38 Special, David Spade Coming to Seneca Events Centers This Fall

The entertainment continues to roll in for the fall season at all three entertainment venues inside the Seneca Resorts & Casinos. The upbeat rock of 38 Special will take the Seneca Allegany Events Center back in time to the 1980s on Sunday, Sept. 14, while longtime comedian David Spade will have the crowd roaring at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, Oct. 25. In addition, a host of new acts are booked for the intimate 440-seat Bear’s Den Showroom in Niagara Falls this September and October, including The Lovin’ Spoonful, David Clayton-Thomas, Macy Gray, Gino Vannelli and Pete Best.

38 Special will deliver a quintessential 80’s rock concert on Sunday, Sept. 14 at Seneca Allegany Events Center. Tickets for the 5 p.m. performance start at just $20 and go on sale Friday, July 11 at noon. The band scored two No. 1 hits with “Caught Up in You” and “If I’d Been the One,” and topped the Adult Contemporary charts in 1989 with the ballad “Second Chance.”
