Review: The Bangles bring '80s hits to the Hard Rock Cafe at the Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa



If you really want to review an '80s band right, you better send an '80s band to do the job.

Stuck in the '80s had Chris Stainton of local '80s cover group Rubix Cubed check out the Bangles on Sunday at the Hard Rock Cafe at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and here's what he said:

The girls, who aren’t golden girls yet, look absolutely smashing for moms in their early 50s, but vocally, they remain 25. From the dead on harmonies, to Susanna's hair-tossing, Rickenbacker guitar and infectious smile, to Vicki’s leather miniskirt, ripping solos and playful banter, to Debbie’s signature straight blonde locks, thundering drums, and acoustic guitar prowess, it was a show that every card carrying member of the SIT80s nation should have attended.
