Weekend watch: Vince Neil and Arch Allies
If you didn’t get your fill of 1980s and ’90s hard rock when Hairball played a few weeks ago, two shows this weekend should fill your ears with radio gems.
Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil returns to The Venue at The Hub, 2525 9th Ave. S., Fargo, to sing tunes from his mostly covers album, “Tattoos & Tequila” and surely a couple of Crüe tunes. As an added ’80s bonus, his band features Jeff Blando and Dana Strum of Slaughter. Music starts at 8 p.m. Friday and tickets are $20 for this ID-only show. (866) 300-8300
If stadium anthems and power ballads are more your speed, check out Arch Allies on Saturday at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds, 1805 Main Ave. W., West Fargo. The tribute act plays hits by Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon. The show starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 the day of the show.
