David Cassidy “Up Close and Personal” at NJPAC…TODAY!
The Partridge Family heartthrob, David Cassidy, returns to New Jersey on Saturday, June 25, 2016, for two “Up Close and Personal” shows at Newark’s New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Cassidy and his band will perform in the intimate Victoria Theater, located at 1 Center Street in Newark, at 3 and 7:30pm; tickets range from $49.50 to $59.50.
David Cassidy was born in 1950 to celebrity parents — actor Jack Cassidy and actress Evelyn Ward — but from an early age, he was raised by his maternal grandparents in West Orange, NJ. At the age of 19, he appeared on Broadway and also played some minor roles on television shows including Adam-12, Bonanza, Ironside and Marcus Welby, M.D. At the age of 20, he accepted the role of Keith Partridge on TV’s The Partridge Family.
During the run of the very popular show, The Partridge Family produced ten albums, with most selling more than one million copies each. As a solo artist, Cassidy’s career went on to exceed the phenomenal success of The Partridge Family and he became an instant drawcard with spectacular sellout concert appearances all over the world. For instance, his famous 1972 concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden sold out in a single day.
Cassidy’s hits with The Partridge Family include “I Woke Up In Love This Morning,” “Doesn’t Somebody Want To Be Wanted,” and “I Think I Love You,” the #1 selling recording of 1971. As a solo artist, David’s hits include “Cherish,” “How Can I Be Sure,” and “Rock Me Baby.”
For the past 40 years, Cassidy has demonstrated a unique ability to adapt to various aspects of show business including television, recording, concert tours, live theater on Broadway and London’s West End, and even Las Vegas production shows. In doing so, he’s proven that his talent and creativity are worthy of keeping people coming back again and again to experience his remarkable performances.
