The new NYC outdoor concert venue JBL Live at Pier 97 had its first show last week (The Fray, 7/9) and there have been a few notable additions since we lasted posted. Lee Fields & The Expressions will open the August 15 Thievery Corporation show (tickets), and Bob Weird & Ratdog play on August 18 (tickets).

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...

The promoter of the more than 30 concerts scheduled for PNC Bank Arts Center this summer has banned tailgating at five of the events, hoping to reduce alcohol consumption, especially underage drinking.
High-ranking representatives of Live Nation Corp., the promoter, told the Senate Legislative Oversight Committee in Trenton today tailgating will not be permitted rock concerts by John Mayer, OAR, 311, Beatstock and a day-long rock festival tagged Projekt Revolution. There will be no Ozzfest tour this year.
Live Nation, which has nine years remaining on a seemingly ironclad 20-year contract to present concerts at the state-owned amphitheater, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, and the State Police want to prevent a repeat of the last year's concert season when 2 teenagers died, and 615 people were arrested, mainly for heavy drinking, including 437 who were 20 years old or younger at 34 concerts.
