John Waite Brings Back High School Memories During Show at Grand Falls Casino
A John Waite concert was the perfect way to celebrate my friend being cancer free. Pam, one of my best friends from high school, has been battling breast cancer. She recently found out she was cancer free. John Waite was going to be performing a free show in the lounge at Grand Falls Casino and Golf Resort in Larchwood, Iowa on Saturday, January 27 and we thought that would be a great way to celebrate.
Several of Pam's friends and family members, along with hundreds of other John Waite fans, were treated to a setlist of greatest hits. John Waite was a member of the Babys and Bad English, giving him an impressive repertoire, but add in his solo career and you're in for a night of singalongs.
Waite's setlist included:
- Midnight Rendezvous - The Babys
- When I See You Smile - Bad English
- Back on My Feet Again - The Babys
- All Along the Watchtower - Bob Dylan cover
- Best of What I Got - Bad English
- Whenever You Come Around - Vince Gill cover
- Bluebird Cafe
- Every Time I Think of You - The Babys
- Missing You
- Head First - The Babys
- Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin cover
After the show, Waite took photos with fans and signed autographs.
Grand Falls Casino is known for booking some great acts in their Show Lounge. These concerts are free. Recent concerts included Tiffany and Flock of Seagulls. Brian Howe, the former lead singer of Bad Company performs Saturday, February 3 and Head East takes the stage on Saturday, March 3.
Another reason to celebrate - January is also my birthday month. Grand Falls Casino gives away $10 in free play and a free t-shirt. My free t-shirt only cost me $40 this year.
