digital rendering of Pier 97...
Pier 97

As we mentioned in the Robyn / Roykskopp tour announcement post, NYC is getting a new summer venue this year, Pier 97, a 5,000+ capacity venue which will be booked by Live Nation and part of Hudson River Park. It's located on the Hudson River at 57th St. That's a digital version of what it will look like, above.

In addition to the Robyn/Royksopp show on August 20, there's also a Thievery Corporation show on August 15, and others which are listed below, plus more TBA. Tickets for all Pier 97 shows go on sale Friday (4/11) at noon, except the Thievery Corporation show which goes on sale Friday, April 18 at 10 AM.

Hopefully they have more luck than Bowery Presents did with Pier 26 which won't be returning this year due to noise complaints.

Initial list of Pier 97 shows below...

---

Pier 97 -- 2014 Concerts
7/9 The Fray
7/19 311
7/21 Michael Franti & Spearhead, Soja, Brett Dennen, Trevor Hall
8/15 Thievery Corporation
8/20 Robyn & Royksopp

because who doesn't want to stand 2500 people back on a hot piece of flat cement with no video to watch a concert?

that picture makes no sense. If it's on 57th street on the West Side, why is the Empire State Building BEHIND it?

hey 2:58, possibly concert goers walk past the stage and look back at the towering city behind the stage while still standing on the freaking pier.

$70 to see 311 in what appears to be NJ going by the photo above. Can't wait!

LiveNation is run by a bunch of imbeciles. This entire thing is guaranteed to be a fiasco.

I can always depend on you, Live Nation, for terrible booking.

Live Nation know how to run shows (kinda--it's not like the power goes out or people get stabbed), although the booking and security measures just tend to be tacky and clueless.

Radiohead should play here!

Is Thievery a DJ set or full band?

Wow, what a shitty list of shows!

What is Rob Roscopp going to do, skate a jump ramp?

Saw Specials there last year on what was the hottest day of the summer. Nice breeze, good food and no lines for beer.

Fun time.

Terminal 5 and Pier 36 had a baby, and he's a huge asshole

The more outdoor venues the better.

if you are a certified mdiget, you won't enjoy any shows there

I hope they book Incubus and they play that spirited anthem about how George Bush should step down from the presidency!

The hacky sack circles at all of these shows should be pretty fierce!

I picture most millionaires, (i.e. the only people who can afford to live in NYC anymore,) as preferring classical music. Shouldn't they be appealing more to that audience?

I have never paid that much for a 311 ticket. It's a very absurd.

The noise from pier 97 transmitted through Hudson waters to the NJ side is very annoying

I could hear this from my apartment in NJ - it was LOUD.
