.
It is a bit of the 1960s that will be exhibited at the Vélodrome stadium. AT?? From June 10 until September 5, the temple of Marseille football is hosting “Unzipped”, an exhibition dedicated to the Rolling Stones. At the microphone of France Inter Monday, Mick Jagger presented – in French – a retrospective “full of costumes, full of guitars”. Fans will also find a recreation of the band’s famous apartment on Edith Grove Street in London. Album covers and song lyrics will also be on display.
Enough to immerse yourself in the music of the group but also of a whole era, the one during which it reached its peak. Mick Jagger believes that the end of the sixties was “a very ‘sexual’ era”, but “not only”. Some songs were also more “romantic”, even “philosophical”.
But the singer is not for all that the spokesperson for “it was better before”, which would caricature the current era as puritanical, at the antipodes of the unbridled sixties. “Every era is different, it’s hard to make comparisons. In the 1960s and 1970s, you had a lot of tension with people who wanted to maintain a certain morality, a certain way of life, a lot more respect for the rules, says Mick Jagger. Now it’s completely gone. But you have other rules. People say ‘we can’t say what we want anymore’. But in all the ages, there have been a lot of things that you couldn’t say. “
It is this nuanced look at the 1960s that will be exhibited in Marseille. Mick Jagger has some memories in the city. Â € œI did a concert in the 1960s, someone threw an object at me and it hurt my forehead a bit, â € he recalls. So I left the stage for a few minutes, then I came back. It was a very small venue. ”Times have changed a lot as the Stones are now hosted in a big sports arena. The group seems to go through the ages and seduce young audiences, a success that Mick Jagger considers “inexplicable”. The singer of the group enjoys it, and says he is “very lucky to continue to make music and to go on stage”.

The success of the Stones among young people … you just have to listen and see the “artists” of Rap to understand.
