When fabled radio DJ Alan Freed coined the phrase “rock ‘n’ roll,” nobody realized he was actually referring to starting avalanches. Rock out with this GrouponLive deal to see 93.1 Jack FM's Jack’s 7th Show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Irvine. For $10, you get one G-Pass for access to the general-admission lawn on Saturday, September 15, at 4:45 p.m. (up to a $33 value, including all fees). Doors open at 3:30 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.
93.1 Jack FM’s motto has always been “playing what we want.” Whether the song is old, new, rock, or rap—as long as it’s catchy, the format-eschewing radio station spins it. At Jack’s 7th Show, the latest edition of the station’s annual live bash, the airwave diversity materializes with a lineup loaded with classic rockers, alt-rock vets, and one untouchable man responsible for popularizing parachute pants.
Ranked in the Rolling Stone list of 100 Greatest Guitarists, Joe Walsh tops the evening’s bill. Best known for his work in the Eagles and his ability to divert the course of migrating ducks with his six-string, Joe lights up the stage with jaunty hits such as “Life’s Been Good” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” The melodically betrothed duo of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo make their ‘80s classics such as “Love Is a Battlefield” and “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” sound like newborn anthems as Pat’s operatically trained voice strips the varnish from nearby boats. Toto inspires mass sing-alongs with staples such as “Africa” and “Rosanna,” and ‘90s alternative rockers Gin Blossoms stir up happy memories and internal tears with their hits “Hey Jealousy” and “Found Out About You.” Rounding out the human-shuffle-mix roster, new-wavers Missing Persons feature original lead singer Dale Bozzio at the helm and knock out favorites such as “Destination Unknown,” and MC Hammer’s legitimacy keeps him unable to quit as he raps his signature hit “U Can’t Touch This.”
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
