One of reggaeton music’s most popular artists, Don Omar, will perform at Revel Casino Hotel’s Ovation Hall on Saturday, April 12, at 9 p.m.

Don Omar has a dynamic voice that seems to always rise above the rest. Although he is the king of reggaeton, he sees himself as a constant innovator and a versatile Urban Latin artist. He is a top-flight rapper who can hold his own with anyone in terms of flow, but he is also a devotee of melody, harmony, the use of instrumentation, and the spectacle of a live show. He loves and draws influence from salsa, merengue, bachata, bolero and even rock. Don Omar does it all –he raps, dances and sings.

Tickets start at $58 and go on sale February 7 at noon.  Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000.   


 

The City of Atlantic City and Atlantic City Free Public Library
announce the availability of a new digital historical
resource featuring the commemorative markers located throughout Atlantic
City. These markers share the history of Atlantic City and the stories
of many Atlantic City residents.

The City of Atlantic City's Planning Department developed and
implemented the ongoing Atlantic City Historical Markers Program in 2005
to recognize Atlantic City residents who made significant contributions
to the community. 

The online Guide to Atlantic City Historical Markers was developed by
the staff of the Atlantic City Free Public Library and is located on the
library's website at www.acfpl.org/markers. In addition to the Atlantic
City Historical Markers Program, it includes other markers commemorating
the people, events and places that have helped shape the city since it
was incorporated 160 years ago in March 1854.

The digital guide includes photographs of the markers with additional
information and resources about the featured subject, and locations of
and directions to the markers. The site also includes an interactive map
of Atlantic City showing the locations.

The Atlantic City Library will update this guide as new markers are
added or discovered.  Please send information about any markers we may
have missed by clicking on the link provided at www.acfpl.org/markers.

Over the past week or two the boxing world has been consumed with the verbal sparring match happening in the media between Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev (23-0-1, 21 KOs) and Adonis Stevenson.  But before any Kovalev-Stevenson match can take place "Krusher" will face-off against undefeated challenger Cedric "L.O.W." Agnew (26-0-0, 13 KOs) for the WBO Light Heavyweight Championship on March 29th at the Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ and live on HBO Boxing After Dark.   


Agnew has been flying under the radar, so few people know how deeply the sport of boxing runs in his veins.  His uncle, Chicago's own "Mighty" Mike Evans (38-11-1, 27 KOs), started taking Cedric to the gym with him when he was just eight years old.  Agnew spent the majority of his childhood in Chicago working out with his pro-boxer uncle.  His youngest brother, Frankie, is also a fighter, coming off a Chicago Golden Gloves Championship and contemplating a professional career. 

 
Cedric had a stellar amateur career, winning 110 of his 120 bouts.  During his amateur career he won gold medals at the 2003 United States National Junior Olympics, the 2003 Sweden Cup for Under-19's, the 2004 Chicago Golden Gloves, the 2004 United States Under-19 Championships, the 2006 Chicago Golden Gloves and won a silver medal at the 2004 National Golden Gloves.  He also defeated current WBA Champion Beibut Shumenov.  

 

March 29th features the light heavyweight world title showdown between Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev, (23-0-1, 21KOs) and Cedric Agnew (26-0-0, 13 KOs) from the Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic, City, NJ.  The main event and the co-feature (to be announced soon) will be broadcast live on HBO Boxing After Dark at 10:00 PM ET/PT.  The event is presented by Main Events in association with Caesars Atlantic City. Tickets are on sale now through TicketMaster online at www.ticketmaster.com or via phone (800) 736-1420.  Fans can also contact Main Events for tickets at (973) 200-7050.  Ticket prices are $26, $51, $77 and $152.  Doors will open at 6:30 PM ET. Undercard bouts will be announced shortly
