by Petra Mann, Liverpool Echo
MADONNA and Mick Jagger will be in Liverpool next week.
They join a host of glittering stars in a new exhibition at the city's Tate gallery.
The Pin-Ups exhibition includes David Bowie, Cliff Richard and Naomi Campbell. It includes snaps by the late Linda McCartney on show for the first time since
The Tate were given them by private collectors in 1975.
The photographs were unearthed in the Tate files by the show's co-curator Vicky Charnock. She said: "Linda had started to do photographic work on the Town and Country magazine in New York.
"The story goes that she was working as an administrative assistant when an invitation came in for a press launch involving the Rolling Stones.
"She took the invitation herself and went along where she photographed Mick Jagger and Brian Jones."
It was a move that found her photographing the famous and even marrying one of them, Paul McCartney.
The Pin-Up show is sub-titled Glamour and Celebrity Since the Sixties and starts with British and American Pop Art and today's Brit Art.
Vicky added: "Our exhibition is in three sections, film stars, pop stars and models.
"These are the areas most popular with artists."
Pin-Up opens on Tuesday, March 26, and its run has already been extended until next week.
