On September 20, Radio City Music Hall will play host to Easy Rider Live, a special movie/concert event featuring the iconic 1969 film screened along with a live soundtrack. With the recent death of Easy Rider actor/writer Peter Fonda, the event will now also celebrate the memory of the legendary actor.
The evening at Radio City was originally planned to kick off with a statement from Fonda, and Fonda’s wife, Parky, said regarding the night “We are all still healing from Peter’s sudden passing, but he would insist that the message of Easy Rider and the culture for which it stands carry on. The celebration of a cinematic masterpiece, a Hollywood icon, and my beloved husband will not only be one of a kind, but exactly what he wanted.”
Easy Rider Live also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the film. The legendary soundtrack will be performed live by John Kay, Roger McGuinn, & special guests, with the evening’s music produced by T. Bone Burnett. More information can be found here.
