We've heard from a couple of readers who will be joining us for the Tommy Roe / Chris Montez concert next Sunday at The Arcada Theatre. You can still save 20% off your ticket price by going to The Arcada / OShows website and entering the special promotional code "FHITS20" at check out.
We've even got a couple of out-of-towners coming in for this, including Jim Foster, who has written a few reviews for Forgotten Hits in the past. (Hey, maybe you'd like to cover this one, too!!!)
I will be attending the Tommy Roe / Chris Montez concert at The Arcada Theatre on Sunday, March 13th. I am looking forward to meeting you and all your Forgotten Hits readers.
We're also working on getting some of our readers backstage to meet Tommy ... and he'll be doing signings in the lobby after the show ... so please make plans to join us NEXT SUNDAY, March 13th, at 5:00 at The Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, IL, as Tommy and Chris recreate the magic of their 1963 British Tour which just happened to feature The Beatles as their opening act! (And be sure to bring your cameras and memorabilia!!!)
And, depending on when some of you are coming in, you may want to truly make this a Rock And Roll Weekend ... because on Saturday, March 12th, Dennis Tufano, former lead singer of The Buckinghams, will be performing a fund-raising benefit concert at Taft High School in Chicago, backed by the incredible Chicago Experience Band. As I type this, there are only 134 tickets left at $30 each ... all of the $40 and $50 VIP seats have been sold out ... and proceeds of this concert will help benefit The Taft High School Arts and Music Program, so it's all being done for a good cause.

(Sorry, we can't get you a discount on these tickets because it's a fund-raiser ... but you CAN save 20% off your ticket price for the Tommy Roe / Chris Montez show at The Arcada Theater on Sunday)
There are a couple of things I can promise you about this show ...
As good as The Chicago Experience is (and believe me, they're outstanding), odds are Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony snubber Peter Cetera won't be performing with THESE guys either ...
However, I can assure you that they will STILL put on an EXCEPTIONAL show without him!!!
And let's face it ... if you're going to go see some guy sing the hits of The Buckinghams, you may as well go see THE guy who actually sang all these hits in the first place!!! (Dennis will also be doing his Tribute to Bobby Darin as part of this performance, too ... so this is going to be a KILLER concert event any way you look at it!)
Come on out with us and make it a rock and roll double - header ...
