Boone Hall Plantation and Chuck FM team up to present Freedom Rocks on Friday, July 5 on the back lawn of Boone Hall. Gates open at 6 p.m.
“Everything I do, I do it for you,” Eddie Money says it at least once, every show. And he means it. This straight up rock and roll icon has been making music and delivering it to his fans since the mid 70s, and wouldn’t have it any other way. With hits like “Two Tickets To Paradise,” “Baby Hold On,” “Walk On Water,” “Think I’m In Love” and “Shakin,” Money continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock and roll.
Performing a compact 150 or so shows every year, Money is always touring, somewhere. “My fans are the best, most loyal fans a guy could ask for. They keep coming back for more and I’m not gonna stop until they make me stop.”
Money is looking forward to playing Boone Hall. “Heard a lot of great things about the place. Very historic and it has that long drive (Avenue of the Oaks) into the property. Looking forward to playing there.” He prefers playing in the south. “The more and more I tour I love playing down south. There’s just something in the air down there. The ladies are all gorgeous and they get dressed up for concerts. The fans are great, the scenery, the weather and the golf courses make it great part of the country to be out on tour.”
Kicking off the show will be The Georgia Satellites. From their bar band roots to their chart-crashing megahits to their current tour of sold-out shows, The Georgia Satellites have kept the world moving to sweet, gritty, three-chord rock-n-roll. Founded in 1985 by Rick Richards, Rick Price, singer Dan Baird and drummer Mauro Magellan, the Satellites quickly launched into stardom on the back of rockers like “Keep Your Hands to Yourself.” “Battleship Chains,” “Hippy Hippy Shake” and others. Critically acclaimed albums and mind bending performances earned the boys a permanent spot in music history. Today, led by Price and Richards and joined by drummer Todd Johnston, they continue to perform in front of packed houses around the world with their blistering brand of Southern rock.
Boone Hall’s beautiful back lawn has become a popular venue to enjoy summer concerts and this event has the potential to deliver another solid show. Gates open at 6 p.m. on Friday July 5. The Georgia Satellites will perform at 7 p.m. and Eddie Money will take the stage around 9 p.m..
