RAHWAY, NJ – New York rocker, Willie Nile, will help ring in the New Year to a full house at the Hamilton Stage on December 31 at 8:30 PM.

The New York Times called Buffalo, NY born Willie Nile "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." UNCUT Magazine called him “A one-man Clash.” His album Streets of New York was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT Magazine. Rolling Stone Magazine listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ‘n’ roll album of the year.” 

 Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises

His album, American Ride, won “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on dozens of year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and was voted “Album of the Year” at Twangville Magazine. Bono called it, “One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America. 

Willie has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: “His live performances are legendary.” He is currently touring in North America and working on a new album. He lives in New York City

Tickets for Willie Nile are now completely sold out. For those lucky enough to be attending the show, the Hamilton Stage is located at 360 Hamilton Street in the heart of Rahway's Arts District and is easily accessible to major roads and public transportation.
