For the past three years, Klipsch has been the official audio partner of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The company has been involved in updating the audio equipment at the iconic Rock Hall. Plus, Klipsch is the first-ever presenting sponsor of the annual Induction Ceremony that celebrates the accomplishments of great musicians. Today, Klipsch announced that it’s renewing the multi-year strategic partnership and sponsorship with the Hall of Fame for three more years.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s main facility—the Rock Hall—is undergoing a major, multi-year renovation featuring multimedia upgrades to the exhibits. Part of the transformation includes the largest installation of Klipsch pro/commercial speakers and headphones in the world.
Visitors to the Rock Hall can enjoy a performance at the Klipsch Audio Stage, where guest artists play live sets. It also includes the Power of Rock Experience, which is a redesigned outdoor plaza for the facility that features interactive sound.
This partnership also resulted in Revolutions, a branded video series exploring records that have deeply influenced the world of music. So far, the series has covered releases from the Beatles, Pearl Jam, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, The Ramones, and more.
“Our sole purpose at Klipsch is to reproduce the power, detail, and emotion of the live music experience. Together with the Rock Hall, we can ensure that music and its history are valued for generations to come,“ said Paul Jacobs, president and CEO of Klipsch Audio.
In 2018, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held at the Cleveland Public Auditorium, a stunning facility that blends the aesthetics of the grand movie palaces of yore with the seating capacity of a modern sports arena. It will be an interesting contrast to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the Klipsch-sponsored 2017 ceremony occurred.
“At the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, we are committed to a high standard of musical excellence,” said Steve Dobo, director of sponsorship & promotions for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “Our partnership with Klipsch over the last three years has truly raised the bar for our visitor experience. We look forward to collaborating with Klipsch for another three years to deliver memorable fan experiences both in and out of the Rock Hall.”
I had the honor and privilege of being a guest of Klipsch at the 2017 induction ceremony and I must say, it’s an enviable gig to be associated with. It speaks directly to how Klipsch connects people with the music they love by providing products that are engineered to perform. The company is always encouraging folks to turn up the volume and enjoy the music because at the end of the day Rock & Roll is not something you listen to quietly.
