Night Ranger, Firehouse, Dokken & Warrant to headline 80s Rock Weekend at Coushatta
If you are a fan of 80s rock music, then find your favorite glam rock metal T-shirt and head to the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana for 80s Rock Weekend featuring two nights of rock music inside The Pavilion. Night Ranger will perform on Friday, June 27 with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the band taking the stage at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Firehouse along with Warrant and Dokken will perform beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets to each show are $30 and can be purchased at the venue or Ticketmaster.
Forming in 1980, or so, many of the original members of Night Ranger are still with the band singing the hits “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “(You Can Still) Rock in America,” “When You Close Your Eyes” and the massive 1984 ballad, “Sister Christian.”
Three of the original members remain with Firehouse, who formed in 1989 and were popular for the songs “Don’t Treat Me Bad” and “Love of a Lifetime.”
Warrant has been around for more than 30 years but lost lead singer Jani Lane in 2011 due to acute alcohol poisoning. The band retooled with vocalist Robert Mason and continue under the Warrant banner performing the tracks “Down Boys Go,” “Heaven” and “Cherry Pie.”
Don Dokken actually formed his band in 1976 and went through several hiatuses. He reunited with original drummer “Wild” Mick Brown, who is back on the road with Dokken. Popular songs are “Breaking the Chains,” “Into the Fire” and “Dream Warriors,” which was used on the soundtrack of the 1987 horror flick A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.
