LEGENDARY ROCKER EDDIE MONEY TO PLAY GOBOWLING 400 PRE-RACE CONCERT
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Feb. 25, 2016) – While NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers are thinking about taking home the trophy for the GoBowling 400 on May 7, race fans will be rocking out to legendary rock icon Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight” prior to the race.
Rock icon Money is back on the road with an all-star band. A student of legendary vocal coach Judy Davis and prodigy of manager Bill Graham, Money began his career in the late 1970s belting out hit after hit. The early days of MTV and music videos launched Eddie Money into stardom. An accomplished musician, he sings, he writes, and plays the saxophone, harmonica and piano.
Money has recorded over a dozen albums of his own (selling over 28 million records), and has done numerous projects in television and film. Spring 2001's David Spade film "Joe Dirt" features Money as Joe Dirt's rock and roll idol. He also turned up as Mimi's ex-husband in an episode of "The Drew Carey Show". He's currently working on theme songs for Arena Football and Major League Baseball.
"Everything I do, I do it for you". Eddie Money says it at least once, every show. And he means it. This straight up rock and roll icon has been making music and delivering it to his fans since the mid 70's, and wouldn't have it any other way. With hits like "Two Tickets To Paradise", "Baby Hold On", "Walk On Water", "Think I'm In Love" and "Shakin", Money continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll.
