Smash Mouth Still Around, Performing at Dolphin Stadium Tailgate Party This Thursday
(Photo via Smash Mouth's MySpace page.)
If a band exists solely to keep the party going -- as California's Smash Mouth clearly does -- it makes perfect sense to catch that band in a tailgate-party setting before a huge football game. For this appearance, Smash Mouth takes a detour from its usual casino engagements to play the Dolphin Stadium parking lot as part of the pre-game celebration for the BCS National Championship. Before Florida faces Oklahoma, fans should be treated to such appropriately party-minded chestnuts as "All Star," "Can't Get Enough of You, Baby," "Then the Morning Comes," the band's re-working of the Monkees' "I'm a Believer," and, of course, its, um, smash hit, "Walking on the Sun."
Smash Mouth performs at the Budweiser National Championship Tailgate Party presented by Allstate. Thursday, January 8, Dolphin Stadium NW Bus Parking Lot, 2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens. Party begins at 11:30 a.m., Smash Mouth performs at 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $22. www.ticketmaster.com.
