The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s Annual Music Masters is a terrific program that pays tribute to an inductee. Slated to take place Oct. 21-Oct. 26, this year’s event will honor the Rolling Stones. Artists slated to participate in the Oct. 26 tribute concert include: Ian McLagan, Lisa Fischer, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys, Steve Madaio, Ivan Neville, Waddy Wachtel and Willie Weeks to perform. Additional artists will be announced closer to the date.
“The Museum is proud to be honoring the Rolling Stones during their 50th anniversary year,” said Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in a Rock Hall press release. “In addition to our blockbuster exhibit, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world, we will take this opportunity to dig deeper into the story of this groundbreaking band that challenged and changed the face of rock and roll.”
Multi-instrumentalist and producer Steve Jordan will lead the tribute concert’s all-star house band. The series begins on Oct. 21 with interviews, films and panels and concludes with the Oct. 26 concert at the State Theatre.
