On-Sale Saturday: Cheap Trick, Tyrone Wells, More
I want you to want these on-sale dates.
Cheap Trick, Dec. 17 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 ($52.50) Cheap Trick obviously had their greatest success in the late '70s - At Budokan was 1978 - but they've had a bit of a resurgence as of late, thanks to their inclusion in video games like Guitar Hero 2 and Rock Band 2 and their composition of "The Colbert Report" theme song. Is there anything Stephen Colbert can't do?
Tyrone Wells, Jan. 29 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 ($15) Though Tyrone Wells is originally from Spokane, he's currently based in Fullerton, where he's carved out his folky/poppy niche. Suck it, Spokane.
Ratt, Dec. 27 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 ($25) Between this show, and Tesla and Styx, there are a lot of '80s rock bands playing the House of Blues this winter. Too much? Maybe. Possibly. Yes.
Jeffrey Osborne, Dec. 3 at the Grove of Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m., Saturday Oct. 25 ($40-$50) R&B singer who used to front L.T.D. I wonder if pranksters ever crossed out the "L" and put an "S." I bought a pillow at Target the other day, and it was a "standard pillow," but on the receipt it said "STD pillow." No joke. I kind of wanted to return it after that.
Reel Big Fish, Jan. 4 at the Grove of Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 ($20) We talked about this show earlier this week, but now we have a price: 20 bizones, a mere pittance when you consider the amount of pent-up skanking you know is boiling inside you.
