He is still an Eagle, but is embarking on a rare solo tour this fall that also comes to Beacon Theatre in New York on Oct. 1. Tickets to the Beacon show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
Awesomesauce! I had been hoping for the Wellmont, but this is even more personal! I’ve got a gig in Collingswood that day, but may have to make sure I get to MHS that night!
Went to school with Joe’s younger brother at MHS and am a rabid Eagles fan! Must be there!!
