Who's ready to kick off those flip-flops, slurp back some piña coladas, and go disco dancing barefoot on the sands of Kokomo? The Beach Boys will be there. And Gloria Gaynor too. But, um, it's also gonna cost you $325.
C'mon, people. Don't be so cynical. The big fat pricetag isn't a cash grab. It's actually your generous contribution toward Voices Against Brain Cancer's not-for-profit campaign to eradicate cranial tumors of all kinds through the combined power of science and song.
Admittedly, the fundraiser's lineup is kinda random. As already mentioned, you've got the Boys' surf pop and Gaynor's club anthems. But the Osmond Brothers and Foreigner's lead singer Lou Gramm will also be tossing off some tunes.
And here's the common link: Beach Boys cofounder Carl Wilson fought (and lost) a bout with brain cancer while Wayne Osmond, Gramm, and Gaynor's brother-in-law are all survivors.
