The legendary rock band John Kay & Steppenwolf will perform in The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on Saturday, May 12, at 8 p.m.
Tickets (priced at $45/$55/$65) are on sale now via Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-653-8000. The Pavilion box office will also open at 1 p.m. on the day of the show for on-site ticket purchases and will call pickup.
Considered one of rock’s most enduring and respected bands, Steppenwolf has sold over 25 million records worldwide, released eight gold albums and collected 12 Billboard Hot 100 singles. Six of those singles were top 40 hits including “Born to Be Wild,” “Magic Carpet Ride,” “Rock Me,” and “Monster.”
Kay, a German-Canadian singer, songwriter and guitarist, became the front man of Steppenwolf after performing with The Sparrows, a blues rock and folks music group. He’s now in his fourth decade with the group.
Today’s Steppenwolf, operating without major-label financing, is the model of a successful cyber-age cottage industry. The band’s self-contained operation incorporates an in-house 24-track digital recording studio, as well as an extensive website – www.steppenwolf.com – that serves as a cyber-clubhouse for fans around the world. The website also functions as an outlet for Steppenwolf music, allowing fans easy access to the group’s recent work, as well as CD reissues of the entire Steppenwolf/John Kay album catalogue.
The band continues to generate vital new music, with a number of recording projects in the works, including the recent solo effort by Kay called “Heretics & Privateers.”
Additionally, the band will be releasing a 3-CD set entitled “Steppenwolf at 50” on March 16.
Steppenwolf’s dramatic and sometimes turbulent history recently became the subject of an episode of VH-1’s documentary series “Behind the Music.” That much-talked-about broadcast underlined the band’s ongoing stature and influence.
