Borgata Entertainment Blog – Comedy, Shows & More
Here in Atlantic City, nobody has to tell us that Sammy Hagar knows how to throw a party. We’ve sat in the sand too many times to count drinking the Red Rocker’s favorite tequila and listening to a musical catalog that spans a few decades—from his solo stuff to Van Halen to Chickenfoot and more.
Some things change—Hagar is pushing his Sammy Hagar’s Beach Bar Rum this time out, for example—but a lot of things stay pretty steady for Hagar. Take his choice of band mates for this tour—which has only one New Jersey stop.
Much like last summer, Hagar has teamed up with some old friends for a tour dubbed “A Journey through the History of Rock.” Hagar will be joined this summer by Van Halen and Chickenfoot bandmate Michael Anthony on bass, guitarist Vic Johnson and drummer Jason Bonham (You may have heard of his dad John).
The tour focuses on a very specific history and you’ll hear plenty of what you’d expect to hear at a Hagar show, as Anthony recently explained to ultimateclassicrock.com.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has been Atlantic City’s leading casino hotel for more than a decade and that includes on the concert stage as we bring a host of national and international entertainment acts to the area.
But no matter how big we get on the national concert circuit, Borgata remains first and foremost a South Jersey institution committed to the region’s budding art scene.
In 2008, Borgata began a relationship with the Bay Atlantic Symphony, South Jersey’s home orchestra dedicated to bringing classical music to the southern New Jersey shore. The Bay Atlantic Symphony has been a pioneer in community-based classical orchestras, bringing performances, educational programs and lecture series to much of South Jersey.
Borgata’s partnership with the symphony continues in 2014 with the second Bay Atlantic Concert Series at Borgata’s Music Box.
Three concerts are scheduled this summer on July 13, August 3 and August 17.
And, as has become the tradition, the series starts off with a bang as the symphony brings in renowned pianist Yuja Wang to lead off the series on July 13.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is Atlantic City’s leader in live entertainment and has put together another amazing summer schedule of live shows. From comedians such as Billy Gardell and Lewis Black to rock legends like Santana and John Mellencamp, Borgata’s summer line-up has got everyone’s tastes covered.
And that’s especially true if you’re feeling a little bit country.
Country superstars Keith Urban (July 17) and Darius Rucker (July 25) swing into the Borgata Event Center this summer.
Her current tour—which stops at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa June 27—has been grabbing headlines as if Twitter was made just for her.
Whether she’s showing off her half-shaved hairstyle with bestie Demi Lovato (actually, she dropped in on Lovato’s tour), sharing pics from a meet-and-greet with fans in Brazil or just releasing her latest video “Hello Kitty”, there’s hardly a moment when Avril isn’t being Avril online.
The production’s 1940‘s-inspired style, look and feel incorporates an enjoyable mix of burlesque and comedy. Complementing this theme are beautiful production dancers performing in a range of classic to contemporary burlesque show style performances intermingled with top-notch variety and burlesque stars from around the world.
So get ready for some ribald fun. Burlesque is back in A.C., only at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
