Thievery Corporation, Michael Franti and More to Play New NYC Venue
Live Nation will open JBL Live at Pier 97 this summer, a new 6,000-capacity venue located just blocks from the recently closed Roseland Ballroom. Among the shows already confirmed for the venue are The Fray (July 9), 311 (July 19), Michael Franti and Spearhead (July 21), Thievery Corporation (August 15) and Robyn and Royksopp (August 20).
Located at New York’s Pier 97 on 57th St. and the West Side Highway, JBL Live marks the second outdoor concert venue created in partnership with NYC’s Hudson River Park. The first of those being Pier 26 in Tribeca, booked by Bowery Presents. Jason Miller, president of Live Nation, told Billboard, “As we close one important chapter in New York history, we’re starting another one, and that’s exciting.”
Tickets to the shows are available via Ticketmaster.
