Sunrise Entertainment Presents:
Rock of the Eighties

Three of the MTV era’s top bands - The Romantics, Martha Davis & The Motels and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band will come together for one great night of rock and roll on Friday, August 31 at Youngstown’s Stambaugh Auditorium.

The Romantics’ first show was on Valentine’s Day of 1977. Bred on the mean streets of Detroit’s east side, they were inspired by the British punk invasion and their hometown rock scene. More than 40 years later they are regarded for well crafted pop rock songs and high-energy live shows and one bona fide classic rock single – “What I Like About You.” The group reached their commercial peak following the release of 1983’s In Heat, which featured the hits “Talking In Your Sleep,” “One in a Million” and “Rock You Up.”

The Motels, led by vocalist Martha Davis, are one of the most successful and acclaimed new wave bands to emerge out of the Los Angeles scene of the late 1970s. The band released five albums on Capitol Records between 1979 and 1985, two of them earning gold record status and generating two Top Ten singles, “Only the Lonely” and “Suddenly Last Summer.”


For most events, the exterior doors will open one hour prior to the scheduled event start time.
The Elevator is located in the south west corner just inside the ADA / Garden Entrance on the left.
Restrooms may be found on all levels. Accessible (ADA) restrooms may be found off of the ground floor (Ballroom) lobby & across from the elevator on the balcony/third level.
