Eddie Money, a 1980s rock star, will play at the Secret City Festival in June, organizers said Thursday.
Money will be the Friday night headliner. Organizers announced earlier this month that Kix Brooks will headline the Saturday night show.
This year’s festival, the 12th annual celebration, will be June 13-14.
Money’s Top 40 hits include “Take Me Home Tonight,” “Baby Hold On,” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.” He has sold more than 28 million records and plays a “blue-collar brand of rock ‘n’ roll,” a press release said.
The Friday, June 13, show starts at 7 p.m. Local rock band Jada Blade will be the opening act.
“Money retains his signature style and performs with the same passion today as he did more than 30 years ago,” the press release said.
Money’s songs have appeared in dozens of movies and television shows, and have recently been included in hit video games like “Grand Theft Auto” and “Guitar Hero,” the release said.
Tickets may be purchased for the early bird price of $18, and they go on sale April 29. Tickets purchased after May 30 will be available for $20. All tickets can be purchased online at www.secretcityfestival.com, by phone at (865) 482-4432, or in person at the Oak Ridge Civic Center at 1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
