Patty Smyth & her band Scandal will appear on PNC Pavilion's stage with Rick Springfield and Greg Kihn on Friday, September 6th at 7:30 which also features a pre-show wine tasting.  Smyth is replacing Eddie Money who cancelled his remaining tour dates due to pneumonia complications from a heart valve procedure and is also dealing with stage 4 esophageal cancer.  The tour will move up to Rose Music Center the next night, September 7th.

Elaine began their conversation mentioning that she saw Patty on tour with John Waite many years ago.  They discussed the members of her band, multi-generational fans, and a new recording that's coming out in January.  Patty also mentioned that she calls New York City home with her kids and husband tennis legend John McEnroe.  They also mentioned her self-titled 1992 album (that went gold), the song "Hands Tied," and covers of "Whole Lotta Love" and "Piece of My Heart" that she probably won't be performing this tour.
