Thursday, Aug. 15, 8 p.m.
If you attended a rock concert in the 1990s, chances are pretty good you saw one of the bands touring to the Joint at the Hard Rock Tulsa Hotel & Casino, 777 W. Cherokee St., Catoosa. “The Under the Sun Tour” heads Tulsa’s way with Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray and Gin Blossoms. Show is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. Smash Mouth (“Walkin’ on the Sun”), Sugar Ray (“Fly”) and Gin Blossoms (“Hey Jealousy”) hit the music charts with snappy pop rock songs that happily stood out in the decade when grunge met hip hop oh so briefly. Tickets are $45-$55, available at www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com. Because the show will be at the casino, the show is also for 21 and over only, which is no problem, since those of us who jammed to them back in the day are well over that age.
