Dennis DeYoung, Pat Benatar, Huey Lewis coming to Busch Gardens
Hey, '80s fans in Tampa Bay. Better ask Santa for a last-minute annual pass to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, because check out the lineup for their Bands, Brew and BBQ series in February:
Dennis DeYoung (Feb. 7), Huey Lewis and the News (Feb. 21) and Pat Benatar (Feb. 28).
The theme park's Bands, Brew and BBQ festival basically gives you a free concert along with any single-day ticket or annual pass. I'll pass on the barf-inducing roller-coasters, but since February is usually a glorious outdoor weather month in Florida, count me in on the food, beer and free music.
In my nearly three decades of being an '80s addict, I've yet to catch Huey Lewis or Pat Benatar in concert. But Dennis DeYoung's show, I can personally vouch, is not to be missed. He tears through all the Styx classics and throws in a few solo gems as well. (A little Desert Moon anyone?)
