SUITS THAT ROCK 2022 At MegaCorp Pavilion Tickets Now On Sale

The Carnegie has announced that tickets for SUITS THAT ROCK, its signature annual fundraiser, are now on sale.

New this year, the 15th annual SUITS THAT ROCK will take the stage at its new home thanks to a partnership with MegaCorp Pavilion (formerly PromoWest Pavilion) at OVATION. A local music tradition, SUITS THAT ROCK will take place on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, and features executives from local companies leaving the boardroom in favor of the stage, which this year will feature music worthy of the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

The move to OVATION follows the success of 2021's SUITS THAT ROCK event at the Covington Plaza Outdoor Amphitheater. Moving outdoors for the first time in the event history, the 2021 iteration of SUITS THAT ROCK raised a record for the event, more than $150,000 for local arts education programming for children. With the expanded event capacity available at OVATION, this year's concert looks to raise even more for children in our community.

"In a true example of lemons and lemonade, last year dictated a move outside to ensure everyone's safety and as a result, we enjoyed the biggest success in SUITS THAT ROCK's history," said Kim Best, Executive Director of The Carnegie. "This new partnership with OVATION ensures two of Northern Kentucky's most dynamic institutions will join forces to continue the momentum."

SUITS THAT ROCK co-founder and executive committee member John Domaschko agrees.

"OVATION is everything you could want as a performer/concert goer: A big stage in a centralized location against a fantastic, scenic backdrop with all the bells and whistles needed to rock the house," said Domaschko. "Each year we raise the bar on the success of this event and this year will be no different. We look forward to producing an event both the performers and audience love, and continuing our commitment to future generations of students in all arts disciplines."

"MegaCorp Pavilion is not intended to just be a premiere entertainment venue for Northern Kentucky, but an integral part of the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati community itself," Abby Gerwe, Director of Special Events at the pavilion. "This partnership with The Carnegie ensures a space for great performers to entertain while inspiring and ensuring the vibrancy of our local arts community across generations."

Musically, this year's SUITS THAT ROCK concert will feature a mix of classic and contemporary rock tunes sure to appeal to audiences of all ages. This year's theme will highlight those who have graced the cover of Rolling Stone. Already selected for this year's concert are "Cover of Rolling Stone" by Dr Hook and "The Pretender" by the Foo Fighters. Other songs will include those by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones (the two most frequent subjects of the Rolling Stone cover) to more recent favorites from Dua Lipa and Ed SHeeran.

SUITS THAT ROCK tickets are $40 and are on sale now. Tickets purchased at the $40 level include a reserved seat for the outdoor event. Should inclement weather move the event inside, tickets at this level will automatically convert to indoor standing room only tickets. Tickets can be purchased by calling The Carnegie Box Office at (859) 957-1940 (Tues-Fri, noon to 5 p.m.).
