The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC), in partnership with exclusive booking partner Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: LYV), unveiled today the initial lineup for its second annual Summer Concert Series on The Rooftop at Pier 17® at the Seaport District. Kicking off in May, this summer’s concert series features performances by artists including Grammy nominated pop rock band, OneRepublic; comedy trio, The Lonely Island; soul musicians, Trombone Shorty & Ben Harper; legendary rock band, Steve Miller Band and more, all set against panoramic views of the iconic New York skyline. New Yorkers and visitors alike will once again be able to experience the one-of-a-kind, open-air rooftop venue recently named “Best New Concert Venue” of 2018 at the 30th Annual Pollstar Awards.

The Rooftop at Pier 17 captivated fans and industry professionals last year by offering the preeminent sound quality of an intimate listening environment in a rooftop outdoor setting overlooking the Lower Manhattan waterfront, and exceptional hospitalities featuring gourmet food trucks with specially curated menus, premium drink stations and luxury experiences.

“Following the success of our 2018 inaugural season, we look forward to welcoming New Yorkers back to the Seaport District for an unforgettable concert experience,” said Saul Scherl, President of the New York Tri-State Region, The Howard Hughes Corporation. “This season will once again feature first-class entertainment and unparalleled panoramic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.”

“We are thrilled to welcome such a diverse group of artists to such a beautiful venue as part of the 2019 Summer Concert Series on The Rooftop at Pier 17,” said Stacie George, Senior Vice President at Live Nation. “We are proud to partner with The Howard Hughes Corporation and look forward to an amazing summer of music on the water.”

This concert season will also feature the new Heineken Green Zone from Pier 17 Founding Partner Heineken, offering guests an exclusive fan section with a reserved Premium GA (general admission) viewing area situated in front of the stage and access to dedicated concessions. In addition, other Pier 17 Founding Partners—Chase, The Lincoln Motor Company and Pepsi—continue to elevate the visitor experience with engaging consumer activations throughout the season, on The Rooftop at Pier 17 and throughout the Seaport District.

Within the last year, the new Pier 17 has quickly established itself as a dynamic, year-round destination for culinary and cultural entertainment, offering space for concerts, private events, product launches and more, along with this year’s introduction of the Seaport District’s new Winterland experience, featuring the city’s first open-air rooftop ice skating rink. The Pier Village, a collection of waterfront restaurants by culinary powerhouses on the first two floors of Pier 17, will welcome its first restaurant by summer 2019 with the opening of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s seafood restaurant followed by openings from David Chang of the Momofuku Group, Helene Henderson of Malibu Farm, and Andrew Carmellini.
