Pink Floyd Exhibit Expected To Smash U.K. Museum's Attendance Record
U.K.'s venerable design and art museum, the Victoria & Albert – known colloquially as the V&A – has a new contender for most-attended exhibit in its 100-plus-year history.
The gallery announced today that they will be extending the run dates for Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains for an additional two weeks, with the exhibit now scheduled to remain open until Oct. 15 of this year. To date, the exhibit has been seen by over 300,000 museum patrons, meaning it is fully expected to surpass the previous attendance record of 311,000 set by David Bowie Is…, a retrospective on the titular singer that ran in 2013.
Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains is being billed as "a spectacular and unparalleled audio-visual journey through Pink Floyd's unique and extraordinary world, chronicling the music, design and staging of the band, from their debut in the 1960s through the present day."
