Ridgefield, CT, February 28, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- John Waite, appearing at The Ridgefield Playhouse on March 9.
British rocker John Waite is invading The Ridgefield Playhouse.
John Waite has always captured the moment through his songs, whether with the Babys (“Everytime I Think of You”) or with Bad English (“When I See You Smile”) or on his own (“Missing You” and “Change”). John Waite is coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse for Movies and the Performing Arts for the first time on Sunday, March 9 at 8 p.m.
The experience of rock 'n' roll glory came fast and furious for John Waite during the late 1970s. His band, The Babys, captured all the excitement of hitting it big in America: hit albums, hit singles and sellout concerts. Solo in the early '80s, John Waite's career ignited with the MTV/radio staple “Change” and then exploded with “Missing You,” a worldwide number one smash that has become a pop rock radio staple.
Back in a band at the start of '90s, Waite experienced further No. 1 chart success with Bad English. The group's first album captured that Big Time moment all over again; a second album sent Waite into retreat. "Getting back to basics was really my way of re-familiarizing myself with who I was. I had an audience out there that would come and see me if I played."
