  • Gipsy Kings

    Friday, September 5

    Due to overwhelming demand, French super-group, the Gipsy Kings, will return to Revel Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall with their signature progressive and virtuosic flamenco on Friday, September 5. Showtime is 8pm. It has been twenty-five years since the Gipsy Kings captured the world's imagination with their self-titled debut album—a record that became a genuine phenomenon, certified gold and platinum around the globe. The record introduced millions of listeners to the Gipsy King’s unique, irresistible blend of traditional flamenco styles with Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the band has toured virtually non-stop, to the farthest-flung corners of the planet, and sold almost twenty million albums, all the while retaining the same line-up of virtuoso musicians. The Gipsy Kings will return to Revel to perform SAVOR FLAMENCO, their ninth studio album and first new release in six years. The project marks the first time in their storied career that the Kings have produced themselves and written all of the material. Over the years, the music of the Kings incorporated elements of Latin and Cuban styles, Arabic music, reggae, and jazz guitar reminiscent of the French Gypsy master Django Reinhardt. Yet, as heard on the new album, they have never lost their intense connection to the traditional flamenco of their heritage, keeping a spotlight on Tonino Baliardo's fluid guitar work and Nicolas Reyes's powerful vocals. This broad cultural mix has enabled the Gipsy Kings to be embraced wherever they play—from China to Brazil, New Orleans to Russia, Australia to Africa. Tickets are $65, $85 and $125 and go on sale April 11. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.

  • Sublime with Rome

    Friday, July 11

    Sublime with Rome, the musical collaboration of former Sublime band members and guitarist Rome Ramirez, will perform at Ovation Hall at Revel on Friday, July 11, at 8 p.m. Over twenty years after forming legendary ska-punk band Sublime, band co-founder/bass player Eric Wilson met another singer/guitarist that would deeply affect his life. That musician was Rome Ramirez. In Wilson's own words, "this kid could play guitar like a mofo and he's got a platinum voice." Incidentally, Wilson had previously reserved that same description for his former Sublime bandmate, the late Bradley Nowell. Formed in Long Beach, CA, in 1988, Sublime delivered an irresistible blend of ska, reggae, punk, surf rock, and hip-hop that captured the imagination of fans around the world. Over the course of its three albums -- 1992's double-platinum "40oz. to Freedom," 1994's gold "Robbin' the Hood," and 1996's 6x-platinum self-titled major-label debut -- the band has sold more than 17 million albums worldwide. Nowell died of a drug overdose two months prior to the release of "Sublime," which reached No. 13 on the Billboard Top 200, sold six million copies, and spawned such hits as "What I Got," "Santeria," and "Wrong Way," which remain radio staples across the country. Profoundly affected by Nowell's death, Wilson never considered performing the group's music live without their frontman. It took the talent and enthusiasm of Rome Ramirez -- a genial, 25-year-old newcomer and gifted songwriter and musician -- to change that. Tickets are $35, $45 and $55 and go on sale March 28 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.

  • The Fab Faux

    Saturday, October 25

    With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles' repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles). Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like "Strawberry Fields Forever" or "I Am the Walrus" performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as "Because", "Nowhere Man", and "Paperback Writer", reproduced not only note- for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect. The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality five of the hardest working musicians in NYC – completely up-ends the concept of a Beatles tribute band. Far beyond being extended sets of cover versions, their astounding shows are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles’ musical magic, as The Fab Faux tackles the group’s most demanding material live onstage in a way that has to be experienced to be believed. Tickets start at $30 and go on sale March 14 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

  • Death Cab for Cutie

  • The Avett Brothers

    Saturday, June 7

    “The Avett Brothers will take the stage in Ovation Hall on Saturday, June 7th. The Avett Brothers begin another new era of folk with their seventh full-length album, and first for American Recordings/Republic Records, The Carpenter. Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin and recorded in North Carolina and Malibu, it's an artful distillation of classic homegrown folk, rock energy, bluegrass soul and pop charm. In 2009, the group made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year. In addition to touring tirelessly, they gave memorable performances on the Late Show with David Letterman, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as well as during a feature spot on the PBS series Austin City Limits. In 2001, banjoist Scott Avett and guitarist Seth Avett formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob Crawford. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad's record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Since then, they've become genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007's acclaimed Emotionalism. However, The Carpenter is the group's richest and most rewarding record yet. The next chapter for The Avett Brothers has commenced. Tickets start at $45 and go on sale March 14 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

  • Alice in Chains

    Friday, May 9

    Revel is pleased to announce hard-rock band, Alice in Chains, will bring their tour to Ovation Hall on Friday, May 9, at 9 p.m. Opening for the rockers will be Canadian rock group, Monster Truck. In the style of Black Sabbath and "dark rock," Alice in Chains' heavy metal acoustical style overlays an undercurrent of doomsday and nihilistic themes, a fascination with death and drugs which nonetheless, after their debut with Facelift in 1990, lifted them to platinum status in 1992 with their second album, Dirt. The undercover tension between vocalist Layne Staley and guitarist Jerry Cantrell was enough to keep Alice off the road circuit and very nearly caused the disbanding of the group. But, with their release of "Would?" in the summer of 1992, Alice in Chains was repackaged as an alternative band, "Would?" being followed later that fall by their album "Dirt." By the end of 1993, Alice had another platinum record under their belts. Despite internal conflicts, Alice in Chains joined the 1993 Lollapolooza Tour, and released "Jar of Flies" in 1994. The subsequent years, studio sequestered, brought about a third album in 1995 "Alice in Chains," which featured the textural wizardry of Jerry Cantrell, though maintained the same despairing lyrical themes of despair. In 1996 Alice finally appeared publicly performing for, and cutting as an album, an episode for MTV Unplugged. Tickets start at $49 and go on sale January 31 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.

  • Morrissey

    Friday, June 6

    Globally-renowned recording and performing artist Morrissey will embark on an extensive U.S. Tour on May 7. The tour will stop at Revel Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall on Friday, June 6, affirming the artist’s unique relationship with his fans built on a 30-year recording and performing career that enables him to command the stage at venues of every kind. Showtime is 8 p.m. Morrissey’s special guest on all dates will be singer, songwriter and keyboardist Kristeen Young, with Tom Jones joining Morrissey as support artist in Los Angeles and Sir Cliff Richard as support artist in New York City. The tour dates will come on the heels of Morrissey’s completion of his forthcoming Harvest Records debut album – the artist’s first since 2009’s Years Of Refusal -- recorded in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli. Joining Morrissey on tour will be his longtime band, including Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums) and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards). Morrissey's recent Autobiography became one of the fastest-selling memoirs in the UK upon its release in October and set first-week sales records when it entered the UK charts at #1 (a slot it held for five weeks). Its release also marked the first time a living author had been published by Penguin Classics in the imprint’s nearly-70-year history. Autobiography has been widely acclaimed, with The Telegraph calling it “the best written musical autobiography since Bob Dylan’s Chronicles” in its 5-star review. Morrissey’s solo career began in 1988, after the dissolution of The Smiths, with the release of Viva Hate. His influence on music and culture has continued to grow over the past 25 years through the release of nine globally acclaimed studio albums and an array of singles, rarities collections and live recordings. He is renowned as one of the world’s most legendary and influential performing artists of all time, recently exemplified in last year’s concert film, Morrissey 25: Live, recorded in March 2013 at a rare intimate show at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles. The Independent famously wrote that "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime" and Pitchfork regards him as "one of the most singular figures in Western popular culture.” Tickets start at $55 and go on sale February 21 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.

  • Walk Off The Earth

    Friday, May 23

    Canadian rock band and viral sensation, Walk Off The Earth, is set to take the stage at The Social at Revel on Friday, May 23, at 9 p.m. Walk Off The Earth (WOTE) formed 6 years ago in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, releasing two full-length albums and several singles independently. The band began creating low-budget YouTube videos that quickly resulted in an ever-growing fan base all over the world. The band is no stranger to attracting fans, or "Wote-lings," with their unique homemade videos. They hit upon something special when they decided to shoot their videos all in one take, originally a necessity in order to film and edit their videos quickly. The band's axis shifted in 2012 when a cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" went viral on YouTube. Recorded and filmed in band member Gianni's kitchen, the now-infamous video shows all five members playing, in unconventional ways, one guitar. The song earned 4 million views in one day, and won praise from celebrities like Russell Crowe and Justin Timberlake, and even Gotye. The band quickly broke away from the path of a typical viral YouTube sensation, and it is clear that WOTE are much more. Walk Off The Earth now has over 300,000,000 views in total on their channel. And they certainly have a lot to share with the world. The band’s debut album for Columbia Records, "R.E.V.O" is an acronym for "Realize Every Victory Outright." For the band, it also represents a revolution, a call for listeners to stay positive and keep striving for their goals. The album’s hit song, “Red Hands” was the first song penned by all members of the group since solidifying their current line-up and it is downright anthemic. The drumbastic chorus has such thrust it'll have you thinking, "This is a band that wants to be heard." Tickets start at $28 and go on sale February 14 at noon. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.
