CenterStage Lunchtime concerts at the World Trade Center
If you find yourself with the workaday blahs in lower Manhattan this summer,
a lunchtime concert at the World Trade Center by some of yesteryear's most
notable hitmakers may be just the tonic you're looking for. At the Plaza
(accessible by any World Trade Center building) every Tuesday at noon,
various Top 40 legends will regale the crowd at CenterStage with two 45-minute
sets, so grab a to-go container of pasta from Sbarro's and start
Legendary singer-songwriter Alex Chilton appears on July 17 with his hitmaking '70s
group The Box Tops. You know their hits "Cry Like A Baby," "The Letter" and
"Soul Deep." July 24 will find the Plaza grooving out to the sounds of The
Troggs' hits such as "Wild Thing," "A Girl Like You," and "I Can't Control
Myself." On July 31st there's a very special guest to be announced. (Here's a
hint he's British.)
