Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts will play a special show on June 28 in New York City as part of Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing series. The event will serve as the U.S. debut of Watts’ jazz-blues side project, The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie. The group — which also features pianists Axel Zwingenberger and Ben Waters, and bassist Dave Green — is scheduled to play two hour-long sets, at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET. Tickets are on sale now for $17 at LincolnCenter.org.
Prior to the concert, a dance instructor will treat attendees to lesson on how to do the Lindy Hop. The show takes place two days after the band’s first album, Live in Paris, will be released.
As previously reported, Watts and The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie will play a four night stand at New York City’s famed Iridium jazz club that will run from June 29 through July 2. The group will play two shows each night, at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
