Clay Aiken At The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom

Another Clay Aiken summer concert has popped up at Ticketmaster.

Put August 10, 2010 on your calendar if you are interested in seeing Clay and Ruben Studdard perform in New Hampshire. You can catch them at the historic Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom.

Located on the New Hampshire shoreline within an hour’s drive of Boston, Mass., Concord, N.H., and Portland, Maine, Hampton Beach has been a prime summer holiday designation for more than a century. The historic Hampton Beach Casino, built in 1899, remains a leading attraction in the New England resort area, while the adjacent Casino Ballroom, added in 1927, continually draws some of the top names in entertainment. In order to sustain its reputation as one of the best venues in which to play and hear live music, the 2,200-seat ballroom has received a major redesign of its audio and lighting systems.

The Casino Ballroom remains, in many ways, unchanged since opening its doors on the cusp of the Roaring Twenties, when it was regarded as one of the largest and most popular dance halls in the region. The ballroom’s popularity peaked in the mid-1930s, when thousands crowded onto the dance floor to swing to such headliners as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie. At the dawn of the rock ‘n’ roll era, The Supremes, the Four Tops, and Peter, Paul and Mary shared the stage with the Beach Boys, the Lovin’ Spoonful, and the Fifth Dimension. The ballroom’s legacy continued with performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and many more.

  1. Wow…….this sounds like an interesting venue. I hope the tickets go on sale soon.

    Thanks for the information.

  2. This sounds like an amazing and what a history of entertainers. Clay Aiken will blow the roof off this place.

  3. Wow, those are some inexpensive tickets! I'm guessing because they have general admission for some of this? I wonder if they will book anything in LA too.

  4. What a perfect venue for Clay Aiken and his wonderful music from TNT. A Ballroom…it just seems to fit so perfectly. I wish I was closer to the venue….

    Hugs,

  5. This venue sounds perfect for Clay Aiken and Ruben. I get my vacation in August so it is perfect for me too.

  6. They both look like fab venues for Clay Aiken. Im still trying to decide whether to go to Biltmore, NYC, or hope they come to Michigan area again.

  7. I'm anxious for the rest of the dates to get announced so I can make my plans. I have a feeling there'll be a date with a few hours drive for me. This one is over 6 hours away.

  8. This looks like a good summer place for the tour. It's a little too far for me. I am waiting with baited breath for a show in Florida..maybe Orlando again or somewhere in the Northern part of Florida. Can't afford to travel to a venue this year.
