Sheehan will spend time with Frank-fm host TJ Michaels and Barre City Mayor Thom Lauzon this morning on the radio in the 8am hour talking about what it was like to be in one of the biggest bands in the world in the late 70’s, The tragic passing of band mate and friend Brad Delp, The Super group he’s bringing to Barre and the effort to help restore the Barre Auditorium.
Frank-fm program director and host of Frank’s Big Morning Gig, TJ Michaels explains that the Barre Auditorium is such a great venue. “I call it the B-ball Palace, it truly is a great place for High School Basketball state tournaments, It’s a beautiful building that could be used for so much more than that! Everybody likes to go see their favorite artists play, what they don’t like is traveling all the way to Boston, Albany or Manchester to do so. We partnered with the City of Barre and local businessman Larry Morrison on bringing this show to prove it can be done and if successful we hope to see many other acts rock the Aud!”
Barre City Mayor Thom Lazuon adds, “The Barre Auditorium is One of the most underutilized facilities in Central Vermont. To bring a show of this caliber to Central Vermont has been a long time coming!”
