After signing a recording contract with Columbia Records, Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977. The album, which went double platinum, featured the hits “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.”
The Brooklyn, New York native followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the era’s most creative videos for songs like “Think I’m in Love” and “Shakin.” In 1986, Money released Can’t Hold Back, which featured the classic, Grammy-nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight.” The song reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went platinum and also featured the hit single “I Wanna Go Back.”
This year will mark Money’s 27th consecutive year as the venue’s perennial season opener, dating back to 1992. In recent years, Money has been joined on tour by his daughter, Jesse, who provides back-up vocals and adds an exciting twist to the duet “Take Me Home Tonight.” The show also includes performances from sons Dez on guitar and Julian on drums.
Premiering Sunday, April 8, Money will star in AXS TV’s new reality series, Real Money. The half-hour program follows the daily lives of Money with his wife Laurie, their five kids and eight pets, and includes candid moments of his life on the road and at home. It is as honest and open as it is heartfelt and hilarious. The 10 episodes of Real Money will regularly air on Sundays at 9:30 p.m. ET.
Money also sat down with the award-winning newsman Dan Rather for his AXS TV show, The Big Interview, to talk about his career and achievements. The interview will air Tuesday, March 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
