Eddie Money

7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Friday, March 2. Lumière Place Casino, 999 North Second Street.



Don't hate the RFT for the number of days you will now have "Take Me Home Tonight" stuck in your head. Blame Eddie Money. Since the pop maestro's heyday roughly three decades ago, he has wormed his way into both ears and the charts with all the glory and shamelessness of a John Hughes prom scene. The man did, after all, strike his mainstream comeback in the late 1980s. After releasing modern radio staples such as "Two Tickets to Paradise" and "Baby Hold On," Mr. Money cashed in on his success early

and used it to buy drugs before returning to the rock revival circuit with fervor when his songwriting career ended in the Nirvana years.

Homework: Google live photos of Eddie Money. Then Google Meatloaf. Separated at birth?
