LIVE REVIEW: Loverboy at Vibrant Arena in Moline, IL on September 6, 2022
I have been a music fan as long as I can remember. I bought my first album in 1975 and went to my first concert in 1978. I love all forms of music, but rock-n-roll has been and always will be my favorite. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I heard Loverboy was coming to Vibrant Arena as part of the Live & Unzoomed Tour!
Many bands go through a lot of member changes throughout the years, but Loverboy has stood the test of time with 4 of the original 5 band members still touring. Formed in 1979, Mike Reno is still belting out the vocals, with Paul Dean on guitar, Doug Johnson on keyboards, Matt Frenette on drums, and Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve on base since 2001.
Being the opener for the night, Loverboy was only able to perform 8 songs, but every song was over the top fantastic! All songs were top hits from their first 5 albums, including “Lucky Ones”, “The Kid is Hot Tonight”, and “Working for the Weekend”.
Like me, Loverboy is getting up there in years, but still have that passion for music! They sounded and great and did a superb job warming up the crowd for the night!
SETLIST: Notorious – Lucky Ones – Queen of the Broken Hearts – The Kid is Hot Tonight – Lovin’ Every Minute of It – Hot Girls in Love – Turn Me Loose – Working for the Weekend
