Patty Smyth & Scandal, the 80s rock band best known for hits like “The Warrior”, “Goodbye To You”, and “Love’s Got a Line on You”, will join Rick Springfield and Greg Kihn as support for their show at PNC Pavilion on Friday, September 6th.
About Patty Smyth & Scandal
Patty was 15 when she played her first gig at New York’s Folk City and spent the next several years honing her craft by performing short musical sets at Catch A Rising Star in between then-unknown comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Reiser, Larry David and Chris Rock. The weekends-only gig paid only cab fare and to make ends meet, Patty waitressed at a steak house. It was there that one day she answered a ringing payphone and met Zack Smith, who would later ask her to front a band with him called Scandal. The rest is history.
About Greg Kihn
As a pioneer with the legendary Beserkley Records, Greg Kihn helped write the book on revolutionary west coast rock and roll. He’s toured the world, had hit records, and has won several awards for his hit songs “Jeopardy”, “Break Up Song” and “Lucky”. Greg recently obtained the rights to all his old recordings and has re-released his entire catalogue. In support of these releases and his NEW album ReKihndled, the iconic San Francisco Bay area rocker, radio personality and author has been going out with the Greg Kihn Band across the country.
