Commodores Coming To Rhythm City Tonight!

The Commodores are playing Davenport’s Rhythm City Casino, 7077 Elmore Ave., TONIGHT!

Tickets will be available for general admission online at or at The Market at Rhythm City for $35, $45, $55, $60 and $65 plus applicable online/phone ticketing fee (this fee is waived when tickets are purchased at The Market Gift Shop inside Rhythm City Casino Resort).
Doors open at 7 PM for the 8 PM show. All ages are welcome.
One of the greatest Motown and R&B / funk artists of all time, The Commodores’ Walter “Clyde” Orange, James Dean “JD” Nicholas and William “WAK” King have influenced both artists young and old and in all genres with their classic songs. The Commodores brand is bigger than ever as they continue to blaze trails all over the world. Don’t miss your chance to feature one of the most successful vocal groups of all time in 2020 and beyond as The Commodores continue to thrill audiences with their Greatest Hits Tour – Live!
In 1968 the group was formed while all the members were in college at Tuskeegee Institute. After being discovered by Berry Gordy, the Commodores went on to sell over 60 million records for Motown. With hits like “Machine Gun” and “Sail On”, the Commodores became proven artists. For five decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. Just like their hit song “Brick House,” the Commodores have created a foundation that just won’t budge.
The Commodores have maintained their place among the most successful entertainers in the world. Their new careers as entrepreneurs, as well as performers bring the boys from Tuskegee full circle. Bringing the talent and experience of three decades of writing, producing, and performing hit music to a whole new generation of fans, the Commodores are proving once again that their future is as bright as their past.
