In a related story... On the same evening as Historic Premier Performance of The Rascals Once Upon A Dream... At a Rolling Stones concert at a nearby venue. Two Stones fans were sternly reprimanded by security during a pre-concert incident. Apparently the malay began when a Mr. (name withheld) who works as a Wall Street trader, pointed and snickered at another concert goers; (name withheld) who is a Venture Capitalist from Aspen CO.; orange faux snake skin e-reader case which was bedazzled with the trademark trademarked Rolling Stones tongue. The conflict quickly elevated to name calling and tongue wagging. Some names which were overheard being bandied about were: stinky, do do head and numb-nuts. Many of the other Stones fans ran for cover as the insults began flying. Security was able to gain control of the situation and it was fist bumps all around. The 2 men were reported to be entering the arena together singing you Can't Always Get What You Want. During the concert, 2 members of the Rolling Stones organization approached the gentleman who was carrying the fore-mentioned bedazzled e-reader cover to make sure it was a genuine Rolling Stones trademarked item. The leader of the Stones merchandise knockoff investigation team was later quoted as saying, when asked about the outcome of the investigation, > "he's good". Genuine Rock n' Roll lives! At least for a few more days at The Capital in Port Chester. THE RASCALS ARE BACK!

If it looks like a rascal , walks like a rascal and talks fast like a rascal , he probably is a rascal. They could at least stream him the concert from his cell, after all he waited 20 years for the show. Now this is rascalmania .
