Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes add Greensboro, Asheville dates in 2019
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the long-lived New Jersey rock band that emerged from the same shore music scene as their pal and contemporary Bruce Springsteen, will play concerts in Asheville and Greensboro in early 2019. They’ll perform at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville on February 17, and The Carolina Theatre in Greensboro on March 2. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday at noon at bnpresents.com.
For Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes – ‘comfortable’ has never been a word associated with their brand of raucous, roots-tinged rock and bluesy reverie. The Jukes have more than 30 albums on their resume, thousands of acclaimed live performances across the globe, and a vibrant legacy of classic songs that have become “hits” to their large and famously-dedicated fan base.
With a decades-long successful career, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to deliver their soul-searing brand of raucous blues and R&B, with material mined from their many albums, featuring hits like “I Don’t Want To Go Home”, “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town”, “The Fever”, “This Time It’s For Real”, “Talk To Me” and their definitive fun-time cover of “We’re Having A Party”. The Jukes’ legendary high-energy live performances always satisfy with their classic blend of Stax-influenced R&B and gritty, Stonesy rock and roll.
