Neil Berg 50 Years of Rock III

Neil Berg's Fifty Years of Rock & Roll returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall after a crowd-pleasing 2018 Part II concert for Part III! You've witnessed the spectacle of Neil Berg for the last 11 years with 100 Years of Broadway. Here comes a new show featuring tributes to such iconic rock stars as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, The Who, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, and many others. Six fabulous Rock and Roll singers including leads from such bands as MEATLOAF, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the best rock musicals on Broadway, backed by a five piece all-star band, tell the story of the fifty-year history of Rock & Roll that changed the world. From the progenitors of rock and roll in the 1940s, through the glory years of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, up until MTV in the early 80s, Fifty Years of Rock and Roll Part III is filled with fascinating stories and groundbreaking music.
