Celebrate 40 years of rock ‘n’ roll with New England on Friday, October 25, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. at the Spire Center, 25 ½ Court St., Plymouth, MA. In 1979, New England emerged on the international scene with the release of their self-titled debut album on Infinity/MCA. Their first single “Don’t Ever Wanna Lose Ya” became a Billboard Top 40 hit and worldwide AOR smash. They are on tour again celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of that iconic self-titled album New England, which was recently voted by UK’s Classic Rock Magazine #14 of The 50 Greatest AOR Albums of all time.
Based in Boston, New England features guitarist/vocalist John Fannon, drummer/vocalist Hirsh Gardner, keyboardist/vocalist Jimmy Waldo and bassist Gary Shea. New England has accumulated an extraordinary catalog of studio, live, compilation, and solo albums. The original band—Fannon, Gardner, Waldo and Shea—has played every note on every record over the course of a career that has lasted 40 years. In rock and roll chronology, that’s equivalent to a million lifetimes. In the rock and roll arena of accomplishments, that’s right up there with splitting the atom and putting a man on the moon. In other words, it’s just about impossible.
Tickets are $30; advance purchase is recommended, seating is limited to capacity. The Spire is handicap accessible, public parking is available streetside, and in public lots near the venue.
