Baby boomers are basking in the brilliance of their legendary music era as three historic music events in 2009 promise to make it the year of ecstasy for music lovers. There has never been another season in 50 years that has Baby Boomers, their children, and their grandchildren booking flights, hotels, and buying tickets for the most celebrated year of music milestones in American history. What will probably go down as the live music concert of the century is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert on October 29, 2009 and October 30, 2009 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
American Express, sponsor of the giant Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert, is allowing cardmembers first dubs on tickets starting Monday July 27 at 9:00 a.m. by calling 1-800-745-3000. The rest of the public can purchase tickets beginning Monday, August 3rd at 9:00 a.m. Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, U2, Metallica, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Friends, and Simon and Garfunkel are among those playing at the mega music concert.
The Rock Hall has also enlisted the filmmaking and music documentary talents of Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, Jann Wenner, Cameron Crowe, Robbie Robertson, and Joel Gallen to curate the concert events.
