Official Press Release
Local music favorites The Hooters made a much-anticipated return to the stage in Philadelphia,
playing at the Electric Factory on November 21st, the night before Thanksgiving, and again on Friday November 23rd.
The band’s Thanksgiving show tradition continued as they debuted their new CD, “Time Stand Still”.
As a special thank you to Philadelphia and all local Hooters fans, a free copy of the “Time Stand Still” CD
was given away with each paid ticket to either show — the only way to get the new material
in advance of its release in February 2008. The Electric Factory show featured songs from the new record,
as well as all the hits that brought the band national and international success, including “And We Danced”,
“Day By Day”, “All You Zombies” and “Satellite”.
Opening both shows was Philly’s own 80s pop sensation, The A’s, who reunited in celebration of the
30th anniversary of their founding. Front man Richard Bush, who now plays the tri-state area regularly with his band,
The Peace Creeps, said this show was pure A’s, featuring all the original members including guitarist Rick DiFonzo
playing their most popular songs including “Woman’s Got The Power” and “Secret Agent Man”.
