Buy Tickets button

The Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center pays tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, on Friday, Oct. 28, with an event featuring Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Experience.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert are $30/$35.

“Who’s Bad’s live power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical must-see. We can’t wait to welcome them to the Wayne Theatre stage,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre.

Who’s Bad is the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing in 2009.

The band has packed The House of Blues franchise all across the United States and rocked DC’s famed 930 Club, playing to a dedicated fan base by paying studious attention to Michael Jackson’s every original groove and gravity-defying dance move.

The ensemble boasts more than 100 years of professional experience and a team of dancers with resumes that include Broadway productions such as Phantom of the Opera. Who’s Bad founder, composer, and saxophonist Vamsi Tadepalli assembled a cast of North Carolina’s premiere musicians and, from Who’s Bad’s inception, believed in the band’s boundless possibilities.

The vocals and pinpoint choreography of frontmen Joseph Bell and Taalib York’s combined with the six-piece band’s synchronized dance routines, blaring horns and down-deep rhythms, results in a performance delivered with soul and precision superseded by no one but the King himself.

Who’s Bad has shared stages with the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, The Backstreet Boys, The Four Tops, Boys II Men, and hip hop superstar Pitbull.

The Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center is located at 521 West Main Street in downtown Waynesboro.
