The Hammerstein Ballroom, opened in 1906 by Oscar Hammerstein I, is a two-tiered ballroom located within the Manhattan Center Studios. From 1910, the venue was used for a variety of events aside from Opera, including Vaudeville. It has changed ownership several times, and as a result has been used as a Freemason's temple and a trade union headquarters. The ballroom is currently owned by Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. The venue now also hosts events such as fashion shows, television awards and other special events.

Walk the Moon

July 27, 2016

Expect an evening of infectious indie anthems set to bubbly synth with big oh-oh-oh choruses. One of 2015's biggest breakouts, Walk the Moon, are the glittery feel-good rockers behind 2010's song of the summer 'Anna Sun' and last winters energetic foot-stomper 'Shut up & Dance'. Touring this summer in support of new record 'Talking is Hard', these guys bring a charmingly joyous celebration to the stage that dares you not to get up and dance along!

Perfume

September 3-4, 2016

This Japanese synth-pop, post-Shibuya-kei girl band has stratospheric success in their native Japan since forming in 2000. The band's name was taken from the character found in each of the founding members' names (fragrance). Kashiyuka, A-chan and Nocchi, to give their stage names, are pop icons in Japan and since signing with Universal Music Group in 2012, have expanded their fanbase inside of Asia, thanks to the internet, and their wildly popular touring concerts. Watch out Psy, these girls are gaining on you!

Gavin DeGraw & Andy Grammer

October 13, 2016

Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Natasha Beddingfield and Colbie Colait on tour, Andy Grammer continues to break the pop mould with a a soulful, RnB style that marks his radio-friendly anthems out in the crowd. This fall he'll be joining forces with fellow pop upstart and Grammy nominee Gavin Degraw, a singer songwriter best known for smash hit 'I Don't Want To Be', instantly recognisable as the One Tree Hill theme tune.

Phantogram

October 22, 2016

Phantogram return in 2016 with their third studio album (helpfully titled) Three, and they've got an extensive North American tour to go along with it. Formed of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter, Phantogram's darkly-hued sculpt synth pop that recalls the best of Portishead and Massive Attack. Their most recent project was a collaborative album with Outkast's Big Boi, but now they're back by themselves.

Lukas Graham

January 28, 2017

Lukus Graham have had a whirlwind past couple of years. Already a sensation in their native Denmark, the foursome burst onto the international stage with the success of their latest self-titled record, which contained the earworm singles 'Strip No More', 'Mama Said' and '7 Years'.
