Faux Van Halen to rock Daytona Beach
If you’re going to catch a summer rock tribute show at the historic Daytona Beach Bandshell, your time is running out. There are only two weekends left in the “Star Spangled Summer” concert series that runs through Sept. 30.
On Saturday, the penultimate “Star Spangled Summer” show will feature “Completely Unchained: Van Halen Tribute,” a nod to the timeless six-string virtuosity of Eddie Van Halen and the showmanship of David Lee Roth. Not Sammy Hagar, mind you, because the band narrows its focus to 1978-1984,
The 7:15 p.m. concert will be followed by fireworks over the beach at 9:45.
General admission to the show is free, with VIP tickets available for $15. Visit daytonabandshell.com for more information.
