Desert Diamond: Foghat
Friday, February 23, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm MST
‘70s rock group, Foghat, is making a stop at Desert Diamond Casino’s Diamond Center on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2018. Tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. and are available through Star Tickets and at Desert Diamond Casino’s Rewards Center. Tickets start at $15. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
Formed in 1971 when Lonesome Dave Peverett and Roger Earl left the British blues-rock band, Savory Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record, and one Double-Platinum record. Their best-known single, “Slow Ride,” is a hit for multiple generations—from younger listeners who play Guitar Hero III, to the “Dazed and Confused” generation of those in their 30s and 40s, to the “boomers” who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8 track.
The music of Foghat is timeless and the energy of their live performances makes their shows entertaining for all ages. The band continues to tour throughout the year, citing their love of playing as the reason they won’t stop anytime soon. Recently, Foghat released “Under the Influence,” a new album that was three years in the making and includes a special recording of “Slow Ride” to celebrate the song’s 40th anniversary.
Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “Everyone loves ‘Slow Ride’ and this is your chance to see it performed live! Tickets to see famed rockers Foghat go on sale Dec. 23 and start at only $15!”
