New Jersey icons bring rock concert to The Event Center in May

PHILADELPHIA — March 4, 2019 — Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes bring their high-energy, classic Jersey Shore sound to The Event Center at Rivers Casino Philadelphia on Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, March 8, and cost from $29 to $49.

With over 30 years of experience in the music industry, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes’ music features blues-inspired horns blended with gritty rock and roll.

Originally formed in 1975, the Jersey Shore musical group, led by Southside Johnny, started as the house band at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Since then, the band has undergone many changes in band members — in the early years, the group performed alongside Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, with members later joining Springsteen’s E Street Band. With a flourishing career spanning across decades, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue providing fans with their upbeat Jersey sound and rhythm and blues feel with hits like “Havin’ a Party,” “This Time It’s For Real” and “Talk To Me.”
