The Cars at the Fillmore Auditorium, 05/15/11

AN EVENING WITH THE CARS
05.15.11 | Fillmore Auditorium

Within the pantheon of rock and roll, there are relics, and there living legends. Last night at the Fillmore, on the fourth show of its current tour, the Cars proved that they are far from antiquity. In fact, the quartet blew a packed house away with a set that, while heavy with new material, still managed to bring tears to the eyes of fans who never thought they would see the evening come to fruition -- after all, the Cars have been on ice for almost a quarter-century and frontman Ric Ocasek proclaimed (on several occasions) that the band would never reunite.
