Cleveland International Film Festival } March 22 – April 1, 2023 } Playhouse Square


Year: 2001
Country: United States
Run Time: 60 minutes

One night only at the Great Lakes Science Center, be a part of the pop music concert of the decade! Carlos Santana, The Dave Matthews Band, Sting, Sheryl Crow, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Moby and more will take the stage in what will recall all-star concert spectaculars of the past twenty years. This special event brings together the CIFF and GLSC once again after last year's hit presentation of The Old Man and the Sea. Each act will be larger than life on the Omnimax screen, performing one giant number. Added to this musical dream is the addition of footage highlighting the next best thing to an "all access" pass at a concert. Music fans will get to live out the fantasy of seeing their favorite pop musicians not only perform their best numbers, but also hang out with them at the sound check, in the dressing room and backstage. Between intimate behind-the-scenes moments and larger-than-life performances, you will experience the sights and sounds via a musical cinema thrill like no other. Get your pass and head over to Cleveland's lakefront for a concert not to be missed. Joining these stars will be Al Green, B.B. King, Rob Thomas, Kid Rock, Macy Gray, The Roots, Trey Anastasio of Phish, and Cheb Mami.

"When you let music take over, that's when people get their hair standing up on their back because you're not forcing it."
