The SPIN25 concerts will be held July 26-30 in New York City, the home of SPIN magazine since its beginning in 1985. Each night will feature five hours of performances, bringing 25 hours of music over the five-day period. Additional performers will be announced soon.

“More than a year ago, when we first started thinking about how to celebrate SPIN’s 25th anniversary, we thought it would be cool to curate a series of concerts featuring some of the great artists that have appeared in the pages of SPIN,” says SPIN magazine editor Doug Brod. “25 hours of music over five nights seemed like a nice hook, so we partnered with Bowery Presents to realize the dream. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the headliners, and just wait till you see the opening bands!”

Presale tickets for the shows will be available exclusively to holders of the ZYNC card from American Express — from 10 AM on June 11 to 10 PM on June 13 — here. Tickets go on sale to the general public on June 14 at 11 AM exclusively on Zync’s Facebook page.

Fans who can’t attend the concerts will be able to watch them streamed live on the Zync Facebook page and on SPIN.com. [SPIN.com]
