The Rockin’ on the River Concert Series continues with John Waite taking the stage at Caloosa Sound Amphitheater on Friday, April 28 at 7 p.m.

Public on sale began Friday, March 3 at 10 a.m. at

The concert will include hits from his 40-year career as a solo artist, with The Babys and Bad English.

John Waite’s catalogue of hits features some of the most loved songs of the ‘80s and ‘90s – the #1 Worldwide hit “Missing You,” The Babys’ “Isn’t It Time” and Bad English’s “When I See You Smile” rank among some of his biggest international hits and are still heard on radio today.  Others include “Tears,” “Change” and “These Times Are Hard for Lovers.” “Every Step of The Way” and “If Anybody Had A Heart” appeared on the soundtrack to the 1986 Demi Moore film About Last Night. “Deal for Life,” penned by Martin Page and Bernie Taupin, was featured in the Days of Thunder soundtrack.

As a solo artist and as the lead singer of The Babys and Bad English, Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the ‘70s and ‘80s. John Waite had a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, occasionally touching on new wave-styled power pop as well.
