Special Sunday Night Concerts

Resurrection - A Journey Tribute, is considered to be 'The Gold Standard' by which all Journey tributes are measured. I have seen them and they are the real deal! They will hit the stage at 6 pm as the opener for another amazing tribute band.

Hotel California, The Original Eagles Tribute Band

Hotel California is an Eagles tribute band that has been performing for over 30 years. Hotel California has shared the stage with The Doobie Bros., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gretchen Wilson, REO Speedwagon, and many more. From Japan to Dubai, Toronto to Texas, Hotel California has boldly taken the tribute band where none had gone before them, and changed an industry’s collective mind about how good a “tribute” band could really be.

Advanced reserved seat tickets for the concert are available now at or in person at the Gibson County Visitors and Tourism Bureau located at 702 West Broadway, Princeton, IN.

  • $15 reserved seat concert ticket

General admission concert tickets will be included with the gate entry fee on the day of the concert, Sunday, April 7, for $5 per person.
