After Party at 10:30: Living Colour's 'Vivid' 25th Anniversary Celebration

Living Colour came onto the music scene in 1984 as a unique black rock band playing to truly diverse audiences with their stylistic fusion of free jazz, funk, hip hop, hard rock and heavy metal. In 1988, their Grammy Award winning debut album "Vivid", went on to break a number of barriers in the industry, and as a part of the Black Rock Coalition, went on to create a revered catalogue of music which they performed in the most famous venues around the world. The band won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for one of its many hits, The Cult of Personality. They were also named Best New Artist at the 1989 Video Music Awards and was rated one of VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock bands ever.

More than two decades later, Living Colour is still a global musical force. Come celebrate the 25th Anniversary of 'Vivid' with Living Colour and DJ Rampage Global directly following the 8:30 performance Show patrons guaranteed entry.
