Loverboy set to rock Fallon County Fair

By Lori Kesinger

   Leather pants and classic high-energy 80s music, Loverboy will be bringing their legacy sound to the Fallon County Fair for a one-night concert Saturday, Aug. 22.


   Canadian rock band Loverboy entered the music scene in 1980 with their self-titled debut album. They rapidly became one of America’s most popular rock bands, selling more than ten million albums throughout their musical career.

   Loverboy accumulated four multi-platinum albums and numerous international gold albums from 1980 to 1987. Their tours sold out arenas and stadiums nationwide. Their hit singles include “Working for the Weekend”, “Lovin’ Every Minute Of It”, “When It’s Over”, and “Queen of the Broken Hearts”. They released their newest album “Unfinished Business” last year.

   Loverboy also played on mega tours with Journey, Bob Seger, Cheap Trick, ZZ Top, Kansas, and Def Leppard, and were one of the first bands ever featured on the MTV music channel.

   Loverboy still includes original members Mike Reno – vocals, Paul Dean on guitars, Doug Johnson on Keyboards, and Matt Frenette on drums, with Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve (a former member of Dean and Frenette’s pre-Loverboy band Streetheart), who replaced the late Scott Smith on bass.
