Venue: Talking Stick Resort – Showroom, Scottsdale, AZ https://www.talkingstickresort.com/
Date: Saturday August 21st, 2021
Promoter: Danny Zelisko Presents https://dzplive.com/
The Tubes originally came from Phoenix, Arizona but moved to San Francisco in the mid-70s and put their mark on the late 70s music scene. I saw them for the first time in March of 1978 at the Celebrity Theatre when they did the “White Punks On Dope Tour”. They toned down the show due to Fee’s grandparents being in the audience. But I was still amazed by the stage antics of Fee. At one point he drove a motorcycle out onto the stage. I saw them again in February, 2016 at Talking Stick Resort in the Showroom when they did their 40th Anniversary Tour. It was a more subdued performance, but frontman and lead singer, Fee Waybill still came out with multiple outfits during the set.
With songs like “Don’t Touch Me There”, “What Do You Want From Live”, “She’s A Beauty” and of course their classic “White Punks On Dope”, you will enjoy reliving the late 70s music. In a way it was a shame that The Tubes greatest hits predated MTV. They were made for the early years of MTV and the videos they could have created would have taken them from great to superstars in the music industry.
If you haven’t been to see a show at the Showroom at Talking Stick Resort, then you are in for a treat. It is a small venue with a fantastic sound system and great seating everywhere. Having seen The Tubes there before, it is a perfect location to see this amazing band. So, grab a drink, play a couple of slots and then I hope to see you all at the Showroom this coming Saturday night.
