Starship circa 2023—featuring singer Mickey Thomas—and John Waite have been announced as the acts that'll close out the 101st annual Chasco Fiesta at New Port Richey’s Sims Park on Saturday, April 1.

Tickets to see Starship feat. Mickey Thomas and John Waite go on sale this Friday. General admission seats go for $20, and everything else that is reserved starts at $25. A separate $5 entry fee to the festival itself is required for entry.

The 9-day shindig will also have musical acts that go beyond ‘80s rock. Country musician David Nail and “America’s Got Talent” alum Drake Milligan take on a co-headlining country gig on March 31, and before that, there will be nights devoted to R&B, Native American music, and of course, local staple The Black Honkeys.
