For more than 30 years, LOVERBOY has been “Working for the Weekend” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” has been a staple of many gym workouts. Both songs are by legendary classic rock bands, Loverboy and Survivor, who will be live on stage on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at the Town Toyota Center. The classic rock show is locally presented by Community Glass.
LOVERBOY, forming in Calgary, Alberta in the early 1980’s has sold more than 10 million albums, earning four multi-platinum plaques, with songs such as“Lovin’ Every Minute of It,” “This Could Be the Night,” “Hot Girls in Love,” are among some of the fan favorites. LOVERBOY, known for their trademark red leather pants, bandannas, big rock sound and high-energy live shows are sure to draw thousands to the Town Toyota Center in September.
Coupled with Survivor, which was formed in Chicago in 1978 by guitarist/songwriter, Jim Peterik is known for fan favorite songs like “Is This Love,” and “I Can’t Hold Back”.
The high water mark for RAIL came in 1983 when their personal manager Maria Cooper submitted a video of "Hello" (against the band's wishes) for an MTV contest called the "Basement Tapes". Unsigned rock groups would compete with their videos with viewers calling in to vote on their favorite. RAIL's reservations about being thrust into the cattle call quickly evaporated when out of 40,000 videos submitted worldwide, "Hello" wins the preliminary rounds and eventually the Grand Prize of a recording contract with EMI Records.
Now, twenty years later, RAIL has re-released Special Editions of these landmark albums, packed with bonus tracks and special enhance CD content with videos, interviews and much more. These compilations have been released as a tribute to all their great fans, friends and family who supported the band for those exciting early years.
Tickets start at only $39.00.
