DESERT DIAMOND CASINOS & ENTERTAINMENT WELCOMES GARY PUCKETT TO THE DIAMOND CENTER
TUCSON, Ariz. – Pop rock star Gary Puckett is set to perform at Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment’s Diamond Center on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017. Tickets start at $15 and go on sale Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017 through Star Tickets and at Desert Diamond Casino’s Rewards Center.

In the 1960s, Gary Puckett and The Union Gap took the world by storm, earning six consecutive gold records touting hits such as “Young Girl,” “Woman, Woman,” “Over You,” and “Lady Willpower.” The singles were so well received that “Young Girl” was later reissued in England and—six years after its initial release—hit the No. 1 spot and achieved a Silver Record Award for the second time.
The group eventually disbanded to pursue solo careers. Gary Puckett has continued to tour over the years, including being a founding member of the “Happy Together” Tour, playing sold out performances in more than 100 cities nationwide. Gary was also invited to tour with The Monkees on their national reunion tour. Today, he performs to standing room only crowds, doing more than 150 performances every year.
