  37. Loverboy with Special Guests The Tubes

    January 25, 2020, 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM @ Genesee Theatre

    When you think of arena rock bands during the MTV era, few can top the success of Loverboy. With 11 Top 40 hits, four multi-platinum albums and millions of records sold, the group's heart-pounding shows were a hot ticket to be had. Today, with most of the original band members intact, Loverboy continues to impress audiences from coast to coast. During their heyday, The Tubes carved out a niche somewhere between glam rock and eccentric '70s punk. The formula worked, as the charismatic theatrical rockers scored several hits and a cult following that continues to this day. From the opening number to the final encore, it's easy to see why their music, stage shenanigans and magical rapport with the audience continue to draw fans.
