Second Jessica Simpson Show Added at Fallsview Casino

NIAGARA FALLS, ON, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Fallsview Casino Resort announced today that it has added a second performance by international music, fashion, TV and movie star Jessica Simpson to its August concert line-up.

Simpson, whose August 28th show sold out almost immediately when it was announced earlier this month, will now perform in Fallsview's Avalon Theatre on Wednesday, August 27th, as well.

"Ms. Simpson's show sold out as quickly as any we've ever had here at Fallsview Casino over the last four years," said Greg Medulun, Director of Communications. "When the opportunity came along for us to book her for a second show, we jumped at it. Our customers have made it abundantly clear that they want to see Ms. Simpson's show."

Simpson has graced the covers of some of the world's most popular magazines, including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, GQ, Marie Claire and Elle.

And she has just added "country music sensation" to her list of accomplishments.

Her debut country album will be released this fall.
