Multi-talented entertainer Rick Springfield brings his Best in Show Tour with Eddie Money and special guest Tommy Tutone to The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, July 27, 2019.

Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. The creator of some of the finest power-pop of the ’80s, a GRAMMY award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician who has sold 25 million albums and scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, including “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “An Affair of the Heart,” “I’ve Done Everything for You,” “Love Somebody,” and “Human Touch.” He’s an accomplished actor who has starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film “Ricki and the Flash,” gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama “True Detective,” earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit “Supernatural” and most recently played Pastor Charles on “American Horror Story.” In 2014, Springfield was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located around the corner from the first apartment he lived in when he first arrived in the U.S. from Australia in 1971. Springfield’s upcoming album Orchestrating My Life is due out April 2019.

Eddie Money joins Rick for the Best in Show Tour. With a legendary career spanning more than 40 years, Money has long-established himself as one of rock’s most beloved entertainers. After leaving his native Brooklyn for the Berkeley music scene in the 1970s, Money quickly rose to fame on the strength of a slew of successful albums and Top 40 hits including “Take Me Home Tonight,” “Shakin’,” “Think I’m In Love,” “Baby Hold On,” and many more. Money continues to tour across the country with his band, which includes three of his equally talented offspring who also appear with him currently along with the rest of his family in AXS network’s “Real Money” which is entering its second season.

Rounding out the tour, Tommy Tutone will perform to open up the night. In 1982, Tommy Tutone exploded onto the music scene with what is one of the best known songs in history. The song that sparked millions of prank calls is none other than “Jenny/867-5309.” Coming on the scene at the same time as MTV certainly didn’t hurt at all either, thus cementing him a place in the culture of the ’80s.

Tickets for Rick Springfield, Eddie Money and special guest Tommy Tutone are $49.95, $69.95, $79.95, $119.95 and $199.95 (front row), plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, April 19 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.

96.3 KKLZ’s Super Summer Bash, Starring Iconic 80’s Performers, Comes to Orleans Arena Aug. 25

96.3 KKLZ’s Super Summer Bash, Starring Iconic 80’s Performers, Comes to Orleans Arena Aug. 25

Top artists of the ‘80s, including Boy George, The Romantics, Tiffany, Tommy Tutone, Nu Shooz and Farrington and Mann, will bring their classic hits to 96.3 KKLZ’s Super Summer Bash at the Orleans Arena on Friday, Aug. 25.

Eighties music lovers will be taken back to one of the most celebrated eras in music history as they sing along to their favorite songs during a hit-filled evening hosted by Mike O’Brian and Carla Rea from “The KKLZ Morning Show.”

Legendary singer-songwriter and award-winning DJ Boy George burst into the music scene spinning his house and electronic music sets as a DJ in the late 1970s. In 1982, Boy George became the lead singer of pop band Culture Club, releasing the No. 1 single “Karma Chameleon.” Boy George went on to pursue a solo career in 1987 and released a series of hits, including “Everything I Own,” “The Crying Game” and “Coming Home.” Throughout his career, he has sold more than 100 million singles and 50 million albums and continues to be one of the most successful and in-demand DJs in the world.

Formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1976, The Romantics won over fans with their power pop sound, matching retro outfits, including their signature red leather suits, and high-energy performances. The Romantics are best known for their top hits “Talking in Your Sleep,” “One in a Million,” “What I Like About You” and “Test of Time” The group’s lineup features original members Wally Palmar, Mike Skill and Rich Cole, along with Brad Elvis.

Popstar Tiffany rose to fame with her No. 1 hit single “I Think We’re Alone Now.” Tiffany followed up her success with another No. 1 song “Could’ve Been” as well as a series of chart-topping hits, including “I Saw Him Standing There,” “All This Time” and “Radio Romance.” The pop icon became the youngest female artist to top the Billboard album charts and has sold more than 15 million albums to date. In 2016, Tiffany debuted her most recent album “A Million Miles.”

Best known for their top hits “867-5309/Jenny” and “Angel Say No,” Tommy Tutone rocked the early ‘80s as one of the most popular power pop bands. In 1982, “867-5309/Jenny” reached No. 4 on the Billboard Top 40 chart and became a gold-selling hit. The power pop group has released five hit albums, including “Tommy Tutone,” “Tommy Tutone 2,” “National Emotion,” “Nervous Love” and “Tutone.rtf.” The band’s current lineup includes Tommy Heath, Jimmy James, Greg Georgeson and Andy Gauthier.

In 1985, Nu Shooz’s popularity skyrocketed after releasing their EP “Tha’s Right,” which included their hit song “I Can’t Wait.” The song became an even bigger hit after it was remixed by Dutch DJ Peter Slaghuis, making “I Can’t Wait” a No. 3 Billboard Hot 100 single in 1986. After signing a record deal with Atlantic Records, the band went on to release more hit songs, including “Point of No Return,” “Are You Lookin’ for Somebody Nu” and “Should I Say Yes.” In 2012, the band released their most recent ‘80s-styled album “Kung Pao Kitchen.” Three years later, Nu Shooz’s hit “I Can’t Wait” gained new popularity after being featured in a TV commercial.

Farrington and Mann first took the stage together in 1985 as the original vocalists for the band When in Rome U.K., where they released the hit songs “The Promise” and “Heaven Knows.” Farrington and Mann reformed in 2009 as “Farrington and Mann: The Original When in Rome U.K.” with Rob Juarez. The band is currently touring the U.S. and plans to tour at countries around the world, including the Philippines, Canada and more.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets start at $39 plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000; online at www.orleanscasino.com or www.ticketmaster.com; or in-person at gift shops inside The Orleans, Suncoast, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town.
