’80s Reunion Tour Feels Like High School To Loverboy

VANCOUVER, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot has changed since the 1980s but some things are staying the same for Loverboy lead singer Mike Reno.

The band just started a We Are The ’80s concert tour with Rick Springfield, Eddie Money and Scandal and he says the backstage antics are just as wild as they were back in the day.

In his words, “The backstage area is full of debauchery and naked women.”

But some things have changed, like the bands’ attitude towards their careers. Reno admits: “We’ve all achieved our goals so now we’re having the most fun we’ve ever had.”

The fun goes around to all the bands. Reno says he often joins Money on stage to sing “Two Tickets To Paradise,” and Springfield has been known to jam on Loverboy licks as well.

As he puts it, “It’s like a high school reunion.”

Reno and Loverboy will be on the We Are The ’80s tour through September to promote a new greatest hits collection, We Are The ’80s: Loverboy, a reissue of their 1981 album, Get Lucky.

But the group isn’t living in the past. Reno says Loverboy will release a new album in October called Back For More.
