Starlight is booking a slew of nostalgia acts this summer, and the latest installment is Huey Lewis and the News. That's all well and good, but here is what's more important: It's a super-cheap way to see local Afrobeat extraordinaire Hearts of Darkness rock Starlight's gigantic, killer sound system. (Of course, you can also try to figure out how that group ended up on a Huey Lewis bill. We're stumped, too -- but we ain't complaining.)
While supplies last, you can groove to Hearts of Darkness for only 10 bucks. It's a deal that you get when you snag a four-pack -- y'know, four tickets -- for $40. Based on the way this party band sells out venues, finding three friends to chip in $10 shouldn't be too hard.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 22, at 9 a.m. for the June 16 show.
Tickets for Huey Lewis and the News and Hearts of Darkness will be available at the Starlight Theatre Box Office, KCStarlight.com, LiveNation.com, by phone at 816-363-7827 or toll free at 800-776-1730.
