Fergie heads to Fallsview in September
Dancefloor icon Fergie is headed to Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort for two shows in September.
The eight-time Grammy winner and one-time member of pop juggernaut Black Eyed Peas takes the stage at the Avalon Ballroom Sept. 18 and 19. Tickets start at $150.
After racking up multiple hits with the Black Eyed Peas, including dance classics “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” and “My Humps,” the former child star went solo in 2007 with the album “The Dutchess.” It spawned three No. 1 singles: “London Bridge,” “Glamorous” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” The long-awaited followup, “Double Dutchess,” was released last year but wasn’t met with the same success.
Also coming to Fallsview in September is ’70s and ’80s rocker Eddie Money Sept. 7. Among his classic rock staples are “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Baby Hold On” and “Take Me Home Tonight.” Tickets start at $35.
The Gipsy Kings, with Nicho- las Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, perform Sept. 21 ($55).
September will also have two extended runs: The Latin-flavoured dance show “Conga” Sept. 25 to 30 ($30), and the Tonywinning “Million Dollar Quartet,” about the 1956 chance encounter between Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis ($35).
Tickets for all shows are available at the Fallsview box office and www.ticketmaster.ca.
