“Out of an abundance of caution and to allow the Broadway community the necessary time to focus on performing their shows safely, we have held off on our annual live concert, but rest assured, we are still going to bring you the rock!” said Rockers Creator Kehr and Executive Producer Cori Gardner in a joint statement. “We are so excited to be releasing an album of the best live performances from Rockers on Broadway concerts over the past 28 years.”
