July 8….Arena Rock: A Tribute to Foreigner and Journey
- The Cactus proudly presents a tribute to two legendary pop-rock bands which helped define the music of the 1970s and ‘80s. Foreigner sold over 80 million records since their formation in 1976...with hits including "Hot Blooded", "Juke Box Hero", "Dirty White Boy" and "Urgent"...just to name a few. Combining the ability to rock sold-out arenas with the delivery of mellow ballads such as "Waiting For A Girl Like You"....Foreigner has indisputably left their mark on the world of rock. Journey may well be the ultimate example of arena rock from this same period. They delivered scorching rock anthems like "Any Way You Want It", "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Wheel In The Sky" to the delight of millions. Just as impressively, they scored just as many hits with softer gems like "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'", "Open Arms" and "Faithfully". With mastery of both sides of the rock-pop coin, the legacy of Journey continues to inspire scores of aspiring vocal groups today. Tickets only $20 for this rock solid night of fun.
