Eddie Money

7 and 9 p.m., Thursday, September 13. Bottleneck Blues Bar, Ameristar Casino, 1260 South Main Street, St. Charles.


Eddie Money may be the luckiest man in show business. No embarrassed has-been or frustrated artiste here: For three decades he's been perfectly happy to hit the stage, inquire "Where's The Party?" and attempt to bring said party with "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Baby Hold On," and other selections from a surprisingly hit-heavy back catalog. (We should all be so content.) He's got a lot of love for St. Louis, too: When the RFT interviewed him a few years ago, he spoke of his friendship with Tony La Russa and reflected, "If St. Louis had a rock hall of fame, I'd be in there." Perhaps Joe Edwards will give him a star along Delmar someday. Until then, local fans can at least count on a spirited live show.
