The Grateful Dead played the Spectrum more than 50 times. The Who smashed guitars. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Doors, Frank Zappa, the Flyers’ first Stanley, Andre the Giant. The list goes on and on. Today, it’s a much different place, as evidenced by next Saturday’s show featuring five Irish guys known as Celtic Thunder singing songs like "Puppy Love" and "I Want to Know What Love Is." Should this sound like a fun night out to you rather than a sacrilege, I have some tickets to give away. E-mail me your name and daytime phone number (any e-mails without phone numbers will be disregarded) and I’ll pick the winners at random next week.
Celtic Thunder, Saturday, October 25th, at 8 p.m., Wachovia Spectrum; tickets available through www.comcasttix.com, 1-800-298-4200, and the Wachovia Center box office.
