Joey's Badfinger concert in Ohio

• July 15, 2000 •

From the flyer:
Get ready for three outstanding bands! Find a relaxing spot on the lawn and enjoy the sounds of Worldwide, Badfinger and The Grass Roots.

...Badfinger, that's right, Badfinger is up next with hits like "Come And Get It," "No Matter What," "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue." The band sold over 14 million albums world-wide in the first six years they were together.

The weather was almost perfect. Beautiful blue sky, white puffy clouds, low 80's and a nice steady breeze from the Northwest. The show started about 6:45 PM with a local Cincinnati group called Worldwide. They combined a mix of traditional and R&B sounds into a unique blend to start the concert off. Worldwide finishes up their set about 7:30 PM
