More and more tours are finding themselves being routed into the music venues of casino resorts. The Borgata Hotel Casino and spa in Atlantic City, NJ, is a good example. The Eagles recently performed at this venue on July 17 and 19.
The latest big name act to be added to the Borgata Event Center lineup is legendary rock band The Who, whose October 31 performance will be one of only a handful the band will perform this year.
Tickets for the one-night only concert are $97, $275 and $325, and can be purchased through the Borgata website.
The Borgata has become the latest big name venue in Atlantic City, hosting artists such as Aretha Franklin, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stone Temple Pilots, Chris Rock, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, John Mayer and New Kids on the Block on the summer/fall schedule.
