Rivers Casino celebrates America's birthday with concerts and fireworks

16 April 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- There is no better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with a collection of concerts featuring some of the most iconic hits from an era of big hair and even bigger parties. Enjoy two nights of rock ‘n’ roll classics at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady on Tuesday, 3 July and Wednesday, 4 July. Tuesday night will boast performances from legendary Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil and 80’s Glam Band tribute band Mullett in the Event Center, while Eagles tribute band Dark Desert Eagles will take the stage on 4 July in the Amphitheater.

After an epic 34-year run with Mötley Crüe, who has since retired, Vince Neil continues to perform the band’s classic hits and even some of his own solo album hits at venues all over the world. His natural talent and passion for performing will light up the Event Center on 3 July. Mullett, THE Premier Rockers for hair band fanatics, will be opening for Vince Neil that evening. Recreating classics from the '80s, Mullett captivates their audience with authentic sights and sounds from a generation that knew how to rock.

Self-proclaimed World’s Greatest Eagles Tribute band, Dark Desert Eagles, will delight the audience in the Amphitheater on the Fourth of July. They pride themselves on refashioning a genuine Eagles experience, including the amazing soaring harmonies, wardrobe, hairstyles and guitars. Dark Desert Eagles puts on a stunning and heartfelt tribute to a band with a timeless repertoire. The show will end with a bang as Rivers displays fireworks right next to the Amphitheater.

The doors open at 7 p.m. on 3 July and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $35. The show on 4 July will begin at 7 p.m. and is free for all guests. Fireworks will be at 9 p.m.

Tickets for the Mullett and Vince Neil show are available for purchase online at or through Proctors Box Office.

The Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Event Center is just steps away from the casino gaming floor, as well as The Landing Hotel, which will be welcoming guests for the holiday celebration.
