It's a big week for summer and early-fall show announcements. I know none of us want to think about falling leaves and brisk air. Blame Ke$ha, LMFAO and Spank Rock. They're slated to perform at Starlight on Friday, September 2, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35-$49.50.
However, Starlight kind of -- I stress kind of -- redeemed itself yesterday, when the Yes and Styx show was announced. They'll play a double bill on Monday, July 18, at 7 p.m. Tickets will go on sale May 6 at 9 a.m.
Earlier this week, the Midland's PR folks announced Americ-uhmm rock guitarist Ted Nugent would
grace its stage on Friday, July 13. The show will begin at 8 p.m. and
it's all-ages. Tickets go on sale this morning. Prices ranges from
$29.50 to $34.50.
