House of Blues is a chain of live music concert halls and restaurants in major markets throughout the United States. House of Blues' first location, in Cambridge, Massachusetts' Harvard Square, was opened in 1992 by Isaac Tigrett, co-founder of Hard Rock Cafe, and Dan Aykroyd, co-star of the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.

Overview

The first House of Blues opened on November 26, 1992, in the Harvard Square commercial district and retail area of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company was originally financed by Dan Aykroyd, Aerosmith, Paul Shaffer, River Phoenix, James Belushi, and Harvard University, among others. This original location has since closed. However, the hands-in-concrete driveway where members of the Blues Brothers and others left their mark, still remains.

Aykroyd and Belushi remain associated with the brand and are present for most openings, attending and performing at the opening celebrations of both the Houston and the Boston House of Blues locations. In 1999, House of Blues acquired Universal Concerts from Seagram. On July 5, 2006, Live Nation acquired House of Blues. As a division of Live Nation, the company currently operates 11 clubs throughout North America, with its location in Atlantic City (closed August 2014 along with Showboat Atlantic City) being franchised. The iconic Sunset Strip location in West Hollywood, CA closed in July 2015; a new location has not been found. Nine of these locations also feature the VIP membership club, Foundation Room.
