Loverboy - Thursday, Sept. 16 - FREE concert

Loverboy - Thursday, Sept. 16 - FREE concert
Loverboy formed in Toronto, Canada, in 1980 with band members Mike Reno, vocalist; Paul Dean, guitarist; Scott Smith, bassist; Doug Johnson, keyboardist; and Matthew Frenette, drummer. Later that same year and with the help of producer Bruce Fairbairn, Loverboy released its self-titled debut album. The album went platinum in both Canada and America and featured the hard-rocking singles “Turn Me Loose” and “The Kid is Hot Tonight.” Its follow-up album, Get Lucky, was released in 1981 and included the anthemic “Working for the Weekend.” Loverboy’s 1983 release, Keep It Up, featured the hit single “Hot Girls in Love.” In 1985, the group released Lovin’ Every Minute of It with producer Tom Allom (Judas Priest). Allom gave the band a harder edge on this platinum album. Fairbairn returned as the producer for the group’s fifth album, Wildside, which was released in 1987. After a two-year tour, the band returned to Canada to release in 1989 its greatest hits album, Big Ones. That same year, Reno and Dean announced plans to make solo records, which put an end to the group. The reunited lineup returned in 1997 to release the album Loverboy XI. Most recently, the band released their greatest hits album, The Real Thing, in 2009. For more information on Loverboy, please visit

*Details on this to Kansas State Fair Ticket Holders:
The Kansas State Fair announced today Howie Mandel will be unable to perform at the Kansas State Fair due to a change in his television filming schedule.

The Fair has secured the classic rock act Loverboy (“Working for the Weekend”, “Almost Paradise”, “Turn Me Loose”) to fill the Thursday, Sept. 16 date, and the Loverboy concert will be free for all fairgoers with a paid outside gate admission to the Fair. For more information on Loverboy, please see biography below.

Since the Howie Mandel concert tickets provided included gate admission into the fairgrounds, your station’s Howie Mandel promotion/giveaway winners can use those concert tickets for free outside gate admission to the Kansas State Fair. Please encourage the ticket winners and your listeners to take advantage of the free Loverboy concert at the Kansas State Fair.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change in plans causes. We thank you in advance for your help with this and for all your support of the 2010 Kansas State Fair. If you have any questions, please let us know.
