New York City is about to receive another new concert venue, Pier 17–opening up on August 1, 2018. In Manhattan’s Seaport District, the 3,400-capacity, 1.5-acre rooftop venue will have the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, One World Trade, and the Manhattan skyline as the backdrop. With Live Nation as the exclusive promoter to the new rooftop stage, the Seaport District venue has announced the full artist lineup for the inaugural Pier 17 concert series.
To kick off the concert series, Jon Batiste with the Dap-Kings will perform a free public concert on Saturday, July 28 as a thank you to the community for its unyielding support. There will be a mix of general-admission and seated concerts through October 12, including Kings of Leon (2 nights), Michael McDonald, deadmau5, Dashboard Confessional, STS9 (two nights with Papadosio and Slow Magic), Diana Ross, Thievery Corporation, and more.
Pier 17 will occupy the roof of a four-story, 400,000 square foot complex with retail stores, high-end restaurants by celebrity chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Andrew Carmellini plus a 50,000-square-foot food hall curated by Vongerichten, and entertainment, including Manhattan’s first iPic Theatre; Carla Sozzani‘s concept store, 10 Corso Como; and the new ESPN studios.
