Pink Floyd's hugely successful 'The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains' is opening in Rome, Italy in 2018.
'The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains' will open in Rome next year.
The high-in-demand exhibit has seen the likes of Madonna, U2 and Guns N' Roses among 400,000 visitors to walk through the doors since it opened at London's Victoria & Albert Museum in May, and will now move to a new home at the Italian city's Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma.
There, it will be updated to include facts about the 'Another Brick In The Wall' group's relationship with the country.
The iconic psychedelic rock band's co-founders Roger Waters and Nick Mason reunited in London back in February for the London launch - which they said they needed to do as they ''might not be around much longer''.
As well as wanting to celebrate the 'Comfortably Numb' rockers' special birthday, drummer Mason, 73, admitted it was important for them to curate the historic artefacts now because none of the surviving members - which also includes 70-year-old guitarist David Gilmour - are getting any younger.
He told BANG Showbiz at the time: ''Well, I think there's a couple of reasons: one is celebrating 50 years, and two is that we're of an age where we might not be around much longer.''
Among the items on display in the 350 separate exhibits is concept art from the planning stages of the band's tours, paintings by original lead singer Syd Barrett, guitars, album art and clothes worn by the band at all stages of their musical journey.
There are also unique pieces of rock 'n' roll memorabilia such as a letter from the helicopter pilot hired to chase the giant inflatable pig, suspended above Battersea Power Station for the cover of 1977 album 'Animals' after it broke free and floated off towards Kent and the actual corporal punishment cane that was used on Waters when he was at school in Cambridge, a formative experience that inspired songs on 'The Wall'.
Visitors to the attraction are welcomed inside through a Bedford van which the first line-up - comprised of Waters, Mason and the late Barrett and keyboard player Rick Wright - used to tour the UK in the mid-60s.
Tickets for the Rome exhibition are on sale now.
