Pier Six Pavilion gearing up for 2013 kick off in May!

It’s time to air out the tents, dust off the seats and gear up to Rock the Docks at Pier Six Pavilion on the Inner Harbor all summer! We’ve been busy preparing to rock your socks off at the pier all Spring, and now it’s finally almost time to enjoy your favorite bands – with your favorite beverage in hand- underneath the stars on the Inner Harbor! Here’s what we have lined up for you so far:








May 3  – Foreigner

We kick off the season the first weekend in May, beginning with Foreigner on Friday night.

Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world, racking up scores of smash hits, multi-platinum albums, and sold out concert tours. From “Cold As Ice” to “Hot Blooded,” “Urgent to Jukebox Hero,” and “Waiting For A Girl Like You” to the chart topper “I Want To Know What Love is,”  Foreigner’s thrilling mix of blustery blues and impeccably crafted pop continues to captivate generation after generation of music fans. Today, over 70 million albums later, Foreigner is an ensemble of talented musicians each adding their individual credentials to the mix to make the band stronger and more powerful than ever.








May 5 – Earth, Wind & Fire

To continue the “1-2 punch” of the kick-off weekend, Earth, Wind & Fire returns to Baltimore Sunday night. Earth, Wind and Fire’s legacy over four decades has produced 20 Grammy nominations with 8 wins, an induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and bountiful musical and cultural achievements. The signature sound of Earth, Wind & Fire is not easily categorized and since the group’s inception they have been profoundly influentially. From 8-tracks to iPods, Earth, Wind & Fire’s music has withstood the test of time.









May 11 – Get Your Preak On w/ Phil Vassar

It’s May, and you know what that means – it’s time for the 138th Running of the Preakness Stakes!! Kick off all of the Preakness excitement with a party May 11 on the Inner Harbor at Pier Six Pavilion featuring the Maryland’s Best Crab Concoction contest featuring Charm City’s best food trucks and an unforgettable performance by country music star Phil Vassar. Vassar’s unbounded energy and limitless talent have proven him, again and again, as one of Nashville’s most prolific and versatile stars. Those who best understand Phil Vassar – good-time, piano playing, boundless energy on stage, hardest-working-man-in-the business– also understand the ongoing evolution of his original music. Get your Preak On with us!








May 19 – ZZ Top

Here comes the sharp dressed men! ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and in 2004 the Texas trio was be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.”
