On Aug. 9, veteran concert promoter, venue owner and author Peter Shapiro sat down in conversation with senior editor and longtime writer at Rolling Stone, David Fricke, to discuss his new book, The Music Never Stops: What Putting on 10,000 Shows Has Taught Me About Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Magic, co-authored by Relix editor-in-chief, Dean Budnick, at Strand Bookstore in New York City. Now, a video that captures the dialogue has been uploaded to YouTube and is available to stream. Watch now

In the video, the two industry titans dig into Shapiro’s debut book, which gives readers an intimate look at the author’s distinguished career and life experiences– from operating Tribecca’s legendary Wetlands Preserve to reopening the fabled Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y. and inevitably launching the various Brooklyn Bowl venues.

The Music Never Stops gives readers a unique opportunity to see the music industry through the eyes of a seasoned legend, as Shapiro tells his readers about his 50 most iconic shows, which earned him the title of “the most notable independent concert promoter since Bill Graham,” a sentiment affirmed in Variety.

The full-length conversation is available to stream below via YouTube.
