Howard Jones, 80s synth pop star will be coming to the Sandy Amphitheatre in July to perform. When I saw that I thought oh this venue must be one of those places that books nostalgia acts. Then a few people at work mentioned this to me and also mentioned how many times they’ve seen Howard Jones. Turns out he’s very popular in Utah and visits often. I don’t think he’s a nostalgia act here. One of my work colleagues sends me a daily “HoJo” video from youtube to entice me to buy a ticket. I may go just to experience. He told me I needed to brush up on the material because here in Utah his concerts are sing-a-longs.
Don’t know who Howard Jones is? Here’s a video of one of his popular songs. It’s shockingly mellow.
