… uh, maybe… Depends on your taste for famous film actors playing music.
As a promotion with Netflix, movie stars with long-standing rock-n-roll dreams will perform live — as the opening acts for their own films. And each event takes place in cities where the films took place.
The Netflix LIVE! On Location Summer Series:
The Big Easy (1987), screening at New Orleans’ Spanish Plaza with Dennis Quaid & The Sharks — June 21 (great timing as Ellen Barkin gets back in the fray with Ocean’s 13)
Diner (1982), screening at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor with The Bacon Brothers (starring Kevin) — July 15 (an all-time favorite film of mine)
Armageddon (1998), screening at Kennedy Space Center’s Rocket Garden with The Bruce Willis Blues Band — August 2 (this movie’s still a great crowd-pleaser)
Next up: Russell Crowe’s 30 Odd Foot of Grunts tears it up with a Gladiator screening at the Coliseum. Yes, of course we’re kidding.
TODAY’S QUESTION: Which of these three events would you attend? COMMENT
