American rock band Player is best known for their 1977 hit single, Baby Come Back. They have been through numerous lineup changes and hiatuses, but are now back with an all new lineup with original frontman Peter Beckett leading the band. One of the stops on this tour was the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California. It was a calm and quiet Wednesday night in Hollywood which was the perfect setting for this show.
After a few opening acts, it was time for Player to hit the stage for old and new fans to enjoy some rocking tunes. Player started the show with Man on Fire. Even after all these years, Beckett still has it with talent and showmanship. The show went on as Player played many of their hits including This Time, How Long (Ace cover), Twist of Fate and My Religion. Fans could be seen cheering singing along, and dancing to the music. Player would also bring out some guests for the show which were Elliot Lurie (Looking Glass band) and Mary Harris From Ambrosia who is also the wife of Player drummer, Burleigh Drummond. Nearing the end of the show, it was time to bring out the song that everyone was waiting. The familiar guitar intro started and everyone gathered as close as possible to hear Player sing one of the most popular rock/love songs, Baby Come Back. Player would end the show with Wildside and called it a night and left the stage. The audience stayed for a bit and after a quick break, Beckett came back out to introduce the band as well as talk about life and music as well as an encore song. That encore song would be House is a Rockin’. Beckett once again thanked the audience for coming out and left the stage once again. Player has left their mark in music history and still show no signs of slowing down.
