The Ocean City Music Pier will welcome two great acts this week, with Jackie Evancho performing with the Ocean City Pops on Sunday, August 27, and George Thorogood and the Destroyers rocking out on Monday and Tuesday, August 28 and 29.
Evancho first dazzled American television audiences in 2010 at the age of 10 with her stunning debut on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
Since then, she has released a string of platinum and gold albums with sales of over 2.5 million in the U.S. All six of her albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart.
She has performed with the Ocean City Pops twice before and has become a local favorite. Her show starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are available at oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice, 609-399-6111, or the Music Pier Box Office.
George Thorogood and the Destroyers have rocked the region for decades with a high-energy bluesy show and hits like “Bad to the Bone” and “I Drink Alone.”
Only one show had been originally scheduled, but a second was added due to demand for tickets. Both shows start at 7 p.m. Check the Music Pier Box Office for ticket availability or visit Ticketmaster.
At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 23, future opera stars will join Maestro Vince Lee and the Ocean City Pops for a concert that has become an annual tradition. Tickets are available at oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice, 609-399-6111 or the Music Pier Box Office.
