Tower of Power returning to perform Saturday, August 11 at River City Casino

Bay Area funk band Tower of Power will return to St. Louis this summer to perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 11 at River City Casino's Event Center.

Founded in 1968 in Oakland, CA, TOP (pictured) will celebrate their 50th anniversary this year. Their most recent recording is a box set from their 40th anniversary tour, which was released on CD/DVD in 2011 and on Blu-Ray in 2012. Their last performance in the St. Louis area was in February 2017, also at River City.

Tower of Power also made national news in January of last year when drummer David Garibaldi and substitute bassist Marc van Wageningen were seriously injured in a freak train accident before a gig at Yoshi's in Oakland. Fortunately, both men survived, the band continued to work with substitute drummer Herman Matthews, and Garibaldi was recovered and back playing with TOP again before the year was over.

Tickets for Tower of Power at River City Casino are priced from $40 to $50 and will go on sale starting at 10:00 a.m. today at the casino, by phone at 800-745-3000 and via Ticketmaster.
