Western Financial Place in Cranbrook will be hosting a Classic Rock Music weekend on Saturday February 28th, featuring one of Canada’s most iconic rock bands….LOVERBOY…With their trademark red leather pants, bandannas, big rock sound, and high-energy live shows LOVERBOY has sold more than ten million albums, earning four multi-platinum plaques, including the four million-selling Get Lucky, and a trio of double-platinum releases in their self-titled 1980 debut, 1983’s Keep it Up, and 1985's Lovin’ Every Minute of It. Their incredible string of hits includes, in addition to the anthem “Working for the Weekend,”, ‘Lovin Every Minute of It," "This Could be the Night”, ‘ Hot Girls in Love,” Heaven In Your Eyes,” ‘When It’s Over,” "Queen of the Broken Hearts”, and of course one of the greatest rock anthems of all time “Turn Me Loose.”
LOVERBOY went on to win a still-record six Juno awards in 1982, and until a 3 year sabbatical in 1989, were one of the top 5 grossing touring acts in the world, performing in over 100 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Their success made them the first Canadian group ever to earn Columbia Records’ exclusive Crystal Glove Award, celebrating the sale of over five million albums outside their native country. They were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in March of 2009 at GM Place in Vancouver, where they joined the likes of Neil Young, David Foster, Leonard Cohen, and Bryan Adams.
LOVERBOY consists of original members, vocalist Mike Reno, guitarist Paul Dean, Doug Johnson on keyboards, and Matt Frenette on drums. Ken Sinnaeve has replaced the late Scott Smith on bass. The band continues a healthy touring schedule around the world and will make Cranbrook one of their stops on February 28th at Western Financial Place.
The opening act for the night of Classic Rock will be none other than Nick Guilder and Sweeney Todd. Earning multi Juno and #1 platinum status, the band’s songs continue to enjoy considerable radio play, with their classis songs including “Roxy Roller”, "Hot Child in the City” and “Here Comes the Night”. Having toured with The Cars, Cheap Trick, Peter Gabriel, Foreigner, Styx, Journey, New York Dolls, The Babies, even Hall of Famers like Chuck Berry, Gilder and the band deliver a powerhouse performance.
