Pop/rock band Pablo Cruise kicked off the 2017 River Rhythms concert series Thursday night before of a gathering of 8,147 people at Albany's Monteith Riverpark.
It's a return trip to Albany for the group, which played the annual event in 2009.
The group's third album, "A Place in the Sun" (1977), was led by the hit single — and probably its most recognizable song — "Whatcha Gonna Do?" The release went double-platinum.
Pablo Cruise saw five hit singles reach the Top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart from 1973 to 1985.
Up next for the summer concert series will be country singer John Michael Montgomery on July 13 at the Linn County Fair, followed by folk-rocker Matt Nathanson on July 20, Celtic rock band The Young Dubliners on July 27, a Michael Jackson tribute band called MJ Live on Aug. 3, and country singer Tracy Lawrence on Aug. 10.
A fireworks display will follow the Tracy Lawrence concert.
