‘Easy Rider Live’ will honor Peter Fonda’s memory – win tix & merch pack!
The 50th anniversary of counter-culture classic Easy Rider will be celebrated in NYC on Friday (9/20) with “Easy Rider Live,” a special screening and music event with a live soundtrack featuring Steppenwolf’s John Kay, The Byrds’ Roger McGuinn and “special guests.” Peter Fonda was to have given opening remarks with T. Bone Burnett, who did the film’s music production, but following his death in August, the event will continue on without him in honor of his memory. “We are all still healing from Peter’s sudden passing,” his widow, Parky Fonda, says, “but he would insist that the message of Easy Rider and the culture for which it stands carry on. The celebration of a cinematic masterpiece, a Hollywood icon, and my beloved husband will not only be one of a kind, but exactly what he wanted.”
Tickets to “Easy Rider Live” are on sale now, and we have two pairs to give away! The first prize winner will also receive an Easy Rider merch pack. Enter for a chance to win below.
Two winners will be chosen at random and contacted with more details. Good luck!
