Silver Legacy brings to the Grande Exposition Hall two iconic rock-n-roll bands. Three Dog Night and Night Ranger perform, one evening only, Friday, September 27 at 8 p.m.
Legendary music icons, Three Dog Night, celebrate their 4th decade with some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets. Three Dog Night’s hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures -- songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity. The Grammy-nominated band is not content resting on their legacy alone. Always working to expand their audience, Three Dog Night have embraced and been embraced by 21st century music technology. New fans buy Three Dog Night’s music on iTunes as well as at record stores. In fact, their releases from this decade alone have sold well over a million copies and the band’s continued popularity has landed “The Best of Three Dog Night : 20th Century Masters” on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart for 9 of the last 12 months. Recently, Three Dog Night began adding new songs to their arsenal by releasing their first double-A sided single in nearly 25 years like the blistering performance of "Heart Of Blues" and the timely, beautiful a-cappella ballad "Prayer of the Children.”
Three Dog Night also pushed boundaries by recording with the London Symphony Orchestra, giving fans new and old a chance to experience their dynamic performances of the hits as well as several new songs. The project, recorded at the famous Abbey Road studios in London and released to coincide with the band’s 35th Anniversary, added exciting new orchestral arrangements to Three Dog Night’s signature sound. Their well-loved hits plus some amazing new songs are performed for audiences spanning generations, by founding members Cory Wells and Danny Hutton on lead vocals, as well as original keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon and guitarist Michael Allsup. Paul Kingery (bass and vocals) and Pat Bautz on drums complete the lineup.
Night Ranger was formed when five hard-rockin’ kids from the San Francisco Bay Area joined forces in the early 1980’s. 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 "(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; Rock of Ages hit Broadway musical and film; 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 band also made a special guest appearance on ABC’s hit reality TV show, Bachelor Pad! Night Ranger, in celebration of their 30th Anniversary, continues their non-stop touring, playing to sold-out crowds around the world.
Night Ranger released a very special CD/DVD package which was recorded live in an intimate acoustic setting. The result is compelling and exciting live renditions of the band’s classic hits with new, refreshing arrangements; tracks include “(You Can Still) Rock In America”, “Sister Christian”, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” and a timeless cover of Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer.”
