CLEARWATER - Rock icon Eddie Money brings his acoustic show to the Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m.
The tour, "Unplug it In...Again" is named after his only acoustic release from the 90s and features two guitarists, one doubling on percussion. Expect the hits, and yes some surprises, such as Money on piano, that you won't see in the electric show.
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 more than a dozen albums of his own (selling more than 28 million records), and has done numerous projects in television and film. Spring 2001s David Spade film Joe Dirt features Eddie Money as Joe Dirt's rock and roll idol and in 1999 he 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," 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-70s, 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 Shakiní, Eddie continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll.
Tickets are priced at $45, $35, and $25 and available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office and the Capitol Theatre Box Office, by calling 727-791-7400 and online at www.RuthEckerdHall.com or www.AtTheCap.com.
