Come October, General Hospital's Liason Heads Toward Chicago

Come October, General Hospital's Liason Heads Toward Chicago

By Garrett Godwin

Since 1999, you have been watching these two onscreen becoming best friends and confidants with an incredible amount of sweet yet sexual tension.  And for eight years, you have wanted their characters to be together.

Well, your wish will come true, as Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst host the first annual Liason event coming this fall in Illinois.

Liason is short for Port Charles heroine Elizabeth Spencer and brooding yet sensitive bad boy mob enforcer Jason Morgan.  They're one of General Hospital's most rising and popular super couples, who fans can't get enough of since the two met at Jake's on August 27, 1999.

The couple's supporters are so dedicated that they published ads on Soap Opera Digest in late 2002 and spring 2003 to demonstrate their love for Liason.  Even a couple of fans came on SOAPnet's Soap Talk to not only show their love for Liason, but also to explain to hosts Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway why they love Jason & Elizabeth.

The first annual Liason event will take place Saturday, October 20, 2007 at Zanies Comedy Club, near Chicago.

The address: 230 Hawthron Village Commons
                    Vernon Hills, IL 60661

The tickets are $105 each, with two menu items minimum.  The event will be a meet-and-greet between Steve and Rebecca from 2-5 pm, seating opens at 12:30 pm.

To purchase tickets, call 847-549-6030, and/or go online at

And, don't miss Jason & Elizabeth finally admit their feelings for one another on General Hospital, weekdays on ABC; weeknights and weekends on SOAPnet.
