John Waite

All Ages
Friday, February 03
Doors: 7pm

Singer-songwriter John Waite has been a fixture of classic rock radio for nearly 40 years. Waite returns to The Kent Stage on February 3rd to once again captivate our audience with magical vocals and stunning bass playing!

Waite first came to prominence as the vocalist and bassist of the English rock outfit The Babys, best known for the hits “Isn’t It Time?” and 
“Every Time I Think of You”
 in the late 1970s. That group disbanded in 1980 (after a final performance in Akron, Ohio), and Waite went on to a very successful solo career, scoring a Number One U.S. hit with “Missing You.” In the late 80’s John was the lead singer of supergroup Bad English and was the lead singer of their Number One hit “When I See You Smile.” John has been recording and touring over the last 30 years and is the subject of the recently released movie, John Waite-The Hard Way.
