Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

Legendary blues-rock band, George Thorogood and the Destroyers will perform during The Greek Theatre's 80th Anniversary season with special guests Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Charlie Musselwhite.
George Thorogood and the Destroyers released their self-titled debut album in 1977 and quickly established themselves as radio favorites and as a touring machine. Described as "the world's greatest bar band," the group has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and has had tremendous success with Thorogood's original compositions like "You Talk Too Much," "I Drink Alone" and of course "Bad To The Bone;" he's also had hits with covers of iconic blues-rock songs like "Who Do You Love" (Bo Diddley), "Move It On Over" (Hank Williams) and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" (John Lee Hooker). Thorogood's Gold-certified Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock was Billboard's #1 Blues Album for 2004 and 2005, and the band's 2006 album, The Hard Stuff, reached #2. 2009's The Dirty Dozen debuted at #1 on the Blues chart, fueled by the album's #1 single, "Tail Dragger."
On their 17th studio album, 2120 South Michigan Avenue, to be released July 12 by Capitol/EMI, Thorogood and the Destroyers pay tribute to their Chess Records heroes, including many of Thorogood's legendary mentors who helped to launch his career in rock & roll. Named for the address of Chess Records' Chicago headquarters, 2120 features Thorogood's raw, rocking turn on classics by a who's-who of the blues, including Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, and other Chess greats, plus new original songs written by Thorogood, the album's producer Tom Hambridge, and Richard Fleming. The album's guests include 2010 GRAMMY Award winners Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite.
