Tickets for new shows go on sale July 16
After more than a year, Seneca Resorts & Casinos is bringing live entertainment back to Western New York with a pair of blockbuster shows in August. Ron White will perform in the Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, Aug. 21 (8 p.m.), and John Fogerty will rock the Seneca Allegany Events Center on Saturday, Aug. 28 (7 p.m.). Tickets for both shows go on-sale at 10 a.m. this Friday, July 16.
“We are thrilled to bring the magic and energy of live performances back to our stages,” said Christian Printup, senior executive director of entertainment and special events for Seneca Gaming Corp. “We are ready to rock, ready to laugh and ready to hear our guests’ cheers fill our performance venues again. We’re bringing live entertainment back to our Seneca Resorts & Casinos properties, and we’re bringing it back in a big way.”
White is a comedy legend who rose to fame as part of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour.” Known as the scotch-drinking, cigar-smoking funnyman, White has built a career by telling brutally honest stories brimming with punch lines and bursting with laughs. His popular stand-up routines have earned him multiple Grammy nominations; four No. 1 albums on the Billboard comedy charts; three top-rated, one-hour comedy specials; a book on the New York Times Best Seller List; CD and DVD sales in the tens of millions; and a place among the most popular and successful comedians in America.
This is an 18 years and older show. Tickets start at $35.
Fogerty is a true American treasure. As leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival, he forged a distinctive, groundbreaking sound all his own: equal parts blues, country, pop, rockabilly, R&B, swamp boogie and Southern fried rock ‘n’ roll – all united by his uniquely evocative lyrical perspective. Fogerty is a Grammy Award winner and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He is the only musician to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, for his song “Centerfield,” a staple at baseball stadiums across the country. Among Fogerty’s many hit songs, both as a solo artist and as leader of CCR, highlights include “Centerfield,” “Proud Mary,” “Susie Q,” “Fortunate Son,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain.”
Tickets start at $75.
