Address The Fillmore 1805 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA

On the American West Coast, the Fillmore contributed to the emergence of the 1960s rock scene.

In 1912, the building in which the Fillmore was built took up residence in 1954. Often booked by the famous promoter Bill Graham, the venue saw artists such as The Velvet Underground, Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Byrds, Janis Joplin, The Who or Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding. The Fillmore was hit hard by the earthquake of October 1989 before being reborn. A true monument of rock and roll having crossed the ages to the rhythm of the musicians that it sometimes contributed to make known on the world scene.
