Young Rascals

Earlier this week we posted that E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt is working to fund the reunion of fellow Jersey band The Rascals, who haven't played live with their original lineup in 40 years. As of this post, their Kickstarter is just about halfway to its goal with 26 days to go.

At the time we had no idea how quickly the actual shows would be announced, but it has already been revealed that the reunion is set to make its debut in Port Chester, NY with a three-night run at the Capitol Theatre from December 12-15. As mentioned, the shows are dubbed "Once Upon A Dream" and are being produced and directed by Van Zandt with lighting and projections being handled by Mark Brickman (who has done lights for Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, and more). Tickets for all three shows go on sale today, 9/28, at 11 AM.

You can watch the Kickstarter video below...

Oh you can go fuck right off Little Stevie. Piece of shit.

Way too much to charge for this.

I've been in the last row of the Cap - the "nosebleeds" aren't even that far. Still overpriced.

Looks like a good show, but way overpriced.

Pay through kickstater to get this show to happen, then pay these prices to see the show?

all 4 previous posters (10:25, 10:30, 10:32 and 10:36) are the scummiest of the scum of the earth.

denying a band who haven't played together for 40 yrs. a chance to make some change?

watch out for the karma that's surely headed your way ;)

10:44's comment brought to you by Little Steven

Again go fuck right off you twat. Ticket prices for this are way too much money. Plain and simple.

Oh and by the way 10:44, no one denied this band anything. It was their choice not to play together these last 40 years. No one but them made that choice. They could have easily played together many times over the years and made this "change" you speak of.

Also, they have played together in the last 40 years. They played for bigwigs and fat cats for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and then they again played 2 years ago for more of the bigwigs and fat cats at Tribeca Grill for a benefit.

This is just the first "public" performance in the last 40 years. You know the ones that the peons get to see and pay through the nose for.

10:44 = one of the dumbest comments on BV, and that's saying something.

Little $teven and the Rascals vastly overestimate their importance.

will the Bruuuuuuuuce dopes actually pay for this retarded shit out of some misguided loyalty/reverence to/for Little Steven?

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2012 11:26 AM

no such luck, 10:46. and by the way, i couldn't give 2 craps about the rascals and i have zero interest in little steven (or springsteen).

but the only thing "Plain and simple" is you (and your fellow cheapsters) - with the emphasis on simple.

Expect one or more of these shows to be taped for a concert DVD, then later aired on PBS every so often. This is the value option.

lulz at 10:44 & 11:55


We pissed off Rockin Daddy

As if it weren't pathetic enough to pay through the nose to see this show, you may have your fat old ass shown on PBS doing some sad arrhythmic version of the watusi.

^in Port Chester!

i've got no beef with Kickstarter, but come on, seriously. If Mr. Van Zant wants to put this band back together, i believe it's safe to say that he's got enough cash lying around to help them out. asking fans, um, that's kinda lame! it's one thing for some indie band whose van got robbed on tour, etc. But if you have a Springsteen compatriot on your team, really, you are all good...

^AND you're 60+ years old. smh @ this whole kickstarter age.

1:48 Kickstarter says as much about a live CD/DVD....so yeah, you are more or less correct.

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2012 2:32 PM

i think steve said he'd foot the bill even if people gave zero dollars. 'people got to be free' but music don't have to be.

Posted by anonymous | September 28, 2012 2:52 PM

10:44/11:55 overpaid on kickstarter for his name to be projected on the wall
