Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes will take requests in Asbury Park, Feb. 17.

The day after presenting their annual New Year’s Eve show at The Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes put tickets on sale for their annual February concert at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. And this one has a special theme — “Requests From the Hat” — meaning that at least some of the setlist will be made up of songs requested by audience members.

Advance tickets, priced at $50, are available via ticketmaster.com. At the door, they will be $60.

(JAN. 8 UPDATE: A show has been added for Feb. 16 as well.)

The show is being billed as a “50th anniversary show” for the Stone Pony. The nightclub opened on Feb. 8, 1974, and its first house band was The Blackberry Booze Band, which evolved into Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes in 1975. (Bruce Springsteen’s first Stone Pony appearance, by the way, is believed to be as an unbilled guest with The Blackberry Booze Band in September 1974.)
