Humor me if you will for a moment. I am one of those 40-somethings who is still living in the 80’s. At least when it comes to my music. Much to my kid’s disgust, I sing along in the car anytime a Depeche Mode song comes on. (And I found a good radio station, so it’s a lot more then they deserve. Not many people hear me sing for good reason). So you can imagine my utter delight when I found out that Howard Jones will be performing at the Eat To The Beat Concerts October 22nd and 23rd when we will be in Disney for the Pixelmania weekend!
Howard Jones (opening for The Thompson Twins) was my first-ever concert in 1984 at the Garden State Arts Center (now the PNC Arts Center) in Holmdel NJ. Oh how I wish I still had my t-shirt! Now my i-pod has only The Best of Howard Jones, alas my Dream into Action and Human’s Lib cassettes are long gone, but I still know all the words to the songs. (Sorry kids, October will seem like it will never get here!)
As if a trip to The World wasn’t enough to look forward to, now I can also appease a bit of my high school nostalgia. Howard Jones will be performing at the America Gardens Theatre in World Showcase October 22nd and 23rd at 5:15pm, 6:30pm and 7:45pm. The concert is free with Epcot admission. Stay tuned for my review and pictures! (And I will try not to embarrass Dave too much if I decide to dress like Cyndi Lauper for a day!)
