The Parker unveils a new look—and a great roster of upcoming performances
Apparently, it wasn’t enough to reimagine the building. Along with raising the curtain next month on a $30 million renovation (with state-of-the-art acoustics, and a new premium lounge among the enhancements), the former Parker Playhouse also has rolled out a 2021-22 schedule packed with buzzworthy shows.
The iconic venue that debuted in 1967, now known as The Parker, will play host to classic rockers (Rick Springfield, Sept. 26; Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac fame, Sept. 30; and The Monkees’ Farewell Tour, Oct. 12), stand-up greats (Paula Poundstone, Dec. 9; Lewis Black, Dec. 10; and Patton Oswalt, Dec. 29)—as well as a steady roster of top tribute bands paying homage to Journey (Oct. 22), Tina Turner (Jan. 16), Led Zeppelin (Jan. 22), Aretha Franklin (Feb. 3), and Queen (May 12).
