Eddie Money and The Greg Billings and Geoff Abraham Duo
The Capitol Theatre presents Eddie Money on Thursday, May 10 at 8 pm with special guest The Greg Billings/Geoff Abraham Duo. Eddie Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977. Fans immediately fell in love with Money’s sound, and the album, which went double platinum, featured hits like Baby Hold On and Two Tickets to Paradise. Money followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the era’s most creative videos for songs like Think I’m in Love and Shakin. In 1986, Money released Can’t Hold Back, which featured the classic, GRAMMY®-nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, Take Me Home Tonight. The song reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went platinum and also featured the hit I Wanna Go Back.
These days, Money continues to delight new and old fans alike at venues throughout the country. Having opened the summer concert season at the famous DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit for nearly 20 years, Money draws fans from all over who are eager to see the legendary musician. Ask any concert attendee and they’ll tell you he retains his signature style and performs with the same passion today as he did more than 30 years ago.
