John Waite and His Band Coming to Riviera Theatre

The Riviera Theatre announces An Evening With John Waite & His Band – coming on Saturday, October 19,, 2019 at 8:00PM.


Countless musicians of far lesser accomplishment have probably made similar statements regarding their own personal creative process, but when the confession comes from John Waite – whose been successfully writing, recording and performing some of the most listenable, enduring and appreciated popular music for more than 35 years – one cannot help but both recognize and marvel at the shimmering legacy of this British born rock star.


1984’s No Brakes, did exactly what the title inferred, barreling at runaway train speed to international acclaim and U.S. platinum success thanks to the smash hit, “Missing You,” which did not stop until it reached Number 1 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles, Album Rock Tracks and Adult Contemporary charts. The following up single, “Tears” was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.


John Waite continues to forge his own singularly personal path, celebrating the present and engaged by the promise of the future. The story is far from over for the Lancaster, England-born rock star/balladeer/storyteller who was inspired onto his musical path by blues, soul and country along with a deep connection to the Celtic folk music of his homeland.


A very limited amount of VIP Meet & Greet add-on tickets will be available which includes:

•  Meet & Greet with John Waite and the band before the show

•  Private photo opp

•  Opportunity to get merch items signed

•  1 signed lyric sheet to “Missing You” with John’s thumbprint ink’d into the paper
