Pink Floyd Announce New Exhibition At The Victoria & Albert Museum in London
Yesterday morning (August 31), the Victoria & Albert Museum in London announced a major retrospective of the English prog-rock band, which will mark 50 years since the release of their debut single 'Arnold Layne' in spring 1967.
'The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains' will be an 'immersive, multi-sensory and theatrical journey' through the band's history, from their beginnings in 1960s London to the present day.
The exhibition will celebrate the band's influential composition, staging, design, film, music technology and photography, featuring set pieces from some of Pink Floyd's iconic album covers and stage performances as well as more than 350 objects and artefacts, some of which have never been seen before by the public.
Visitors will also witness never-before-seen concert footage and a 'custom-designed laser light show’.
The exhibition will open on 13 May 2017 and run for 20 weeks. Pre-order here your Tickets for 'The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains.

The official statement: Evolve Devolve, the Italian promoters of “The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains”, have announced today that the exhibition, due to take place from September 19th in Milan, has now been cancelled because the necessary conditions have not occurred in order to make it happen within the time frame available at the Fabbrica del Vapore. (These conditions have nothing to do with Milan’s Municipality).
