Live Performance in City Hall Park

One of the most influential bands of the late '80s, Living Colour crossed musical and racial boundaries with thier blend of hard rock, metal, jazz fusion & funk, blazing a trail for successful protege such as Rage Against the Machine & Sevendust.

Do not miss this opportunity to see them blaze live in City Hall Park!
