John Waite’s career has spanned more than 35 years and has seen multi-platinum success, a Grammy nomination, and a couple of number one singles.  His success has come as a solo artist (“Missing You”, “Change”), as a member of the classic rockers The Babys (“Isn’t It Time”, “Everytime I Think of You”), and as a part of the late 1980s supergroup Bad English (“When I See You Smile”).  Most recently, the title track from his 2011 album Rough & Tumble went number one on classic rock radio’s charts.

Opener Henry Lee Summer released his first full length major label album, Stay with Me, in 1984, but it wasn’t until his 1987 release, Henry Lee Summer, on CBS Records that saw him breakthrough.  The album contained his most well-known song “I Wish I Had a Girl (that walked like that)”.
