Many of the rockers that performed during one of the greatest decades of rock 'n' roll will be on stage at the Clay County Regional Events Center as one band takes the stage to perform the best of the 1980s.

On Saturday, Oct. 20, Hairball returns to the Clay County Regional Events Center, bringing to northwest Iowa a concert epitomizing some of the decade's most colorful rockers. Show time is 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

The audience will get to experience the band paying homage, with singers in full costume, to Bret Michaels, AC/DC, Guns 'N' Roses, Prince, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Twisted Sister, KISS and many more.

Mike Findling, Hairball founder, said the audience won't know if they're seeing Alice Cooper or Gene Simmons of KISS perform or if it's really Hairball's Bobby Jensen and Kris Voxx. Jensen and Voxx take turns in authentic costume performing as the different rock 'n' roll legends.

Seasoned rock stars, every one of them, Hairball band members take pride and passion in their recreation of the most influential acts in rock history. The lights, the sounds and the performance will have you wondering if this isn't the real deal! With two lead singers you get "Gene Simmons" breathing fire while "Bon Jovi" is waiting in the wings to blow the roof off. The dizzying special of non-stop rock for two plus hours is a world class show you will never forget.

"These are dead-on impersonations," Findling said. "One will be on stage performing while the other is back stage changing. The pyrotechnics, the lighting, the gymnastics and theatrics all reflect the party atmosphere of a concert in the 1980s. Hairball is the 'ultimate '80's rock impersonation act, re-creating the atmosphere of the decade.'"

Tickets are on sale now at a discounted rate.
