The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts will be hosting legendary author/photographer Ethan Russell and his Best Seat in the House show to their main stage on Friday March 1 at 8pm. As the chosen photographer for rock & roll legends such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, The Eagles, Janis Joplin and more, Ethan had literally “the best seat in the house” for many of rock’s most iconic moments from 1966-1982.
The Best Seat in the House takes the audience back to the golden age of Rock & Roll through the eyes of the camera and from the mouth of a storyteller. He takes us “along for the ride” in only his second performance of this magnitude, sharing over 350 famous and never-seen-before images, fascinating stories and legendary music. An optional question & answer period follows where the audience can “pick the brain” of a living legend.
(His) was no ordinary eye, and I found out no ordinary mind behind it....
A quiet thoughtful man with a blinding vision. Enjoy his work. I do.
-Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones
Ethan is the civilised eye of an uncivilised art-form: rock 'n' roll
-Pete Townshend, The Who
