New York City is about to receive another new epic outdoor concert venue, Pier 17. Pier 17 is slated to open on August 1, 2018, which is located downtown in Manhattan’s Seaport District. This state-of-the-art 3,400-capacity, 1.5-acre rooftop venue will have the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, One World Trade, Empire State Building and the Manhattan skyline as an eye-pleasing backdrop. Live Nation is the exclusive concert promoter to this new rooftop stage. The Seaport District’s brand new venue has finally announced the full artist lineup for the inaugural Pier 17 concert series.
Jon Batiste with the Dap-Kings will perform a free public concert on Saturday, July 28 to kick off the concert series.
