An exhibit of rare photos of the Rolling Stones is opening this week in Chicago.

The timing is perfect for this unique showing. The Rolling Stones kick off their U.S. summer tour later this month in the Windy City.

"A new photo exhibition celebrating the 55th anniversary of The Rolling Stones' historic visit to Chess Records in Chicago will open on June 5 at Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, which is located at the site of the famous blues label's headquarters."

The band has always been a fan of the Blues. It only makes sense on their very first visit to Chicago, they would record at the legendary studio, Chess Records.

That is the focus of this display.

"The exhibit, dubbed "The Rolling Stones at Chess," will feature more than 50 photos capturing the band members at those recording sessions, many of which are previously unseen."

The gallery will be open for viewing June 5th through June 29th, 6pm-10pm each. The price is $15.
