War will perform in shows this week
We jumped the gun last week when we announced War's two concerts here and on Maui, so ...
War, in fact, arrives this week, with shows Thursday at Pipeline Cafe and the following day at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
And as founding member Lonnie Jordan says, "Don't call it a comeback, call it a flashback!" While he and the band will be pumping out the hits, Jordan would like fans to know that he released a solo project last year called "War Stories," the first chapter of his self-described musical autobiography.
It's a mixture of reinvented War favorites, such as "Me and Baby Brother" and "The World Is a Ghetto," covers of Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix classics, and new originals.
Tickets for the Pipeline show are $35, $60 VIP, with a percentage of proceeds going to the Diamond Head International Music Festival. Tickets are available at the club's box office, Blaisdell box office and Ticketmaster outlets. Call 591-2211 or 589-1999.
Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. Friday concert on Maui are $35, $45 and $55, available at the MACC box office. Call 242-7569.
