KOOL & THE GANG HITS RIVERS CASINO PITTSBURGH FOR SECOND TIME
Kool & The Gang to perform in The Event Center on June 20

PITTSBURGH — March 2, 2020 — R&B icons of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Kool & The Gang, best known for its smash hits “Jungle Boogie,” “Celebration” and “Get Down on It,” brings its iconic jazz, funk and R&B concert to The Event Center at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh for a second time on Saturday, June 20, at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $49.

Not only did Kool & The Gang dominate the R&B scene for many decades, its fierce horn lines and smooth sound have earned the group two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, the BET Soul Train Lifetime Achievement Award, 25 Top 10 R&B hits, nine Top 10 Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums. In addition to a stellar resume, Kool & The Gang has also been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and continues to be among the most sampled artists of all time.

In 2016, the East Coast natives resurfaced on the recording scene and released the single, “Sexy (Where’d You Get Yours),” which reached No. 15 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart. Kool & The Gang has toured alongside Kid Rock, Dave Matthews Band, Elton John, The Roots and Van Halen, and continue to perform around the world.

“Kool & The Gang’s 2019 show was the inaugural performance in our Event Center—and it was absolutely incredible,” said Shannon Redmond, vice president of marketing at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “We can’t wait to welcome them back for the second time in June. It’ll be another awesome show.”

Tickets for Kool & The Gang’s show and for all Rivers Casino Pittsburgh performances can be purchased at the Players Club or at RiversCasino.com/Pittsburgh.

In addition to live performances and concerts, The Event Center at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh can be reserved for a variety of occasions, including corporate receptions, seminars, trade shows, weddings and more. The space features theatre-style seating for over 2,000 people or up to 800 for sit-down functions, and an integrated pre-function area.
