Warrant, Winger, ’80s acts play Scheels Arena

FARGO – The age of big hair, arena anthems and power ballads lives on as Warrant, Winger, Jack Russell’s Great White and L.A. Guns play Scheels Arena in Fargo on May 17.

Winger scored hits with “Seventeen,” “Headed for a Heartbreak” and “Miles Away.”

Warrant debuted in 1989 with “Down Boys” and followed that up with “Heaven” and “Cherry Pie.” Robert Mason took over lead vocals after Jani Lane died in 2011.

Great White front man Jack Russell split from the group in 2009 and formed his own lineup he helped found 30 years earlier and formed his Jack Russell’s Great White, which plays the band’s hits, including “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love” and a cover of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.”

L.A. Guns, featuring original vocalist Phil Lewis and drummer Steve Riley, are best known for “The Ballad of Jayne.” They played Moorhead’s Garage Bar in March.

Tickets for the 7 p.m., all-ages show go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday. Tickets are $20 for reserved seats, $50 for general admission pit, or $75 for a VIP package, which includes admission to the pit and a meet-and-greet with all of the acts.

Tickets are available at the Tickets 300 box office, Scheele Arena, at jadepresents.com or (866) 300-8300.
