Whenever Tom Cruise comes to Clearwater on Church of Scientology business, he keeps a low profile. Occasionally he'll meet with local leaders or pop into a college basketball game, but otherwise, he's in and he's out and you never hear about it.
His son Connor Cruise, on the other hand? Different story.
Cruise's 22-year-old adopted son with Nicole Kidman lives a relatively open life around Tampa Bay, Instagramming pics of his fishing expeditions and trips to Tropicana Field. An aspiring DJ, he's showed up at 94.1 Wild's Wild Splash in Clearwater's Coachman Park.
And now he's about to host what might be his first advertised DJ gig in Tampa Bay.
Cruise will headline a Halloween party dubbed the "Haunted School of Rock on Oct. 28 at the Hard Rock Cafe inside Tampa's Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The party will be hosted by 93.3-FLZ's Brian Fink and feature sets from DJ T Quest and DJ Santana, as well as a $2,500 costume contest.
Limited early bird tickets are on sale now for $20; otherwise, general admission tickets are $40 at the door, with VIP table reservations available. Click here for details.
Oh, and don't count on Tom showing up in costume for Conner's party -- it definitely doesn't seem like his scene (and if the tabloids are to be believed, he might not be wild about Connor's jet-setting lifestyle).
