Riverboats at the Gateway Arch COVID-19 Update: As we continue to monitor and assess the evolving health situation and follow guidance from federal and local health departments, we plan to re-introduce our cruise lineup slowly and carefully. At this time, the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch will only offer the one-hour St. Louis Riverfront Cruise. When we deem it appropriate, we will re-introduce other cruise experiences.

Gateway Arch visitors must enter the monument through the new west entrance, which faces Fourth Street and the Old Courthouse. The Gateway Arch legs have become exits only. Tram tickets will sell out early and often - advance tickets are strongly recommended. Please allow at least 30 minutes to go through security.

iLLPHONiCS Riverfront Concert Experience

iLLPHONiCS Riverfront Concert Experience

Hip-Hop Fusion pioneers and Saint Louis natives, iLLPHONiCS, have played all over the region and the country for well over a decade. Describing their live performances as a “360 Experience,” the group strives to create shows in local environments with original music that are unique but also highlight the rich history of Saint Louis. What better place than the Saint Louis riverfront to carry on the tradition?

From the creation of the Blues in the Lower Mississippi Delta, which migrated to Saint Louis with legendary players to the beginnings of Jazz in the early 1900s when a young Louis Armstrong performed with Fate Marable’s Band on river steamboats traversing from New Orleans to Saint Louis, the Mississippi River was both a main artery of commerce in America and also integral in the formation of Saint Louis and American music.

In celebration of this storied history and their forthcoming 7th full release album titled Moonglow, iLLPHONiCS is partnering with Riverboats at the Gateway Arch from April to June, to bring you three groundbreaking shows, two on the dock and one on the Becky Thatcher. “Moonglow by the River” will mix the music of the iLLPHONiCS and other local acts with the ambiance and nostalgia of the mighty Mississippi River. The goal is to invoke the spirit of our vibrant music history and celebrate our current music scene, all while activating our beautiful riverfront.
