Tickets for the New York edition of Exhibitionism go on sale to the general public on September 14 at 10 a.m. ET, and will be available at StonesExhibitionism.com. American Express Card members will be able to purchase presale tickets starting Tuesday, August 30, at 10 a.m. ET.

Exhibitionism was put together with the full cooperation of Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood. The attraction features nine themed areas that incorporate a massive collection of memorabilia, including more than 500 previously unseen artifacts. Items on display include various instruments, original posters and album art, handwritten lyrics, personal diaries and correspondence, costumes, and stage props.
The exhibit also includes unheard audio tracks, rare video clips, film presentations and more. Among the films are a new movie that highlights some of the key points in The Rolling Stones' career, and a 3-D flick that gives viewers a band's-eye view of one of their shows.

BBC News reports that the demo was purchased by an unknown buyer on Saturday at the Liverpool Beatles Auction, which was held at the Unity Theatre in the Fab Four's hometown.
The recording recently was rediscovered by Black's nephew, Simon White, included in a collection of acetates by Cilla, who died in August 2015 at the age of 72. McCartney and his Beatles band mate John Lennon wrote the tune especially for Black, who scored a #7 hit in the U.K. with it.
White believes his aunt gave the acetate to his dad, Cilla's brother, sometime during the mid-'60s. The acetate was rediscovered when Simon recently brought a stack of 21 discs that he thought were all Cilla's demos to The Beatles Shop memorabilia store in Liverpool to be appraised.
White listened to the demos with The Beatles Shop's manager, Stephen Bailey, who told the BBC, "We got to the last one and, as soon as I heard it, I thought, 'Oh God, that's not Cilla Black, it's Paul McCartney'…I was shaking with excitement and speechless."
Bailey added, "Apart from a few crackles, which you get with acetates, the quality is fine. It's a wonderful recording…I can't think of finding anything better unless I discover there is a sixth Beatle."
Including fees, the acetate's buyer paid a total of 21,060 pounds, or about $27,600, for the disc. You can listen to a 20-second clip of the tune at BeatlesAuction.co.uk.
Art Zelin/Getty ImagesFor the ninth time since his incarceration for the December 8, 1980 murder of John Lennon, Mark David Chapman has been denied parole.
The New York State Board of Parole announced its decision on Monday following an interview this past Wednesday with the 61-year-old Chapman, held at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York.
The board members noted in their decision, "In spite of many favorable factors, we find all to be outweighed by the premeditated and celebrity-seeking nature of the crime. From our interview and review of your records, we find that your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate that seriousness of the crime as to undermine respect for the law. Accordingly, we deny your release to supervision in the community."
The parole board also explained that in denying Chapman's request, it considered such factors as his efforts to rehabilitate and educate himself, his disciplinary record, his accomplishments while incarcerated, and his lack of prior criminal history.
Chapman was sentenced in 1981 to 20 years to life for Lennon's murder and was first eligible for parole on December 4, 2000. His next parole hearing is scheduled for August 2018.

Credit: Henry Diltz"The City," from David Crosby's forthcoming solo album, Lighthouse, has premiered on YouTube. The tune, which the folk-rock legend co-wrote with his main Lighthouse collaborator and co-producer, Michael League of the modern-jazz collective Snarky Puppy, pays tribute to that tough and multifaceted metropolis of New York City.
"Michael said, 'I want to write a song about New York City' -- which we both love -- 'as a woman,'" recalls Crosby. "And he said, 'Give me images.'"
In response, David says he came up with, "Damaged and lean, kind of mean, got a weird sense of humor."
In the tune's chorus, Crosby sings, "Like a wind, like a flame/She plays by the rules of her own game/She can't lose, you can't win/All you can do is your best to stay in."
"The City" combines acoustic folk elements with a funky, driving rhythm, while also showcasing some layered harmony vocals. It features Crosby on vocals, acoustic guitar and guitar percussion, while League contributes vocals; bass; and acoustic, baritone acoustic and electric guitars. Snarky Puppy keyboardist Cory Henry also lends his talents to the track.
Lighthouse will be released October 21. Crosby, meanwhile, recently launched a North American solo tour that's mapped out through a September 15 concert in Vancouver, Canada. Check out his upcoming dates at DavidCrosby.com.
Columbia RecordsDavidBowie's work was posthumously honored Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards.
His video for "Blackstar" was a winner in the Best Art Direction category. The late rocker was also nominated in the Best Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Editing categories for his "Lazarus" clip, but lost all three to Beyoncé's "Formation."
Coldplay was also a winner in the professional categories. Their "Up&Up" video claimed the prize for Best Visual Effects.
Twenty One Pilots took the Best Rock Video category for "Heathens." The other nominees in the category were Coldplay's "Adventure of a Lifetime," Panic! at the Disco's "Victorious," Fall Out Boy's "Irresistible" with Demi Lovato, and All Time Low's "Missing You."
The VMAs were held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Bettman/Getty ImagesToday marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' final official concert, which took place August 29, 1966, at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Drained by the grind of touring and the craziness it entailed, the Fab Four had decided to retire from the road after their 1966 North American summer trek to focus on studio work and other interests.
One of the acts opening for The Beatles during the tour, including the Candlestick Park show, was the garage-rock band The Remains. Remains frontman Barry Tashian recalls that the noise made by the ardent Fab Four fans generally made it difficult to hear anything during the performances.
"The [crowd] sounded like a jet or a rocket ship taking off. Just this tremendous rush of air," Tashian tells ABC Radio. "It just was deafening."
Barry also remembers that there were some quiet moments during The Beatles' shows where their talent as a live outfit shone through.
"No doubt about it, they were just a real good bar band kind of thing," he explains to ABC Radio.
Meanwhile, Tashian says he had no clue that the Candlestick Park concert was to be The Beatles' last, although he was aware that the grind of touring was weighing on the band.
"I could tell that they wanted to…get it done and go home," Barry maintains. "As far as never touring again, that's another story."
The Beatles played 11 songs at Candlestick Park, including such newer tunes as "Day Tripper," "Paperback Writer" and "Yesterday," plus some select rock 'n' roll covers. According to BeatlesBible.com, tickets cost $6.50 and $4.50.
The only public concert the Fab Four played after the Candlestick concert was their famous unannounced show on the rooftop of the band's Apple headquarters in London on January 30, 1969.
Here's the set list of The Beatles' Candlestick Park concert:
"Rock and Roll Music" "She's a Woman" "If I Needed Someone" "Day Tripper" "Baby's in Black" "I Feel Fine" "Yesterday" "I Wanna Be Your Man" "Nowhere Man" "Paperback Writer" "Long Tall Sally"
VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty ImagesJohnFogerty is among the many artists paying tribute to popular Mexican singer-songwriter JuanGabriel, who died Sunday at the age of 66.
Fogerty said in a statement that he was interested in collaborating with Gabriel, a six-time Grammy nominee who recorded a cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” earlier this year.
"My heart is heavy and very sad today for Juan Gabriel has passed away," Fogerty said in a statement Sunday. "Juan is a legend in the world of Latin Music and someone that I truly admire. He has written and recorded hundreds of beautiful songs and recently had recorded a wonderful version of my song 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain' that I love very much.
"We had talked about performing this song together and I was looking forward to a new friendship with this amazingly talented man," Fogerty added.
Gabriel's hits included "Hasta Que Te Conoci" ("Until I Met You"), "Amor Eterno" ("Eternal Love") and "Querida" ("Dear").
He performed at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Friday night and had been scheduled to perform in El Paso, Texas, Sunday night.
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted Sunday, "I regret the death of Juan Gabriel, one of the great musical icons of our country. My condolences to his relatives and friends."

Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp and Lindsey Buckingham are among the artists featured on the official soundtrack to the Showtime series Roadies, which was just released digitally and will be available for purchase as a physical album on Friday, September 2. The record is made up almost entirely of new live performances by various artists, many of whom made cameo appearances on the show.
Music from the Showtime Original Series Roadies includes Vedder singing the 2003 Pearl Jam rarity "Man of the Hour," Buckingham performing his 1987 Fleetwood Mac hit "Big Love," Mellencamp singing his 2008 song "Longest Days" and Browne teaming up with alt-pop duo Lucius and Americana guitarist Greg Leisz for a rendition of Little Feat's "Willin'."
Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, My Morning Jacket, Robyn Hitchcock and Gary Clark Jr.
Roadies creator, writer and director Cameron Crowe explains, "Great care was taken that the songs chosen for each artist have another meaning, a thread to our story or characters. The only rule was: no lip-syncing to playback. Not even to live versions recorded in a previous take. These would be authentic live performances. Real performances. That's where the magic happens, for an audience and even a crew."
The finale of Roadies' debut season airs Sunday, August 28, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The episode will feature appearances by Browne, Vedder, Hitchcock, Lucius, Clark Jr., My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James and more.
Roadies, which stars Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino and Imogen Poots, takes a humorous look at a group of music-loving roadies and their lives working behind-the-scenes in the concert industry.
Here is the full track list of the Roadies soundtrack:
"I Wish I Was Sober (Roadies Remix)" -- Frightened Rabbit featuring Mike McCready "Are You Satisfied?"

Epic RecordsPearl Jam will be celebrating a double anniversary today, as both Ten and No Code were released on August 27, albeit five years apart. Ten, Pearl Jam's debut album, turns 25, while No Code, originally released in 1996, turns 20.
Upon its original release in 1991, Ten didn't sell too well. But by the summer of 1992, as the grunge movement continued to explode, the album reached number two on the Billboard 200. Ten has since sold 13 million copies in the U.S., and has been certified diamond.
Ten also boasts some of Pearl Jam's best-known singles, including "Even Flow," "Alive" and the controversial "Jeremy." The video for "Jeremy," which was awarded Video of the Year at the 1993 MTV VMAs, shows a young student killing himself in front of his classmates.
Meanwhile, No Code, Pearl Jam's fourth studio album, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, but did not sustain a strong sales presence, as many fans and critics found it to be inconsistent. While it did reach one million in U.S. sales, No Code was the first Pearl Jam record to not receive multi-platinum certification.
Additionally, Pearl Jam did not tour a lot in support of No Code, as the band was still embroiled in their infamous boycott against Ticketmaster in protest of the ticket vendor's service charges.
Still, No Code produced big singles in "Who You Are" and "Hail Hail." While the album is not a mainstream favorite, it did illustrate where Pearl Jam was willing to go with their sound as the grunge era was ending.
Credit: Ross HalfinThe "visual history" of Metallica's seminal 1986 album Master of Puppets will be told in the forthcoming photo book Metallica: Back to the Front. In a new video for Rolling Stone, the members of the legendary metal band share their reflections on the album.
"I really feel that a lot of the music on Master of Puppets, we pulled it out of a deep place," says guitarist Kirk Hammett in the clip. "A lot of it, it's just so emotional, from the music to the lyrics to the guitar solos to even the arrangements. It's so dramatic."
Adds frontman James Hetfield, "It was still rebellious. Back then it was still the four of us in a van out to conquer the world."
Master of Puppets celebrated its 30th anniversary this past spring, and, as Hammett points out, the album "never went away."
"It still has not and there are no signs of it going away at all," he says.
Metallica: Back to the Front hits bookshelves on September 13. Meanwhile, Metallica's new album, Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, will be released November 18.
Credit: Jimmy HubbardAnthrax has shared the video for their song "Monster at the End." The comic book-style visual finds a man gearing up to confront the eponymous monster, which isn't quite what he's expecting. To find out who the real monster at the end is, you can watch the video now at Fangoria.com.
The video, directed by Jack Bennett, uses stop-motion and rotoscoping animation to pay tribute to the feel of comic books and classic horror movies.
"We used a lot of stop-motion effects as well as other special and visual effects in the same way as was done in the original Exorcist film," says Bennett. "We even added a little bit of grain, some dust and some scratches just to give it that analog feel."
"Monster at the End" is a track from Anthrax's latest album, For All Kings. The band will be touring this fall in support of For All Kings alongside Slayer.

Credit: Danny ClinchBruce Springsteen and the E Street Band are two shows through a three-concert engagement at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and so far, the run of dates has been one for the record books.
According to the respected Springsteen fan site Backstreets.com, the Boss' gig on Thursday night clocked in at just under four hours, making it the longest one he's ever played in the U.S.
The previous longest? That took place on Tuesday, at the first of Bruce's scheduled MetLife Stadium concerts, which ran three hours and 52 minutes. Thursday, Springsteen and the E Street Band played a career-spanning 33-song set that included a guest appearance by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on three tunes. During the show, Bruce dedicated "My City of Ruins" to the earthquake victims in Italy.
In addition, NJ.com reports Bruce acknowledged that the Thursday was "Born to Run birthday day" -- that is, the 41st anniversary of the classic album's release. During the concert's finale, "Jersey Girl," Springsteen brought a couple who just got engaged at the show onto the stage.
Speaking of birthdays, Bruce's marathon feat is even more impressive when you consider he turns 67 September 23.
Springsteen and the E Street Band's third MetLife Stadium concert is scheduled for this Tuesday, August 30, although they'll perform first at Chicago's United Center on Sunday. Bruce's The River Tour 2016 is scheduled wind down on September 14 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Incidentally, Springsteen longest concert of all time, according to Backstreets.com, happened on July 31, 2012, in Helsinki, Finland. That one ran four hours and five minutes.

Les Brers also have four previously reported gigs in New England next month. The band's most recent performance was August 11 at the Allman Brothers-curated Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The group's members joined forces with String Cheese Incident at the event to create a one-off collective dubbed Allman Brothers Family Incident.
The Les Brers lineup features founding Allman Brothers Band drummers Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, longtime Allmans bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones, and ex-Allman Brothers guitarist Jack Pierson. The group also includes frequent ABB guest keyboardist Bruce Katz, veteran guitarist Pat Bergeson and singer Lamar Williams Jr., whose late father played bass with the Allmans during the 1970s.
The band takes its name from "Les Brers in A Minor," a song featured on The Allmans Brothers' classic 1972 album, Eat a Peach.

Courtesy of MSO PRSince founding Eagles singer/guitarist Glenn Frey's death this past January, the band's remaining members have focused on various other musical endeavors. Bassist Timothy B. Schmit recently announced plans to release a new solo album called Leap of Faith in September, and a song from the record titled "Red Dirt Road" has now premiered on the Rolling Stone Country website.
Schmit tells the magazine that the track's title is a reference to the soil found on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
"There's some rich, deep soil there," he explains. "You have a good chance of growing a plumeria tree by just sticking a branch of a plumeria into the ground. It's unbelievable. That was the motivation."
The 68-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer adds that the song itself is "about trying to enjoy your life. You can go about your daily business and see it from sunup to sundown -- and see it in the best light possible, too -- and then just enjoy yourself."
Musically, "Red Dirt Road" boasts elements of various Americana genres, including traditional folk, bluegrass and Cajun, and features accordion played by famed Brian Wilson collaborator Van Dyke Parks.
Leap of Faith, a follow-up to Schmit's 2009 album Expando, will be released on September 23.

Atlantic/Swan SongThe Wall Street Journal's website is hosting an exclusive stream of a rare 1969 Led Zeppelin song called "Sunshine Woman" that will be featured on the upcoming compilation The Complete BBC Sessions, which will be released on September 16. The track is one of eight previously unreleased tunes included on the record, which is an expanded version of the band's 1997 BBC Sessions collection.
"Sunshine Woman" was recorded in London on March 16, 1969, and aired the following month on the BBC show World Service. The original BBC tape on which the track appeared was lost, but a private recording that emerged in the late 1990s serves as the source for the version featured on The Complete BBC Sessions.
The song, which has never appeared on any Led Zeppelin studio album, features wailing vocals and some bluesy harmonica from Robert Plant, along with pounding piano and a fiery Jimmy Page guitar solo.
The Complete BBC Sessions will be available in a variety of configurations, including a three-CD set, a five-LP package, a digital download and a super deluxe edition featuring both the three-CD and five-LP collections.
