60 years of British rock and pop music

I read that a new visitor attraction charting 60 years of British rock and pop music has opened at the O2 in London.

The BBC reports “The British Music Experience combines cutting-edge displays with memorabilia loaned by stars like Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Oasis. “

Amy Wine-o! What will her memorabilia display be like? A used hypodermic on a velvet cushion in a glass dome perhaps?

Other activities include the chance to Dance the Decades, in which visitors are taught routines ranging from the macarena to voguing by a virtual instructor. (Voguing? Ummm, what?)

“The British Music Experience opens almost exactly a decade after the launch of the National Centre for Popular Music in Sheffield.
That also promised an interactive journey through UK music history, but shut after 16 months after failing to attract enough visitors.” Hmmm, sounds like there's a demand for this then.....
