‘When you see artists such as Dylan, The Stones and The Beatles at a time when they were trying to break into the big time, you really appreciate the scale of their subsequent success. I’m immensely proud of what we’re about to share with the world.’

The exhibition will tour in June and include visits to Norwich, Glasgow, Swansea and Cambridge.
