JUNE 2017 FEATURED ENTERTAINMENT
52 Fridays Concert Series in the Golden Nugget Showroom
Golden Nugget Las Vegas has raised the standard for entertainment in downtown Las Vegas with its acclaimed 52 Fridays Concert Series. The resort presents a diverse lineup of weekly acts, from GRAMMY award-winning pop artists to rock and roll royalty.
Herman's Hermits - June 2
Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone dominated the '60s along with such big names as the The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Beginning in England, April 1, 1964, the group has recorded more than 23 hit singles, 10 hit albums and 3 major movies. Their top hits include "Mrs. Brown (You've Got a Lovely Daughter)" "Silhouettes," "Dandy," and "Henry VIII."
Gary Lewis & The Playboys - June 9
Gary Lewis & the Playboys were an American '60s-era pop and rock group, fronted by musician Gary Lewis, the son of comedian Jerry Lewis. They are best known for their 1965 Billboard Hot 100 number-one single "This Diamond Ring," which was the first of a string of hit singles they had in 1965 and 1966. The band had an earnest, boy-next-door image similar to British invasion contemporaries such as Herman's Hermits and Gerry and the Pacemakers. The group folded in 1970, but a version of the band later resumed touring and continues to tour, often playing for veteran's benefits.
April Wine - June 16
'70s and '80s rock sensations April Wine began their impressive journey in 1969 when they formed in Nova Scotia. Their first studio hit, "Fast Train" propelled them to international stardom. They went on to record 15 studio albums, three live releases, and perform thousands of concerts. April Wine's most memorable hits include "You Could Have Been a Lady," "Just Between You and Me," and "If you Believe in Me."
The Buckinghams - June 23
After changing their name from The Pulsations to The Buckinghams to reflect the British Invasion craze, this American Sunshine pop group became an overnight sensation. The group put out the wistful "Kind of a Drag," which ended up being a million-selling pop chart-topper. Other major hits for the band include "Don't You Care," "Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song)," and the pseudo-psychedelic "Susan." The group showed off their R&B roots on the jazz standard "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," their second-biggest hit.
Foghat - June 30
"Move to the music, we can move all night." Boogie-blues rockers Foghat will take fans on a journey through their favorite hits including "Slow Ride," "Drivin' Wheel," "I Just Want to Make Love to You," and more. The group, which has performed together for more than 40 years, has earned eight gold albums, one platinum album, and one double platinum album. The band's rollicking performances have garnered it lifelong fans from around the world.
