Halloween: Black Celebration Tribute Bands Concert
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Halloween: Black Celebration Concert was Monday October 31, 2011 / 8:00pm.
The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred

I really enjoyed coming to this Halloween: Black Celebration Tribute Bands Concert with Blasphemous Rumors, Rio and The Cursed! I love Depeche Mode music and Blasphemous Rumors totally delivered it last night on cue just as I have heard them before when I saw them playing last New Year's Eve at the OC Fairgrounds. Adding some Duran Duran with Rio and The Cure with The Cursed with a nice compliment for the evening. I had fun dancing with all of these bands!

I had seen all 3 bands before, but it was nice to see them on a big stage, with great sound & lights. I enjoyed their energy and hearing the hits live. Unfortunately I had another Halloween commitment and had to leave before the headliner...continued
Halloween: Black Celebration will feature popular tribute bands Blasphemous Rumors, Rio, and The Curse at City National Grove of Anaheim.
Blasphemous Rumours, honoring Depeche Mode, started the Music for the Masses in 2006 and have exploded onto the tribute world scene! Andy Singer, aka David’s Gone, has emerged as one of the top performers in the tribute band world with his deep baritone voice which has an eerie resemblance to Dave Gahan. His dynamic persona onstage captivates the most hardcore audience members and guarantees a fun and exciting show! Denny Rambo, aka Doc Martin, is a veteran of the music world, a virtuoso guitar player who has played in many touring bands. He captures the essence of Martin Gore with an uncanny resemblance and a haunting vocal performance. Jake Jordan, aka WilderFletch, is the sound mastermind and synth player. Jake resembles both the essence of Andrew Fletcher and has the ability to play with the accuracy of Alan Wilder. A wizard at the boards he really gets the crowd going!
The Curse was formed in 2003. Originally just an idea by singer Brian and former guitarist Jesus while still in high school, today The Curse has become known as “The Ultimate Tribute to The Cure.” The band has performed dozens of shows to thousands of fans over the course of 7 years, many of them being sold out shows in some of the top venues in Southern California. Because of their dedication to remaining true to The Cure sound, their performances have won the respect of die-hard Cure fans, young and old. While The Curse makes no attempt to dress as The Cure, this well-dressed group usually in suits have won praise from such icons as Richard Blade who has said, “Close your eyes and you would swear you were in a small crowded London club in the early 80s with Robert and the boys playing away at the height of their power.”
Rio is a San Diego based Duran Duran tribute band composed of dynamic live performers who embody and channel the Duran Duran of the mid-80’s Rio era. Playing note-for-note renditions of Duran Duran songs and reproducing the high energy feel of a mid-80s Duran Duran concert, with hits spanning the band’s entire catalog. Rio have played the top venues in Southern California, and are currently the only high profile full-time working Duran Duran tribute band in the United State
