A Night with Loverboy and Survivor presented by Angel Of The Winds Casino Resort will feature a night of ‘80s rock on September 22nd at XFINITY Arena at Everett.
After countless sellout stadium tours, three multi-platinum albums and a string of hit singles that have since become the party anthems of an entire generation, Loverboy stands today as one of the most beloved rock acts in modern history.
The band was formed in Calgary in 1980 and is comprised of vocalist Mike Reno, guitarist Paul Dean, keyboardist Doug Johnson, drummer Matthew Frenette and bassist Ken "Spider" Sinnaeve. The group’s 1980 eponymous debut featured the rock singles “Turn Me Loose” and “The Kid Is Hot Tonite,” collectively propelling the release to gold status in both the band’s native Canada and the United States. It was the anthemic “Working for the Weekend” however which truly delivered Loverboy mega-rock attention. The group continued their success with 1983’s smash hit “Hot Girls in Love” and 1985’s “Lovin’ Every Minute of It”.
Legendary rock band Survivor is embarking on their next chapter with a new member who has seemingly given new life to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s preeminent bands. With 22-year-old Nashville resident Cameron Barton assuming lead vocalist duties, the group will take their trademark arena rock sound to their loyal and devoted fan base.
Survivor’s big break came in 1982 when the band was asked by Sylvester Stallone to provide the theme song for Rocky III. That single, “Eye Of The Tiger,” hit # 1 – staying there for seven weeks, winning a Grammy for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal, a People’s Choice Award, Academy Award and a Golden Globe nomination. The band’s song “Burning Heart” also appeared on the soundtrack of Rocky IV in 1985, hitting #2 on the singles chart.
