Borgata Adds Hall & Oates, David Cook And Rick Springfield To It’s March Enterainment Lineup


Atlantic City, NJ (January 27, 2009) — Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa today announced the addition of Hall & Oates (March 14, 2009), David Cook (March 20 & 21, 2009) and Rick Springfield (March 28, 2009), to its entertainment lineup.

Tickets for all music and comedy performances at Borgata can be purchased through, or call 866-900-4TIX (4849).

Hall & Oates
Event Center
Saturday, March 14 – 8p.m.
$85; $65; $50

One of the most successful duos in rock history will be at Borgata’s Event Center on Saturday, March 14. Daryl Hall and John Oates started working together in the early 1970’s and have gone on to sell over 60 million albums. Their impressive collection contains a total of eight #1 hit singles along with dozens of classics from 1970’s through today, including Do It For Love, Rich Girl, Kiss On My List, Maneater, Private Eyes, I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do), Sara Smile, She’s Gone and One On One. In 2004 Hall and Oates put out “Our Kind of Soul,” a collection of 14 acoustic covers of 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s soul hits along with three original tracks. While much of the duo’s reputation is due to its sustained pop-chart run in the 1980s, Hall & Oates are also respected for their ability to cross style boundaries. To this day, I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do) is one of the most-sampled songs by R&B and hip-hop groups over the last twenty-five years, being referenced by acts from Heavy D & the Boyz to Tamia to 2 Live Crew.

David Cook
The Music Box
Friday, March 20 – 9p.m.
Saturday, March 21 – 9p.m.

Deemed “the most imaginative American Idol talent to date” by Rolling Stone Magazine, David Cook will perform two shows at The Music Box on March 20 and 21 to promote his debut self-titled album, released in November 2008.

Cook entered the Billboard charts at #3 with David Cook (19 Recordings / RCA Records). The Rob Cavallo produced album also debuted as the #1 album on the digital album chart and is the best debut from an American Idol winner since 2006. The first single, “Light On,” dominated the AOL Top 40 radio chart with eight (non consecutive) weeks at #1.

“I’m more than excited to hop on the road and support this record. This tour represents both a new beginning and a return to form for me,” said Cook. “It’s our first full tour, and we’re all ready to pour whatever blood, sweat, and tears that we can muster into making this show, and every show from here on out, an experience. Part of that experience is bringing back this college tour idea. There’s something inherently nostalgic about playing college shows. So many amazing acts used to do it, so it’s nice to be able to bring that ideal back, in some small way. And besides, touring on a bus beats what we used to do, which was cram five guys into a seven passenger van for one show, 13 hours away… ”

Cook’s first single, “The Time of My Life” recently went platinum, with over one million tracks sold. “The Time of My Life” is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show’s history. Cook is the 34th American Idol contestant to appear on a Billboard chart.

Cook kicked off 2009 by performing for troops during a USO tour. He visited seven different bases, singing songs off his self-titled album.

Rick Springfield
The Music Box
Saturday, March 28 – 9p.m.

Best known for his mainstream power pop of the 1980’s and his role as the young, eligible Dr. Noah Drake on the hit daytime show General Hospital, Rick Springfield will be at The Music Box on Saturday, March 28. Having sold over 19 million records, charted 17 Top 40 hits and performed for millions of fans over the last three decades, Springfield’s unstoppable energy dazzles anyone lucky enough to experience the Australian pop rock sensation. In 1982 Springfield won a Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for “Jessie’s Girl” off the album Working Class Dog, which achieved multi-platinum success.

As an actor, Rick Springfield had several guest roles in TV series such as The Incredible Hulk, The Rockford Files, and The Young and the Restless, before his defining role in General Hospital (1981-1983). In December of 2005, Springfield returned to General Hospital to play Dr. Noah Drake after a twenty-three year hiatus and continues to act as a recurring character.
