The Cars first show in 24 years - Seattle Gay News was there
Last night was monumental. It was the national tour launch of The Cars, one of the most influential pop-rock bands in history, at The Showbox SoDo in Seattle.
The group, reunited after a 24-year breakup with 4 of its 5 original members - the fifth, Benjamin Orr, died of cancer in 2000 - played to a venue packed with enthusiastic, cheering fans.
The Cars opened the concert with "Good Times Roll" and closed with "Just What I Needed", and to find out what else they played and how good they were (or not) read our review of the show in Friday's issue of the Seattle Gay News.
A review of another sold out performance, The Kills, will also appear in our May 13 edition.
