The Museum of Science & History and Overton Park Shell are pleased to announce a new series of live music in the MoSH AutoZone Dome at the Sharpe Planetarium
Get ready for a music experience like no other – Laser Live! In partnership with the Overton Park Shell’s Shell on Wheels, the Museum of Science & History will host a series of live concerts in the MoSH AutoZone Dome at the Sharpe Planetarium, beginning on May 13 with Hope Clayburn & Soul Scrimmage.
Saturdays, May 13, June 10, July 15, August 19, September 30
This event, created in partnership with the Shell on Wheels, WYXR and Crosstown Brewery, is an opportunity for both musicians and the Memphis community to experience the Planetarium in a new, exciting way.
“While we all enjoy our regularly scheduled laser shows, we thought we’d kick it up a notch in celebration of our America at the Crossroads and Memphis Picks exhibits,” says Kevin Thompson, Executive Director of MoSH. “The acoustics are fantastic in the planetarium, and this gives us a chance to highlight some of the best musicians in Memphis. We are so grateful to the folks at the Overton Park Shell for teaming up with us to stage this incredible series.”
There will be two 45-minute sets each night, one at 7pm and the other at 8:30pm except for the Freeworld shows on June 10, which shift to 4:30pm and 6pm. All music shows will be accompanied by a full laser show inspired by the artist’s work. This is a great chance to see Memphis artists perform in the most unique music venue in the city.
Beer from Crosstown Brewery will be available for purchase and enjoy throughout the show, and tickets will be $18 for adult and youth guests and $15 for MoSH members.
