Rock of the Eighties Tour

Friday August 31, 2018 at 8 PM

The Romantics, The Motels, and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band


The Rock of the Eighties Tour brings together three of the MTV era’s top bands - The Romantics, The Motels and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band - for one great night of rock and roll on Friday, Aug. 31 at Youngstown’s Stambaugh Auditorium.

The Romantics’ first show was on Valentine’s Day of 1977. Bred on the mean streets of Detroit’s east side, they were inspired by the British punk invasion and their hometown rock scene. More than 40 years later they are regarded for well crafted pop rock songs and high-energy live shows and one bona fide classic rock single – “What I Like About You.” The group reached their commercial peak following the release of 1983’s In Heat, which featured the hits “Talking In Your Sleep,” “One in a Million” and “Rock You Up.”

The Motels, led by vocalist Martha Davis, are one of the most successful and acclaimed new wave bands to emerge out of the Los Angeles scene of the late 1970s. The band released five albums on Capitol Records between 1979 and 1985, two of them earning gold record status and generating two Top Ten singles, “Only the Lonely” and “Suddenly Last Summer.”

John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band got its start in 1972 in Rhode Island. They first achieved success with a 1980 self-released single pairing two of their now-classic songs, “Wild Summer Nights” and “Tender Years,” which sold over 10,000 copies and enjoyed excellent radio play up and down the Atlantic seaboard. The group achieved international fame when producer Kenny Vance offered them the score to a movie soundtrack he was producing based on a best-selling novel about a fictional legendary bar band, “Eddie & The Cruisers.” The soundtrack reached the Top Ten, and produced a Top Ten hit single - “On the Dark Side.” The album was eventually certified triple platinum. The group's 1985 follow-up album was highlighted by the title track “Tough All Over.”
