Already a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Hall is presenting Gospel and Soul singer Mavis Staples with the Rock Hall Honors Award.
On September 20, Mavis will be performing at the Playhouse Square where she will be celebrating a career of music.
Tickets for the event go on sale August 16. A limited number of VIP and premium seats will be available.
Speaking on her upcoming award, Staples said, “I am so thrilled to receive the Rock Hall Honors tribute. When my family, the Staple Singers, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it was exciting for the whole family. For me to now come back on my own as a solo artist to receive this honor is just beyond belief and I know my father, Pops Staples, would be so proud. I am thrilled that they would think to honor me with this, and I can’t wait for the event in September.”
On September 21 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will spotlight Mavis with a day of music, films, activities, and artifacts.
