Bangles 2012 tour brings them to Tampa's Hard Rock Cafe on Oct. 28
The Bangles are finally making room in their touring schedule for a stop in Tampa. The '80s icons will play the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa on Sunday, Oct. 28.
The Hard Rock is billing it as a "standing-room-only" show but I'm 45 years old and need a chair. Or at least a bar stool. But I've been waiting a while to see them live in concert, so maybe I'll settle for a wall to lean on.
And now I've officially made it to the third paragraph before cracking any "You better Walk Like an Egyptian if you want to score tickets to this show." So proud.
Tickets cost $38 and are available at the Hard Rock Store and all Ticketmaster outlets online at www.ticketmaster.com. FYI: Because it's at a casino, this is a 21-and-up show.
Susanna Hoffs, Debbi Peterson and Vicki Peterson -- Michael Steele left in 2005 -- still form the heart of the lineup of the band, which joined the Go-Go's and Bananarama as the conquering girl groups of the '80s. (Imagine all three on the same bill!)
