Singer/songwriter John Waite whose career spans more than three decades and numerous hit singles will perform at the Spire Center for Performing Arts in Plymouth, Mass., on Friday, Sept. 16th at 8 p.m. with special guest Leslie DiNicola. This will be Waite’s first appearance in Plymouth. Tickets can be purchased HERE.
Inspired by British blues-bands like Free, Small Faces and Humble Pie, Waite got his start as the lead singer and bassist of The Babys, giving his unmistakable voice to the Top 20 hits “Isn’t It Time?” and “Every Time I Think of You.” After five albums, Waite moved to New York to go solo during the early 1980’s. His first solo album, “Ignition,” boasted the MTV/rock radio staple “Change” which was followed by the #1 rock ballad “Missing You.” The song topped the international charts and today remains a radio staple around the globe. Waite returned to the top of the charts during a two-album tenure as front man for the pop/rock super group Bad English whose number one single “When I See You Smile,” sparked sold out concert tours and a succession of Billboard Top 40 hits. After Bad English disbanded, Waite returned to solo work.
An impressive live performer, Waite is touring in support of his latest solo EP release “The Wooden Heart.” For his show at The Spire Center, Waite will be performing hits from his solo career, Bad English and The Babys, as well as stories and a Q&A. Tickets are on-sale now by clicking HERE.
