The Rays have added three acts to their post-game concert series…
Tantric June 25, vs Arizona
Vanilla Ice July 9, vs Cleveland
Los Lobos July 30, vs Yankees
Tantric is an interesting choice, because they also happen to be Evan Longoria’s walk-up music. So one has to wonder if the powers-that-be are acting on Dirtbag’s suggestion or if they are just throwing him a bone.
The addition of Los Lobos is interesting in that it comes on the night of a Yankees game. Certainly the Rays don’t need any boost in attendance on that night. But all three concerts come on Fridays, the night the Rays are trying to turn the Trop into a nightclub.
As for Vanilla Ice. I am not afraid to admit that I saw Mr. Ice in concert back in ~1989 when he opened up for MC Hammer. it was just before he hit it big and yes, remember thinking he was cool as hell.
Now if the Rays can just get The New Kids on the Block and The Village People, their concert series will be complete.
