Tickets, VIP tables and sponsorship packages are now available for Rock the Rooftop, which will take place under the stars on the W Hotel’s exclusive WET Deck on Friday, December 1. The concert, now in its second year, will light up the night with music’s biggest up-and-coming stars including intimate-yet-explosive performances by Chris Lane, Josh Ross, and more.
Currently, Lane has more than 1.7 billion on-demand streams and charted seven singles on Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, three of which went to No. 1 ("Fix", "I Don't Know About You", and "Big, Big Plans"). The Kernersville, N.C. native has appeared on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, TODAY, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and CONAN, and was featured in PEOPLE’s 2019 Sexiest Man Alive issue. He’s scored nominations at IHeartRadio Music Awards, ACM Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards as well.
Pushing through 2023 with no plans to slow down, Ross was announced as one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artists To Watch 2023 and made his Grand Ole Opry debut in July. Carving out his place in Country music, he has been touring across North America with Lee Brice, Chase Rice, Nickelback, Brantley Gilbert, and Bailey Zimmerman most recently.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Make-A-Wish Arizona and the Riot Gives Back foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Arizona was founded in Phoenix in 1980, and its focus is to grant life-changing wishes for Arizona children with critical illnesses.
“Make-A-Wish Arizona is deeply honored to be selected as a beneficiary of Rock the Rooftop Charity Concert,” said Fran Mallace, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “The support we receive from this event creates a meaningful impact in the lives of our wish kids, empowering Make-A-Wish Arizona to fulfill our mission of bringing joy, hope, and transformative wishes to children with critical illnesses."
Founded in 2022, Riot Gives Back is the charitable giving arm of Riot Hospitality Group, a premier national hospitality management company headquartered in Scottsdale. It is focused on directing funding and support to first responders, military members, veterans and their families, and the compassionate care of children. In its inaugural year in 2022, the event was able to raise $55,000 for the organizations.
“Hosting Rock the Rooftop in Scottsdale is the perfect place because this city enjoys hosting wonderful entertainment and supporting emerging music performers,” said Lissa Druss, RGB Executive Director. “The proceeds of this marque event will help the most important part of our future—our young people and so many others.”
General admission tickets start at $40; VIP tickets start at $100; table packages start at $5,000; and sponsorships start at $10,000.
