Point Park Concert - Friday, Sept. 6
Who’s Bad’s live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s one true king. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who’s Bad has awed even the skeptics, selling out nearly 50 venues in the United Kingdom, including London’s O2 in December 2010, the venue where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show “This Is It” concert series.For more information about Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park and upcoming events, call the park office at 304-420-4800 or visit the website at www.blennerhassettislandstatepark.com.
