The National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) in Philadelphia will be the exclusive East Coast venue for Bill Graham and the Rock and Roll Revolution. The exhibition, which opens on September 16 and will run through January 16, 2017, presents the first comprehensive retrospective about the life and career of legendary rock impresario Bill Graham (1931–1991).
Recognized as one of the most influential concert promoters in history, Graham played a pivotal role in the careers of iconic artists including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Fleetwood Mac, the Who, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, and the Rolling Stones. He conceived of rock & roll as a powerful force for supporting humanitarian causes and was instrumental in the production of milestone benefit concerts such as Live Aid (1985) and Human Rights Now! (1988).
