How G-Pass Works: Within an hour of purchase, your G-Pass will be in your account. You may redeem your G-Pass via the mobile app when you enter the venue. You may also print it out in advance. Discount reflects the merchant’s current ticket prices - price may differ on day of event.
- The way of The Tubes: Imagine a power-pop band like The Cars or Cheap Trick—but led by Andy Kaufman and Bertolt Brecht—and you’ll get a sense of The Tubes theatrical, prankish, and absurdist twist on rock-‘n-roll conventions.
- The leader of The Tubes: the irrepressible Fee Waybill, who in the past adopted alter egos for the band’s surreal stage shows, which were more SNL than rock concert
- Some of Waybill’s characters: country singer Hugh Heifer, drug-addled Brit pop star Quay Lewd, and punker Johnny Bugger (he actually broke his leg on stage doing that bit)
- How they got the media’s attention: Waybill’s onstage antics got them banned in England, which has strict laws against being entertaining.
- How they got your attention: most likely with their sole Top 10 hit, 1983’s “She’s a Beauty,” which stayed in MTV rotation thanks to a provocative video involving a peep show
- The show: Although The Tubes have settled into a straightforward pop band over the decades, fans can still expect Waybill to go back to his old ways in a set that encompasses the group’s entire career, from “White Kids on Dope” to “Talk to You Later.”
