Winger with Lita Ford in Concert
Friday, November 25
Winger and Lita Ford together in concert! Two rock legends on one historic stage live!
Hard rock greats Winger - formed by former Alice Cooper band member Kip Winger - burst out of New York City with a debut album, "Winger," that achieved platinum status in the United States and gold in Japan and Canada. Winger stayed on the Billboard Top 200 chart for over 60 weeks, where it peaked at #21. It spawned such hits as “Seventeen” and “Headed for a Heartbreak.”
In 1990, Winger was nominated for an American Music Award for “Best New Heavy Metal Band”. Their follow-up album, In the Heart of the Young, was released in 1990 and just like their first album, reached platinum. It peaked at #15 on Billboard’s Top 200 and hits off this album include “Can’t Get Enuff”, “Miles Away” and “Easy Come Easy Go”. Winger has made a name for themselves with relentless touring, while winning fans and critics alike because of their exceptional musicianship, Kip Winger’s powerful vocals and the band’s incredible songwriting.
Lita Ford is one of the all-time great female rock guitar players, having established herself at just sixteen as lead guitarist for the legendary all-girl band The Runaways. Her leads were an integral part of the band's sound. The band's talent and drive lifted them above the novelty of their bad-girl image and launched successful solo careers for Ford and Joan Jett.
Following The Runaways' breakup, Ford launched a solo career with the debut album, "Out for Blood." Her next release, "Dancin' on the Edge" and Ford's popularity began to rise. The single "Fire in My Heart", reached the Top 10 in several countries. The follow-up single, "Gotta Let Go," reached number one on the Mainstream Rock charts. The ballad "Close My Eyes Forever", a duet with Ozzy Osbourne, is her most successful song, reaching No. 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
