Dinosaur rock lovers delight. Some of the 1980s’ biggest rock acts are still rolling and planning an April 28 stop at Roanoke Civic Center.
Styx, which put on an impressive show at Salem Civic Center in 2010, is the headliner. REO Speedwagon, whose “Take It On The Run” is running through my head as I write this (er, thanks for that, Speedwagon) is second on the bill. Ted Nugent, who is better known these days for shooting things and arguing on gun control, is also on the show – if the U.S. government hasn’t murdered or rendered him. We hope that he is less concerned with that remote possibility than with woodshedding his bad-arse hard rock guitar chops.
Tickets are $75, $65 and $45 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Roanoke Civic Center’s box office, 877-482-8496 or hometownbanktix.com.
