With more than 17 million albums sold worldwide and more than 3,000 live shows performed, Night Ranger has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style of their era and beyond. They have earned widespread acclaim and multi-platinum and gold album status, all while leaving their indelible mark on the music charts with a string of bestselling albums like “Dawn Patrol,” “Midnight Madness,” “7 Wishes,” “Big Life,” and “Man in Motion.”

Night Ranger’s initial popularity was fueled by an impressive string of instantly recognizable hit singles, such as “Sister Christian,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock in America,” along with “Sentimental Street,” “Goodbye,” “Sing Me Away,” “Four in the Morning,” and more.

For more than 30 years, Loverboy has been “Working for the Weekend” and, on the weekends, delighting audiences around the world. With their trademark red leather pants, bandannas, big rock sound, and high-energy live shows, Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums and has earned four multi-platinum plaques.

The rock quintet has produced a long string of hits, including “Working for the Weekend,” “Lovin’ Every Minute of It,” “This Could Be the Night,” “Hot Girls in Love,” “The Kid is Hot Tonite,” “Turn Me Loose,” “When It’s Over,” “Heaven in Your Eyes,” and “Queen of the Broken Hearts.”

It promises to be an exciting evening of ’80s rock and roll anthems when these two groups join forces on one stage.
