Ned Colletti and the band, Chicago
Over the last few years, Ned Colletti has become very involved in the Guide Dogs of America and about six months ago, he mentioned to KABC’s Peter Tilden in passing that his favorite band was Chicago. Well, KABC stepped up to make a really cool event out of these two seemingly unconnected entities.
On October 22, KABC and Ned Colletti will host a concert at the Saban Theatre and it will serve as a fundraiser for the Guide Dogs of America and The Foundation Fighting Blindness.
Some of our younger readers might not know Chicago or, they think they don’t know Chicago. But given that they’ve sold more than 100 million records, including 21 Top 10 singles, they’re the real deal. Those who know them can affirm that.
And TalkRadio 790 KABC will donate 100% of all ticket sales to Guide Dogs of America and The Foundation Fighting Blindness. It’s really cool that they are doing this and it’s great that Ned has been able to combine a cause close to his heart with a band he really loves.
You can purchase the tickets presale at kabc.com with the password KABC and after that they’ll be available at Ticketmaster.
The Cubbies are coming to town
It’s always amazing how many people I know who are looking for tickets when the Cubs come to town. I guess it’s a lot of Chicago transplants in LA or just the fact that it’s two of the most famous teams in baseball squaring off, but I’d imagine we’ll have some pretty large crowds these next four days. Hope you all will be a part of it.
Four more days until the All-Star break, so it would be great to close it out in a strong way.
Meanwhile, I’ve seen enough of Mike Stanton for now. It’s great and all that he’s a local product, but he beat us up pretty nicely over the three days here. It was cool to hear him talk on the PRIME TICKET pregame Dodgers Live about coming to Photo Day as a kid. I’m sure there will be a ton of kids here this Saturday when the annual event takes place.
That’s all I’ve got for now…
