ANDERSON — There will be even more “money” than usual at Hoosier Park Casino this weekend as rock ‘n‘ roller Eddie Money will be in the house performing two sold-out Saturday evening shows.
Money is embarking on a new adventure next month as his autobiographical musical, “Two Tickets to Paradise,” comes to life.
In a recent phone interview, Money talked about how the musical came to fruition
“Two Tickets to Paradise,” which he dubs as his bread-and-butter song, along with songs from his 15 albums recorded during his career will be presented June 4-14 at Dix Hills Performing Arts Center at Five Towns College in Long Island, N.Y.
Money, a member of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, which boasts members like Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Carole King, Mariah Carey, Neil Sedaka, Neil Diamond, Joan Jett, KISS and Barbra Streisand, would like for his family’s sake to get that invitation to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
“It would be very nice for my kids, it’s very important to them,’’ Money said. “This play about my life is my swan song,” said Money, who said he might plan to retire if he played a better game of golf.
Money will narrate the premier performances with the hope that even in a sagging economy the show might be picked up by Broadway.
“What started out as a hobby has now turned into a job,’’ said Money, referring to the musical. “It is a lot of script to learn, I wish I hadn’t written so much.”
The story goes back in time to the ’60s during the Vietnam War when Money decides to quit the New York Police Department to head to California hoping to make it big in the rock and roll industry.
