A feat of calculated risk remarkable bravery following the 1929 Wall Street Crash, philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. managed to build an entire complex of buildings on the property that would attract top commercial clients and help salvage the depressed economy of the area. Part of the Rockafeller Center, Radio City Music Hall opened in 1932 and remains to this day an enduring icon that stands testament to the American Dream in the face of adversity. The Radio Corporation of America was one of those original tenants, leading to the name Radio City staying until this day, and is a worldwide attraction, staging huge music concerts, and of course acting as the home of the illustrious Rockettes.

Mel Brooks

September 1, 2016

Few people have shaped the American comedy landscape more than Mel Books. In 2016 he sets out on the Back in the Saddle tour. Each night begins with a screening of his hilarious and outrageous 1974 Western parody Blazing Saddles, followed by a lengthy Q&A with the great man himself.

Amos Lee

September 10, 2016

One of the shining stars of modern folk, Amos Lee crosses the genres of folk, soul and jazz and calls on Stevie Wonder and James Taylor as major influences. His 2011 album 'Mission Bell' topped the Billboard charts and included contributions from Willie Nelson among others. His follow-up may have been met with mixed reviews, but as with any singer-songwriter of this genre, it's at a live performance where the magic is truly made.

Jeff Lynne's Electric Light Orchestra

September 16-18, 2016

The 1970s behemoth of sunny, classically fused synth-pop is triumphantly back and taking on the world once more! From the early strains of Mr. Blue Sky, it's impossible not to become totally immersed in Jeff Lynne's cheerful sphere of Beatlesque lyrics and joyful instrumentations that are capable of tackling dark themes with wit, honesty and total euphoria!

Aretha Franklin

September 23, 2016

Aretha Franklin's importance cannot not be overstated. She is simply one of the greatest singers the world has ever seen. With a voice which can't be mistaken, her mammoth back catalogue includes the classics Respect, Think and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. She was the first woman inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and even made a glorious cameo in The Blues Brothers.
