PENTICTON - Two iconic rock bands will perform at Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre in September.

Styx and Canada’s own Loverboy will play the events centre on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Styx is the first rock band in history to have four consecutive certified multimillion-selling albums in a row; including 1977’s The Grand Illusion, 1978’s Pieces of Eight, 1979’s Cornerstone and 1981’s Paradise Theatre.

The band, which originated in Chicago in 1972, has a string of hits including “Lady,” “Come Sail Away” and “Man in the Wilderness.”

Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend” is considered a rock anthem. The group, which has three decades in the business, includes Penticton guitarist Mike Reno.

The band has toured with Journey, Bob Seger, Cheap Trick, ZZ Top and Def Leppard, selling more than 10 million albums.

Loverboy’s hits include “Lovin’ Every Minute of it,” Turn Me Loose,” “Heaven in Your Eyes, “ and “The Kid is Hot Tonight.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. and are available online at www.valleyfirsttix.com  in person at the Valley First Box Office, or charge by phone at 1-877-763-2849.
