VALLEY FORGE CASINO RESORT WELCOMES CANADIAN ROCKERS BARENAKED LADIES TO VALLEY FORGE MUSIC FAIR ON APRIL 22ND

King of Prussia, PA –Valley Forge Casino Resort (1160 First Avenue) welcomes Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies to Valley Forge Music Fair on Saturday, April 22, 2017. The band is still together after nearly three decades, producing 14 studio albums which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies, won eight Juno Awards, earned multiple Grammy nominations, a U.S. chart-topping single (“One Week”) and the theme song to one of TV’s most popular shows, “The Big Bang Theory.”  Doors open of The Event Center at 7:00pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. Ticket prices range from $40-$65 and are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.

“Valley Forge Casino Resort is pleased to welcome hitmakers Barenaked Ladies,” said VFCR CEO/President Eric Pearson. “After so many years on the road, these Canadian rockers are showing no signs of slowing down – with new music, big crowds and electric excitement. They are a welcome addition to Valley Forge Music Fair and our growing roster of music legends, award-winning artists and top sellers.”

The Canadian rock band’s latest album, BNL Rocks Red Rocks features some of the multi-platinum band’s biggest hits, including “One Week,” “Pinch Me, “If I Had $1,000,000” plus songs from their last two records including “Odds Are” which hit #2 at iTunes, and the most recent single “Duct Tape Heart” from their latest album Silverball. The record includes a special moment when Barenaked Ladies accompany Colin Hay to perform his #1 hit “Who Can It Be Now?,” joined on stage by Blaise Garza of Violent Femmes to cover the famed saxophone solo, recognized around the world! And in a tradition BNL followers have come to expect, a rousing encore cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” by Tyler Stewart with Ed Robertson on drums.

There’s a line in the Barenaked Ladies chart-topping hit, “One Week”, that says “Gotta see the show, ‘cause then you’ll know,” that couldn’t be more true of the Barenaked Ladies concert experience. Their concerts are an experience filled with the kind of energy, precision, finesse and outright celebration their fans have come to expect and are a tribute to Barenaked Ladies’ remarkable longevity.
“I don’t think there’s a secret,” Robertson explained to People magazine last year when asked how BNL managed to not just survive, but thrive, continuing to sell out venues wherever they go. “It’s work. You’ve got to respect each other, you got to give each other space, but you also have to support each other… This band learned early on to communicate, right from the beginning we didn’t want to burn out. We wanted to keep making music.”

Tickets for the Barenaked Ladies are on sale now on Ticketmaster.com and range from  $40-$65 each. For more information, please visit http://www.barenakedladies.com/.
