John Waite

John Waite will be performing his catalog of hits from his 40-year career as a solo artist, as well as his time with The Baby's and Bad English!

John Waite has been successfully writing, recording and performing some of the most listenable, enduring and appreciated popular music for more than 35 years. As a solo artist and lead singer of The Baby's and Band English, John Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the '70s and '80s. With a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, John Waite's music occasionally touched on new wave-styled power pop as well.

John Waite's catalogue of hits features some of the most loved songs of the '80s and '90s. The number one worldwide solo hit "Missing You," The Baby's "Isn't It Time" and Bad English's "When I See You Smile" rank amongst some of his biggest international hits and are still heard on the radio today. Other hits include "Tears," "Change" and "These Times Are Hard For Lovers." His songs "Every Step Of The Way" and "If Anybody Had A Heart" appeared on the soundtrack to the 1986Demi Moore film "About Last Night" and "Deal For Live," penned by Martin Page and Bernie Taupin, was featured on the "Days of Thunder" soundtrack. John Waite continues to forge his own path, celebrating the present and the promise of the future. The story is far from over for the Lancaster, England-born rock star/balladeer/storyteller who was inspired onto his musical path by blues, soul and country along with a deep connection to the Celtic folk music of his homeland.
