Pala Casino announces summer entertainment headliners

19 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The opening of Pala Casino Spa and Resort's newest amenity, its expansive swimming pool, bar and outdoor restaurant adult entertainment complex, remains right on target for Saturday, 19 May.

Plans to introduce the new entertainment elements are as big as the space itself. At 8 a.m., Saturday, 19 May, the pool, complete with waterfalls, fire places and day beds will open until 5 p.m., when the venue will be cleared to prepare for evening entertainment that will be provided by none other than the Red Rocker himself and the incomparable Sammy Hagar and The Circle, who will kick off Pala's Starlight Theater concert season at 7:30 p.m. that evening.

Tickets are available for $119, $109 and $99, and go on sale Friday, 2 March with no service charge at the Pala box office, the website or by calling 1-877-946-7252. Tickets are also available through Star Tickets or by calling 1-800-585-3737.

From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pala will be giving away $70,000 in cash prizes during its Dive Into Cash promotional drawings, when one person will be selected to win $20,000. In total, 39 winners will earn a share of $70,000 throughout the day. Players can earn drawing entries now during any visit to Pala by swiping their Privileges cards once daily at the Dive Into Cash kiosk in the casino and by playing slots, table games or live poker.

"The new elements will be added to what Pala is calling its 'adult entertainment complex,'" said Bill Bembenek, Pala's chief executive officer.

The project is designed to attract Southern Californians who are looking for a comprehensive adult recreational experience. The complex will include six pools and hot tubs, a poolside bar and restaurant, 14 poolside cabanas, Pala's 10,000-square-foot award winning spa, the 2,500-seat Starlight Theater and a unique underground Wine Cave, all of which are enveloped by Pala's 507-room Four-Diamond hotel.

"Our resort is comprehensive. Whether your aim is to relax, to be entertained or to dine, guests will be able to do all of those things, and you can do any of them either inside our spacious casino, hotel and restaurants or outdoors in our luxurious entertainment complex," Bembenek said.

Pala's Starlight Theater concert season which begins 19 May continues through September and will be its most extensive ever. During the first half of the season, in addition to Sammy Hagar and The Circle, tickets already are on sale for Huey Lewis and The News, $80, $70, $60, 26 May; Brian Setzer's Rockabiliy Riot!, $59, $49, $39, 2 June; R&B legends The Isley Brothers, $75, $65, $55, 9 June, and Kenny Loggins, $79.50, $69.50, $59.50, 6 July, at the aforementioned outlets.

Other confirmed performances are TajMo: The Taj Mahal & Keb' Mo' Band; Comedians Jo Koy and Russell Peters and Otis Day and the Knights Toga Party. Sale dates for those acts will be announced soon.

"The first half of our summer outdoor concert season is solid with a headliner performing each weekend other than Father's Day weekend. And the second half of the season is shaping up to be even more concentrated with fantastic headliner entertainment," Bembenek said.

Sammy Hagar and The Circle, which also includes Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, continue Sammy's rockin' Hall of Fame career, which started in the 1970s with the hard rock band Montrose. He then launched a successful solo career, scoring an enduring hit in 1984 with "I Can't Drive 55." He enjoyed commercial success when he replaced David Lee Roth as the lead singer of Van Halen in 1985, but left the band in 1996. He returned to Van Halen for a two-year reunion from 2003 to 2005. On 12 March 2007, Hagar was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Van Halen.
