Honeywell Center in Wabash has the perfect Valentine’s Day date for you when they host the one and only Mr. Big on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
That’s right: Eric Martin, Billy Sheehan, and Paul Gilbert are back on the road with friend Nick D’Virgilio stepping in for founding drummer Pat Torpey who passed away in 2018 following his battle with Parkinson’s disease.
D’Virgilio may sound familiar to some as member of the prog-rock acts Spock’s Beard and Big Big Train and as a member of the Sweetwater Sound team.
The Big Finish Tour will see the band performing their breakthrough platinum-selling 1991 album Lean Into It from start to finish as a featured highlight of the setlist.
The well-crafted album features hits songs like “Green-Tinted Sixties Mind,” “Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy,” and the worldwide No. 1 smash hit single, “To Be With You.”
Folks can also expect to hear other hits spanning the band’s entire career.
In all, Wabash will be rocking so much that evening that your sweetie could care less about those dozen roses and chocolates.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m. at honeywellarts.org.
