1/4Webster Hall@websterhall. You can’t talk music venues without mentioning Webster Hall. Operating as a concert venue and nightclub since 1886, Webster Hall has played host to many of rock and roll’s biggest players – Prince, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner and B.B. King among them. The venue has also housed countless glittering private events for megastars including Madonna and Mick Jagger. If only these walls could talk.
The heady days of Max’s Kansas City and CBGB may well be a thing of the past, but the legacy of New York’s downtown music scene lives on by way of the many venues in tune with the city’s eternal appetite for the live version.
