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.
In celebration of the legacy of Bill Graham, join the Ardmore Music Hall, the legendary Main Line address for rock & roll, for an exciting series of afternoon preview events at the Museum featuring artists scheduled to perform at their venue in the evenings.
