Singer, songwriter and guitarist extraordinaire Gary Clark, Jr. will headline the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem on November 14. Clark's show at Terminal 5, set for November 16, has completely sold out.
Considered the bastion of African-American culture and achievement, The Apollo is famous for launching the careers of everyone from Ella Fitzgerald, to James Brown & His Famous Flames, to The Jackson 5, to Stevie Wonder, to Lauryn Hill. Now it will host Clark…again!
The opportunity to perform at The Apollo is an esteemed privilege that comes with unqualified sense of occasion for Clark, who first performed at the landmark theater on February 24, 2012, for the late Hubert Sumlin's Memorial Concert. On that evening, Clark played alongside Keith Richards, James Cotton, Eric Clapton and others to honor the memory of one of his heroes.
Tickets then go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 12, at noon.
Any New Yorkers plan to see Gary Clark, Jr. at the vaunted Apollo?
