Between disappointing revenues and the wallop the Jersey Shore took from Hurricane Sandy, there's been plenty of talk about how Atlantic City's still shiny-and-new Revel resort is struggling to survive. In the battle to bring people back to the Boardwalk, however, the casino hotel that celebrated its grand opening with four nights of Beyonce on Memorial Day is still pulling in big name attractions still pulling in big name attractions on holiday weekend.
To wit, Kanye West will play three shows at Revel's Ovation Hall next month on December 28, 29, and 30. not actually on New Year's Eve, that is, but on the Friday through Sunday leading up to it. It's a return to Revel for Mr. West, who was also in South Jersey on July 4 weekend. Read my review of one of those two shows here. West is also on board for the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy benefit at Madison A.C., with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and a host of others.
Tickets for West at Revel go on sale November 30 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
