Description: Open Door is the highly anticipated new project from Grammy®-award winning singer/songwriter India.Arie.
In this fresh musical offering, Arie partners with Israeli artist Idan Raichel — a driving force in contemporary world music — to create a cross-genre collection of songs that are poignantly relevant to a global audience. In a stripped down setting, emboldened by their cause, the two artists confidently deliver one of the most honest musical expressions to have reached the stage in years.
Venue Description: Located on the Upper West Side, the 2,894-seat Beacon Theatre is considered to be Radio City Music Hall?s "older sister." The art deco-designed Beacon opened in 1929 as a venue for vaudeville acts, drama, opera and movies and is well regarded for its superior acoustics. In 2006, former President Bill Clinton celebrated his birthday with a private Rolling Stones concert. Past performers there include Queen, Jerry Garcia, Allman Brothers (they have performed there 173 times), Radiohead, Bryan Ferry, and many more. Beacon Theatre is accessible by subway; get the 1/2 train to 72nd Street station.
