Eddie Money will be kicking off his 2019 dates later this week. Money will play a pair of Washington shows, hitting Suquamish's Squamish Clearwater Casino Resort on Friday (January 11th) and Toppenish's Yakama Legends Casino on Saturday (January 12th).
Shows already on the books include stops in Hinckley, Minnesota; Larchwood, Iowa; Westbury, New York — for a double bill with John Waite; Reading, Pennsylvania; Rahway, New Jersey; and Shipshewana, Indiana.
Additional dates will be announced soon. Money also recently posted on social media that his AXS TV reality show, Real Money, will be back for a new season in 2019.
Eddie Money told us that he still lives for the road and hits the ground running every night on tour: ["It’s a great show, it’s really fantastic. I start off with, 'Baby Hold On. . .' Well, y'know, I had 14 songs in the Top 100. The big guy upstairs has been very good to me in that angle.”] SOUNDCUE (:09 OC: . . . in that angle)
Money says he didn't mind that he was never deemed a rock superstar like his original Columbia Records labelmates such as Aerosmith, Billy Joel, and Bruce Springsteen, despite his string of 1970's and '80s hits: ["But y'know what, at that point in my career, getting to play with Santana at Madison Square Garden, or doing all those big shows — or getting to open up for the Rolling Stones, or play with the Who at the Silverdome in Detroit. I couldn't really bitch and moan. It got to the point that we were shipping gold. And I was doing a show, in the old days, I was doing a 75 minute show for a $1,000 a minute, (laughs) pretty good money, y'know?"] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . good money y'know)
