The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the institution that gives voice to the stories of the people, artifacts and events that shaped the musical genre, and leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer Klipsch proudly announce a strategic, three-year partnership that will solidify the brand as the first ever presenting sponsor of Induction Ceremony events and the Rock Hall’s Main Stage. Klipsch’s renowned products will also fulfill all audio needs within the iconic museum.
“This is an ideal partnership for our Classic American Speaker company”, notes Matt Sommers, Klipsch VP of Global Marketing. “Klipsch was founded the better part of a century ago to bring the live music experience into people’s living rooms. Our founder, Paul W. Klipsch, made it his life’s goal to create speakers that rock. His ‘no bullshit’ attitude (with the science to back it up) changed the way we listen to music today. Many classic albums have been mixed, mastered and enjoyed on Klipsch. Every product we make carries that legendary legacy. This partnership is about heritage, respect, independence, expression and ‘kicking ass’ – characteristics of both Klipsch and Rock & Roll. We couldn’t be prouder.”
The Rock Hall’s 2015-2017 Induction Ceremonies, which bestow the highest honor in music, will be presented by American audio company Klipsch. An upcoming redesign and dedication of the famous Rock Hall Main Stage will also usher in a new era of unforgettable events and performances for years to come as the Klipsch Audio Stage at The Rock Hall. Additionally, Klipsch’s high-performance commercial and home theater speakers, soundbars and headphones will be integrated throughout the museum to ensure powerful, detailed and emotional listening experiences for visiting enthusiasts.
Klipsch is no stranger to supporting live music. Today, Klipsch is involved in the sponsorship of Live Nation Entertainment concert venues throughout North America, including the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre and Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The brand also served as the title sponsor of Kings of Leon’s 2014 Mechanical Bull Tour presented by Klipsch Audio.
“Klipsch is really well-aligned with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and all that we represent. Every day, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the pinnacle of achievement and tells the stories of the music that shaped our lives. That commitment to a high standard of musical excellence is at the heart of both of our brands and gives us an incredible foundation on which to build.”
