      Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution
    • Saturday, October 22, 2016
    • Bill Graham was the P.T. Barnum of rock 'n' roll, the legendary concert promoter who almost single-handedly pioneered the business of rock concerts, forever revolutionizing the symbiotic relationship between artists and audiences. A major catalyst in popular culture over three decades, from the psychedelic San Francisco scene of the '60s through globally conscious charity mega-events Live Aid and Amnesty International's "Conspiracy of Hope" world tour, Graham remains one of the seminal figures of the rock era.
