Just announced, HAIRBALL visits the Rialto Square Theatre

Tickets Onsale 12/1 at 10AM!
A Rock & Roll experience you won’t forget!
Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
Vocalists Bobby, Steve and Joe Dandy lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night. The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Blake on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they’ve cultivated over decades of tireless performing. These guys live and breathe Rock & Roll!
As important to Hairball as the music are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they’re 8 or 85, Hairball fans bring an unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that completes the Arena Rock experience. Hairball knows it wouldn’t exist without its fans, and takes every opportunity to let them know that.
Don’t confuse Hairball with the countless “’80s Tribute” bands across the country. Hairball is an event; an attitude and expression of music and showmanship that isn’t a retro-flashback. It’s a way of life…and it’s not going away!

Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage – note for note, cut for cut, using the best musicians. “Think of it as a recital,” says Martin. “These albums are historic and stand the test of time.”

With 100+ shows a year across North America, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success in performing arts centers and theaters. Fans in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, New York and central and eastern Canada have all continued to support the series and make it a sustaining, successful show.

“We’re really looking forward to connecting with music lovers across all of North America,” says Martin. “The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac albums are the staples of our continued success, but we reserve the right to surprise, with albums such as, Prince’s Purple Rain and Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell. There is no shortage of classic albums that need the respect and care that only Classic Albums Live can administer.”
