Today the Rays announced three more acts for their Saturday night Summer Concert Series.
August 14: Train
September 18: Adam Lambert and Orianthi
September 25: Dierks Bentley
The Rays have received some criticism for only booking AARP acts (e.g. ZZ Top, Go-Go’s, Hall & Oates) for the Summer Concert Series, so it is refreshing to see some that won’t be up past their bedtime.
But the current selection is certain to bring a different audience to The Trop on Saturday nights this summer. Train is innocent enough. They have that catchy pop song out now, “Hey Soul Sister.” And while Dierks Bentley is a Country singer, that stuff is pretty mainstream these days. Know that song “It’s a quarter after 1:00, I’m a little drunk and I need you now“? That was on the Country charts for months before it hit the pop charts.
No, we are talking about Adam Lambert. Here is how the Rays described Lambert in the press release…
The flashy and flamboyant Indianapolis native is known for his time on the eighth season of the hit television show American Idol.
Translation: Gay and nowhere near the closet, and only 14-year old girls listen to his music. That will be an entertining night at The Trop.
