hall and oates on same bill as todd

Hall and Oates pass the savings along to you
Hey, I was psyched enough that Daryl Hall and John Oates were throwing in for the Spectrum's Final Farewell Concert Series. Then I found out that fellow local heroes Todd Rundgren and The Hooters would also be on the bill (though I was sworn to secrecy).

Now comes word that tickets for the October 23 show, dubbed "The Last Call," will be going for the rock bottom, bargain basement price of $4, $5, and $6. The deeply discounted tickets reflect the ticket price of the very first concert held at the Spectrum, the two-day Quaker City Jazz Festival (September 30-October 1, 1967).

Of course, if you feel like dropping a little coin on the show, a limited number of VIP tickets, which include a post-concert reception and a certificate for a commemorative brick from the Spectrum (after the venue closes), will also be available through ComcastTIX. ALL tickets on sale this Saturday (9/19) at 10:00 a.m. exclusively through ComcastTIX.

If you're scoring at home, Hall and Oates have performed six previous times at the Spectrum (first show: December 12, 1977); The Hooters four times (first time: November 26, 1987) and Todd Rundgren only once: April 19, 1980.

Don't forget that Todd is also this month's guest on Live From Daryl's House!
