I have to laugh that hanson is to this level....they were one of my middle school bands, but I never thought any of them were cute and didn't get why my friends though they were - they looked like girls!

I would have thought that Boys 2 Men had made enough money that they wouldn't need to do Eat to the Beat shows. Probably a great show though.

they WERE really good.. but it was only 3 of them. That dude with the low voice that did all the talking bits wasnt there.
The worst part was the cow..er.. lady behind me that just HAD to sing along.

Ha - that's excellent!

I've never sat still for an entire concert...but a few years back, John Waite was playing while we were making our way around WS, and I stopped and sang along to "Missing You" - one of my very all time faves! So cool.

Gin Blossoms are showing EPCOT/Eat to the Beat concert dates of 9-27 and 9-28. Problem is that F&W doesn't begin until 9-30. Trying to confirm if correct dates are 10-27 and 10-28. Will advise.

We were at Chubby Checkers last night, he was awesome. Thought he put on a great show, much better than expected, he was not on the must see list. Jose Feliciano was horrible last week.

Eat to the Beat concerts are SO much better than Flower Power concerts! mickey Although I do find it strange that Sugar Ray is there... Hmm... It's like when they started putting The Cosby Show on Nick at Nite and TV Land... I start to feel old.

Chubby Checkers will be 70 this year, we looked him up when we got home, we were wondering the same thing. He was born in 1941. Boy, were his jeans tight for being that age! I'll see if I can figure out how to post a pic, may have to get my 14yr old daughter to help me!
We are closer to middle age...40s... and enjoy the flower power concerts. Tony Orlando (who I was too young to remember, but did recognize the name and some of the music) did an awesome show a couple years ago. The old timers are still really great showman and interact a lot with the audience. Davy Jones was another great show, I did love the Monkeys!
OK, I'm feeling old now! We do enjoy all the concerts though.
