Tampa Bay Area Volkswagen dealers and the Tampa Bay Lightning are teaming up to bring the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen to the St. Pete Times Forum this season. The concert series will include a performance by John Waite following the December 4 game against the Colorado Avalanche. The concert will be held outdoors on the West Plaza stage immediately following the game. Access to the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen is free with the purchase of a Lightning game ticket.

Considered one of the most uniquely identifiable voices in Rock-n-Roll, John Waite found success three times in his career as lead vocalist for The Babys and Bad English, as well as a solo career that produced numerous Billboard charted hits including the #1 smash “Missing You.”

Waite’s career began in the late 1970’s and spans over 30 years. His band, The Babys, released five studio albums together with a number of Top 40 hits including, “Isn’t It Time?,” “Back On My Feet Again” and “Everytime I Think Of You.” Waite released his first solo album, Ignition, in 1982 which boasted the MTV/rock radio staple “Change.” A year later, back with a new record No Brakes, Waite found himself at the top of the charts with his hit “Missing You.” The song made it to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Missing You” remains a radio staple, covered by artists such as Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Alison Krauss and most recently, pop artist Orianthi on her 2010 album Believe. In 1989, Waite joined supergroup Bad English which spawned six chart topping hits including the #1 hit “When I See You Smile.” A new studio album is also in the works with help from Matchbox Twenty’s lead guitarist and songwriter Kyle Cook. The as-yet-untitled collection of brand new music is set for an early 2011 release.

 Lightning Concert Series began in 2006 and has been a huge hit, attracting fans to enjoy additional entertainment after watching exciting Lightning hockey. Other concert series performers will be announced throughout the season. Other dates scheduled as part of the Lightning Concert Series presented by Volkswagen include February 12, February 19, March 5 and March 11 with performers to be announced later in the season.
