ROCK THE PLAZA RECAP
Rock the Plaza was a one-night-only benefit concert to raise funds to help save the historic Plaza Theatre in Palm Springs that featured world-class musicians. Brian Ray, Paul McCartney’s guitarist, and Spike Edney, keyboard player and touring musical director for Queen, are co-musical directors and curators for the show. Headlining performers included Alice Cooper, Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and famed female guitarist, Orianthi. The band included drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses), Jon Button (The Who), Eric Singer (Kiss) and more.
The concert took place on Friday, November 11 at 8 PM. It was a spectacular success and helped to raise nearly $400,000 (gross) toward the restoration project. This was due in part to the contributions of our event sponsors and made possible by the generosity of the artists, all of whom donated their time and talent.
