Sonny Rollins @80: In Concert at the Beacon Theatre NYC on September 10
(Published: May 12, 2010)

Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins will present a special concert at the Beacon Theatre on Friday, September 10 at 8:00 pm. The concert, "Sonny Rollins @80 - A Celebration with Special Guests," comes three days after the jazz legend's 80th birthday. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 14 at 9:00 a.m.

Rollins's last New York concert was at Carnegie Hall on September 18, 2007, which marked the 50th anniversary of his Carnegie debut. He last played the Beacon in 1995.

"The Beacon Theatre is one of my favorite venues in the world," says Rollins. "It's great to be coming back after such a long absence. I hope to see you there."

Other than the West Coast dates now in progress (Seattle, Berkeley, Los Angeles, Davis), and a June 12 performance at the Discover Jazz Festival in Burlington, VT, "Sonny Rollins @80" will be Rollins's only U.S. appearance for the remainder of 2010. (Tours of Japan and Europe are booked for the fall and winter.)

Rollins plans to announce personnel details for the Beacon event in August.

Ticket prices are $120, $85, $65, $40, and $35, online at www.beacontheatre.com; or at the Beacon Theatre box office at 2124 Broadway between West 74th and 75th Streets (Mon-Sat. 11:00 am-7:00 pm). Tickets are also available through www.ticketmaster.com. For general information, call 212-465-6500.
