The best live bands have honed their chemistry through hours spent rehearsing in the studio, improvising onstage, and playing games of MASH on the tour bus. Get out of the shack and pile all eight kids into the Ferrari for this GrouponLive deal to see the Summer Music Festival, with Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and Patti LaBelle, at the Verizon Center. For $25, you get one G-Pass for reserved seating in the 400 level on Sunday, July 29, at 6 p.m. (up to a $78.15 value, including ticketing fees). Doors open at 5 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
The Summer Music Festival's lineup of R & B legends delights fans with silky-smooth melodies and sultry vocals. Headliner Maze featuring Frankie Beverly continues a tradition of stellar music-making that spans more than three decades and draws on a deep catalog of chart-toppers, such as "Back in Stride" and "Can't Get Over You." The band's swinging melodies tickle ears while cradling frontman Frankie Beverly's soulful crooning like a bassinet made of honey. Also lighting up the stage, Grammy winner Patti LaBelle shows off the soaring vocals that cemented the popularity of her disco anthem "Lady Marmalade," and R & B singer and producer Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds earns his sobriquet with his preternaturally youthful features and sleek falsetto. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for such Billboard-topping hits as "Love Train," The O'Jays use their intricate harmonies and colorful suits to keep the good vibes flowing without building a metaphysical aqueduct. And special guest Tank keeps the smooth songs flowing straight into the future.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannon be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
