    The Rolling Stones exhibition is coming to Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Thursday.

    The exhibit currently in New York will soon bring 500 "rare" items to Chicago along with an "immersive, 3-D experience." 

    Emanuel was expected to “announce a unique global, musical attraction coming to Chicago,” the mayor’s office said. 

    The exhibit will make its debut at Navy Pier on April 15 and will remain on display through July 30. 

    Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Feb. 24 via stonesexhibitionism.com

    "This world-class exhibit brings full-circle a journey that began more than 50 years ago when a burgeoning British band came to Chicago to record in the same studio as their idols Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Howlin' Wolf," Emanuel said. "Since then we have seen the Rolling Stones return for countless legendary concerts, and in the process become living legends, spreading Chicago's cultural vibrancy throughout the world." 

    The exhibit will feature some of the band's cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, handwritten lyric books, person diaries, recordings, unseen film and photos and more. 

    Some of the pieces are works by Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen and John Pasche, who designed the Stones' iconic tongue logo.
