NIGHT RANGER- Mon, Oct 13. With over 30 years in the business and more than 17 million albums sold worldwide, Night Ranger has proven they can still “Rock in America” It all started when five hard-rockin’ kids from the San Francisco Bay Area joined forces in the early 80’s to form Night Ranger. Like no other rock band, Night Ranger both epitomized and transcended the sound and style of that decade. In 1983, Night Ranger earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album Midnight Madness, which included their smash hits “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America.” Over the years, the band’s music has made notable contributions to and been featured in many different areas of media and popular culture. Night Ranger’s songs can be heard in the “Rock Band” and “Guitar Hero” video games; the hit Broadway musical and film Rock of Ages ; the Oscar-nominated film Boogie Nights; FOX’s hit TV Shows American Dad, and Glee; JBL’s “Hear The Truth” campaign; and many more!

The poor tea seller has his life changed forever when a young girl is abandoned at the busy station, and brings the place to a standstill with the beauty of her singing. And he finds himself at odds with the Gods of Hindu divinity with their interwoven mysteries of true love, tragedy and joy. “Generous spirited…. I came out feeling rejuvenated as well as entertained.” (Sydney Morning Herald) Tickets are $28, half-price for kids. Pre-show dinner by Star Anise Indian Cuisine. Show starts at 7:30pm.
