Skid Row, Warrant, and Lita Ford are keeping the '80s scene alive as the Live to Rock Tour rolls into Hard Rock Live at the Gary, Indiana casino this summer.

The '80 are back in full force as The Stadium Tour finally hits the road in 2022, headlined by the long-awaited Motley Crue reunion. Unstoppable 80s hitmakers Def Leppard are co-headliners, along with glam-rockers Poison and the fierce Joan Jett. How big is fans' appetite for hair bands? The tour has already sold a million tickets and grossed $135+ million.

Many other veteran acts continue to hit the road, with Journey booking a massive tour with Toto and Billy Idol tagging along. Former rivals Styx and REO Speedwagon are traveling together and the band that should have been on the Stadium Tour, Tesla, will play Traverse City's National Cherry Festival as part of their ongoing adventure.

The Stadium Tour has not only fueled nostalgia for the music accompanied by Aquanet and spandex, it may have influenced the way promoters are presenting shows. It seems we're getting more package tours, with (one-time) major acts sharing the stage on the same night. It's even happening at smaller venues like the Token Lounge in Metro Detroit who will host Tom Keifer of Cinderella, Faster Pussycat and LA Guns.

The Live to Rock Tour teams up Skid Row, Warrant, and Lita Ford for a trek that includes a stop at the Hard Rock Live stage inside the Hard Rock Casino in Gary, Indiana. If you love '80s rock, this one is a sure bet.
