80’s Rock Band Loverboy will be “Working for the Weekend” at Cannery
Bandanas, fast cars and loud music, Loverboy will bring their trademark red leather pants and classic high-energy 80’s hits to Cannery Casino for a one-night concert on Saturday, June 29, 2013. 

In 1980, Loverboy burst onto the music scene with their self-titled debut album. They quickly became one of America’s and MTV’s most popular rock bands, selling more than 10 million albums throughout their musical career. From 1980 through 1987 Loverboy garnered four multi-Platinum albums and numerous international Gold albums. Their tours sold out arenas and stadiums nationwide.

Their hit singles include the anthem “Working for the Weekend” and arena rock staples such as “Lovin’ Every Minute of It,” “This Could Be the Night,” “Hot Girls in Love,” “Heaven In Your Eyes,” “Turn Me Loose,” “When It’s Over,” and “Queen of the Broken Hearts.” Their music has come to define an entire generation of rock-concert fans.

“I look at our concerts as a 100-minute experience,” says guitarist Paul Dean, who still claims to be able to fit into the same pair of red leather pants he wore on the “Queen of the Broken Hearts” video in 1983. “I’m a normal guy up until 10 minutes before we hit the stage. Then the heart rate goes up and I consciously step into the bubble. And I don’t come out of it until 30 seconds after that last cymbal smash and I walk off-stage. It’s a great stress release, better than riding a Harley.”

“When we do live shows these days, I notice the songs have come to a better place,” says lead singer Mike Reno. “We’re playing them a little differently, but the catalyst is still the same. We love these songs—they’re part of ourr DNA, and they’re part of a lot of people’s DNA.”

Tickets start at $14.95 and can be purchased 24 hours a day at www.cannerycasino.com or by calling the Cannery box office at (702) 507-5757.

The Cannery Casino is located at 2121 E. Craig Road (Two blocks west of I-15) in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
