Hard Rock Atlantic City Brings Word-Class Entertainment to the Jersey Shore

Country superstar and three-time Grammy Award-winner, Tim McGraw, will take the stage Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena on February 1 and 2 to perform a variety of his greatest hits.

“A lot of artists can tell you how they feel,” says Tim McGraw, “but when somebody can tell you how you feel, and you didn’t know it or couldn’t put it into words, that’s the goal. What you want to do as an artist is let someone discover how they feel from your music, in a really visceral way, from the inside out.”

For twenty years, McGraw has been providing that kind of powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity.

In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold over 40 million albums, and dominated the charts with 32 #1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as The Blind Side, Country Strong, and Friday Night Lights—as well as hosting Saturday Night Live, a rare honor for a singer in any genre.

Up next is New Jersey crooner Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons on Feb. 8 & 9 at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.  Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,”  “Walk Like a Man,”  “Rag Doll,” and  “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are all the rage all over again.

On March 22 and 23, Motown legend and American Idol judge, Lionel Richie continues Xperience Hard Rock—an exclusive concert series featuring repeat performances that can only be seen in Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena.

His song catalog also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a groundbreaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as “Three Times a Lady,”  “Still,” and “Easy.” Lionel Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honor of having #1 records for nine consecutive years.
