(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey presents Tusk & EagleMania on Friday, September 16 at 8:00pm. These are two of the hottest tribute bands around on one bill. If you're a fan of Fleetwood Mac or the Eagles, this is a show you won't want to miss. Tickets range from $25-$55.
Tusk, the number one tribute to Fleetwood Mac in the world, covers the greatest hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, and others over the years. The five seasoned musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over 25 years. Now they are the best Fleetwood Mac tribute band and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, Tusk leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.
EagleMania: The World’s Greatest Eagles Tribute has been dazzling audiences for over a decade with their stunning five-part harmony, virtuoso guitar work, and uncanny ability to emulate the distinct sound of The Eagles. The EagleMania show consists of the Eagles’ greatest hits, as well as songs from the solo careers of Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Joe Walsh.
