The nation's ultimate tribute show to "The Boss" hits the showroom stage for two shows!

(Wheeling, WV – May 9th, 2008) Wheeling Island Hotel -Casino-Racetrack proudly presents a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E. Street Band show live in the Wheeling Island showroom for two shows on Friday, May 9th & Saturday, May 10th at 9pm.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 night of the show. Tickets are on sale now and can be ordered by calling Wheeling Island at 304-231-1749/1751 or by visiting the Wheeling Island gift shop.

Matt Ryan began his career playing the Bruce Springsteen character in the World Famous "Legends In Concert" show for eight years in Las Vegas. The great success with "Legends" evolved Ryan's character into the Bruce In The USA show.

His amazing portrayal of "The Boss" (not to mention his jaw-dropping resemblance) is as close as you can get to see the real thing in concert. Backed by a strong, powerful Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons, and a smokin' handed "Little Stevie", Bruce In The USA takes this genre of performance art to a whole new level.

The Bruce In The USA show made its debut in 2004 at the Aladdin Hotel and Casino's majestic "V Theatre". Bruce In The USA captivated the senses in a fun-filled and exciting party atmosphere on the Vegas Strip, while suspending disbelief for even the toughest skeptics. They've been met with critical acclaim by even the toughest skeptics, from the Stone Pony, Asbury Park to House Of Blues' and large theatres across the country, where sell out crowds are on their feet from the first song to the last.
