Hootie & the Blowfish coming to Niagara in May

Fallsview Casino to host popular rockers in Avalon Ballroom for two shows

Niagara Falls, ON – Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort will launch its first full summer tourism season with a pair of performances by post grunge-era rockers Hootie & the Blowfish.

The group – known in part for the rich lead vocals of front-man Darius Rucker – will perform in Fallsview’s Avalon Ballroom on Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7.

“I think there is always a desire to be strong out of the box when the start of the summer tourist season arrives,” said Larry L. Lewin, President, Niagara Casinos. “When we opened last summer, we brought in Paul Anka and then Barenaked Ladies right after. We’re doing the same thing this May with Hootie & the Blowfish. They’re a great band with a great sound. These tickets are going to be a hot item.”

And balcony seats start at just $59.50! A mere $79.50 for a spot on the floor!

Bonus coverage: Hootie fans (no really) debate that Burger King commercial.
