70's power balladeers REO Speedwagon, prog rockers STYX, and straight up 80's (hair) metal band Night Ranger are touring and hitting up Cruzan Amphitheater on October 31. Let us break this down for you: If you buy a ticket for this show (and you will), there's about a 99% chance you'll hear Keep On Loving You, Can't Fight This Feeling, Come Sail Away, Mr. Roboto, and Sister Christian all in the same night. Granted you might be able to pull that off if you suffer through a local radio station's throwback weekend, but you'll be lacking that sense of ironic camaraderie that comes with sitting on Cruzan's festival lawn with thousands of like minded rockers hoping the joint makes it to where you're sitting. Individual tickets start at $19.50 and four packs are going for $60 through Live Nation. As a special bonus, if you buy your tickets from July 18 through July 24, you can get lawn tickets for just $10 a piece. Hit the jump for motivation.
