The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
has just announced plans to launch the Sonic Sessions, a new music showcase. The first concert is slated to take place at 9 p.m. on Friday, January 30, 2015. The UK dance music act Lets Be Friends is slated to perform the inaugural event, which is sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing Company. Blackbird, Thunder St. Clair and 41SE7EN are set to open the show. “This is the first time we’ve ever hosted a live music series on a scale like this,” says Todd Mesek, Vice President of Marketing and Communications of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, in a press release. “We’re highlighting the future of rock as much as we are connecting it to the history we celebrate here, so bringing in exciting, new acts from around the globe to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will really build on the celebratory atmosphere of our anniversary year.”
Performances will take place on the Museum’s Klipsch Audio stage during the winter and on an outdoor stage during warmer months (weather permitting). Tickets are $5.50 and they’ll be available for purchase at the Museum’s box office and online at rockhall.com. Concert tickets will also include admission into the Museum’s Ahmet Ertegun main exhibit hall.
