Aerosmith, Hagar to rock Boardwalk Hall

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for the Aug. 28 rave-up headlined by Aerosmith and featuring opening act Sammy Hagar & The Wabos.

The date is just one of 18 on Aerosmith’s upcoming, “Cocked, Locked, Ready to Rock” tour, which is not slated to hit Philly.

And speaking of being “locked,” nothing is official, but the smart money says Hagar will be spending some of his down time at the just-opened Sammy Hagar’s Beach Bar at Bally’s Atlantic City. After all, it’s hard to imagine the leather-lunged rocker would disappoint Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. poobah Don Marrandino who, in addition to being in charge of all four of the company’s AyCee properties (including Bally’s), is one of Hagar’s best buds.

Show time is 7:30. Admission is $195, $125, $89.50 and $59.50. To order tickets, go to www.livenation.com. VIP packages (which, according to a Live Nation press release, may include opportunities to meet band members, backstage tours, early entry passes, premium seating and/or merchandise) are available through www.aeroForceOne.com or by calling 508-791-3807.
