Boomtown Reno Hosts Rockin' The Classics Concert20 June 2006
ENO, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Boomtown Casino and Hotel Reno's Rockin' the Classics concert will bring Foghat with special guest Firefall live in outdoor concert at 7 p.m. Friday, June 30.
Formed from original members of rock band Savoy Brown, English rockers Foghat splashed into the 1970s American rock scene with electric-guitar-dominated blues rock. Seminal hits like "Slow Ride" and "I Just Want to Make Love to You" earned the band five gold records and established them as a popular arena rock act, selling out concerts across the country. The band remained popular during the disco era, touring and recording non-stop into the mid-eighties. After disbanding and eventual hiatus, the band reunited under new members, including new vocalist and guitarist Charlie Huhn. In 2000, continuous touring once again brought Foghat music to the people with electrical performances of established rock hits. In 2000, the passing of founding member, and one of rock 'n roll's legendary performers, Dave Peverett, was mourned by thousands of fans.
Carrying the torch of musical forebearers like The Byrds and Fleetwood Mac, country-flavored rock-n-rollers Firefall emerged from the mid-seventies west coast-country rock scene. Eleven chart singles like "You are the Woman" and "Just Remember I Love You" later, the band continued to sell out concerts and rack up platinum and gold album acclaim through the early 1980s before disbanding. The band eventually reformed to release more albums and produce electrifying concert spectacles learned from years of touring beside the likes of Lynard Skynard, The Marshall Tucker Band and others.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Boomtown outdoor concert arena, with $25, $35 and $40 non-refundable general admission tickets available at www.boomtownreno.com or by calling 1-800-595-4TIX. Must be 21 or over.
Boomtown Casino and Hotel is located just seven miles west of Reno on Interstate 80 at Boomtown exit #4.
