With a legendary career spanning over 40 years, Eddie Money has long-established himself as one of rock’s most beloved entertainers. Money’s journey to rock superstardom began in 1968 when he decided to follow his lifelong dreams of becoming a musician after serving as a New York City policeman for two years. Exchanging his native Brooklyn for the blossoming Berkeley music scene, Money tirelessly worked the local clubs until 1976 when a chance encounter with legendary producer Bill Graham changed his life forever. Under Graham’s guidance, he signed with Columbia Records and took the world by storm with his celebrated self-titled debut album—a double-platinum success featuring the signature Money singles “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets To Paradise.” His star continued to rise on the strength of a slew of smash albums, Top 40 hits including “Take Me Home Tonight,” “Shakin’,” “Think I’m In Love,” “I Wanna Go Back,” and many more, and over 28 million records sold.
Now, at 68 years old, Money continues to tour across the country where he enjoys performing to fans both old and new, putting his electric showmanship on full display backed by a talented band that includes his sons, Dez and Julian, and his daughter, Jess. When he’s not on the road, Eddie can be found spending time at home with Laurie, his wife of over 30 years; their five kids; and eight pets. He is currently working on a musical based on his life and career entitled “Two Tickets To Paradise.”
