Two hard rock bands, one composed of newcomers and one with veteran rockers, performed on Sunday, September 10, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Hard rock fans lined up long before the doors opened in anticipation of the show.
The Roxy have expanded their 50th anniversary celebrations, announcing a series of new events and festivities taking place this September in conjunction with the historic milestone. In an LA Times front-page feature highlighting the initial wave of “Roxy50” activity, it was announced that Neil Young with Crazy Horse would play a special benefit show at the club on September 20. Now, a second night has been added in their return to The Roxy, taking place September 21.

The Roxy Theatre turns 50 this fall, and the iconic music club of the legendary Sunset Strip will celebrate with a full-slate of concerts, exhibits and events marking the milestone. In an LA Times online feature out today, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Roxy owner Lou Adler announced the return of Neil Young to The Roxy for a special performance taking place on September 20; fifty years to the day after he headlined the venue's opening night in 1973. The event will benefit The Painted Turtle and Bridge School.
A sold-out crowd of avid music fans packed The Roxy Theater on Sunset Strip in Hollywood, on the last day of January, for a very special concert. Starset, who may have created their own musical genre of Heavy Metal Space Rock gave a “demonstration” of their latest live show to adoring fans in the packed little theater.
