Rock icon Neil Young is set to return to Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre for a special performance on September 20th for the venue’s 50th anniversary.
Young will pay homage to when he first took the stage at the venue on its opening night exactly 50 years earlier.
Lou Adler founded the club in September 1973 alongside then-partner Elmer Valentine. Elliot Roberts, David Geffen, Bill Graham and Peter Asher participated as investors and consultants.
Over the past five decades, artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, The Ramones, Chuck Berry featuring Tina Turner, Emmylou Harris, Guns N’ Roses and Todd Rundgren have performed at the venue.
In 2018, Young released the live album Roxy: Tonight’s the Night Live, recorded in 1973 during his three-night run at the Los Angeles club.
Proceeds from Young’s September 20th performance will go toward the Bridge School, which helps children with severe speech and physical impairments, and The Painted Turtle, a camp for kids with serious medical conditions.
Goldenvoice is set to announce more celebration concerts at the venue soon.
