Last week my dad came to London for his “traditional” half-yearly visit 😉 The first couple of days I had to work, so we only met in the evenings to see the historically first musical ever, Show Boat (which was great!) and to go out for dinner.
But Friday I was finally free and it was our main tourism day; we squeezed as much as we could out/into the day and it was great!
We went had breakfast in Soho, visited the Rolling Stones exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, lunched picknick-style in Green Park, rode the Emirates Airline across the Thames, had coffee in the O2 arena, walked around Canary Wharf and finished the day with a Jack the Ripper walking tour and a pint in the pub – and yes, we did all that in one single day.
I know, I know, all that sounds amazing, but believe me, EXHIBITIONISM was clearly the highlight of the day.
It shows the history and sheer massive-ness of the band and the phenomenon it became, let’s you participate in their recording sessions, shows the developing process of album covers, music videos and stage designs, it empties the tour wardrobes of Mick and Keith, displays unseen personal objects and eventually you end up “live on stage with the band”. Like I said: simply spectacular!
And the nicest thing of all was to enjoy all that with my dad, who is slightly music-crazy and simply the best!
