Hot Rod, Cheap Trick Taking Downtown Train To The Amp

It’s time to take the Downtown Train to Bridgeport.

One of Rod Stewart’s signature songs was penned by another with an unusual set of pipes, the mysterious Tom Waits. The song has been covered by many, but no one with the mighty magnitude of Stewart. It doesn’t always make the set list with so many choices. Still, mark your calendar for Aug. 30.  Stewart and Cheap Trick a nice twofer at The Amp.
