Live Nation To Present Outdoor Concerts At NYC's Pier 97

Just a few days after the historic NYC venue Roseland closed its doors, Live Nation has announced it will host outdoor concerts at New York City's Pier 97, which is located blocks from the ballroom. So far Live Nation has announced shows at the venue, which is dubbed "JBL Live at Pier 97," featuring The Fray (July 9), 311 (July 19), The Soulshine Tour with Michael Franti and Spearhead (July 21) and Robyn and Röyksopp’s Do It Again Tour (August 20).

The venue will boast a capacity of 6,000 and follows last summer's shows at another NYC pier on the Hudson River - Pier 26. According to Billboard, the venue will host concerts through late September or early October, depending on the weather. No word yet on just how many events JBL Live at Pier 97 will host.
