Jacob Young (Rick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is not just am Emmy Award-winning actor, he’s also an incredibly talented singer and musician. And in March, he will be performing a live concert at the Tropicana in Las Vegas!
“It’s going to be a great show,” Young tells Soaps In Depth. “I’m going to be doing a few covers, but it will mostly be songs that are on my [upcoming] album. I’ll probably roll out 12 songs, total. There’s a VIP meet-and-greet afterward in the lounge downstairs if anyone wants to buy that ticket.”
In addition to starring on B&B, Young has appeared as J.R. Chandler on ALL MY CHILDREN and Lucky Spencer on GENERAL HOSPITAL. In 2001, he released a self-titled CD, and has continued working on his music over the years, sometimes sharing samples of his tunes with his fans online.
“I’ve always listened to country music my entire life,” Young confides. “I grew up on it and never stopped playing it. I was country when country wasn’t cool, and now it’s awesome because people like Sturgill Simpson have been showing everybody how cool country can be.”
Right now there’s no scheduled release date for the new album, so fans interested in getting a sneak peek at Young’s latest music will definitely want to be at this show. “I have a ton of friends and family who are coming to it,” he reports, “and it’s just going to be a great time. The tickets are going pretty quickly, and maybe I’ll be announcing an additional date or something like that.”
The show will be held on Sunday, Mar. 26, at 5 p.m. and Monday, Mar. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Laugh Theater. For tickets, you can call 702-739-2411, visit the Tropicana website, or stop by the Tropicana box office in person.
