“CRDA is excited to partner with Live Nation to bring these popular artists to the Atlantic City beach this summer. This series of events will add to Atlantic City’s reputation as the Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore. We look forward hosting tens of thousands of fans and introducing them to all the great entertainment experiences Atlantic City has to offer,” said John Palmieri, executive director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA).
Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian said, “This is shaping up to be one fantastic summer at the Jersey Shore once again! We are welcoming back Live Nation to Atlantic City, and this time they have even more fun-packed shows to unveil on our beautiful beaches. For the past two years, the Atlantic City Beach Concerts have been beyond memorable to anyone who has attended them. There is nothing like mixing a beautiful beach, next to a fabulous ocean, underneath a shining sun with amazing sights and sounds all at once from Live Nation’s lineup of world-class entertainers. Atlantic City has it all. As Mayor of Atlantic City, I would like to personally invite you to come down and get some sand in your shoes this summer!”
