Ads Host Giffins, Village People
Dec 2, 2010
Milwaukee, WI—The first game in the Admirals Concert Series takes place this Friday night when the Ads play host the Grand Rapids Griffins at 7:00 pm at the Bradley Center, followed by a post-game concert with disco legends the Village People, sponsored by Time Warner Cable, Lee Jeans, Miller Lite, and Toyota. The concert is free with a game ticket.
In addition, there are still a limited number of on-ice passes available for sale for just $20. The on-ice passes allow fans exclusive access to watch the concert from ice level directly in front of the stage, however, they are not valid for admission to the game.
Since 1977, the Village People have been synonymous with dance music. The world disco icons have been entertaining crowds of all ages by combining energetic choreography and outrageous fun with singing and dancing for over 33 years. They have released 10 studio albums and have sold over 100 million records world-wide.
The band first clicked in 1977 with the single, “San Francisco (You Got Me)” and then “Macho Man” in 1978. “In the Navy” and “Y.M.C.A.” were global smashes, both peaking at number two on the pop charts. Overall, the Village People have had five songs reach the Billboard Hot 100. World-wide sensations during disco’s heyday, the Village People have not lost a beat, touring all over the world in the past few years.
The Village People are no strangers to performing after Admiral games, playing concerts on two separate occasions during the 1990’s.
The next show in the Admirals Concert Series will take place on FM106/Miller Lite Country Music Night on Friday, January 28th when the team welcomes multi-platinum recording artist Rodney Atkins for a post-game concert.
