Every month, except November and December, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando hosts a live concert called Velvet Sessions. It’s a 21 and over event that features classic rock and pop artists performing in an intimate club-like atmosphere.
This month, Night Ranger will be performing on Thursday, October 27 , 2016.
Night Ranger earned international acclaim in the early ’80s with the release of the band’s debut album Dawn Patrol, and its hit single, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.”
Their follow-up effort, 1984’s Midnight Madness, contained Night Ranger’s best-known hit, “Sister Christian,” as well as “When You Close Your Eyes,” and “Rock in America.” “Sister Christian” peaked at #5 on the Billboard charts. Both albums went on to receive platinum status, as did the band’s third album Seven Wishes, which was released in 1985.
With a career spanning more than three decades, Night Ranger has sold more than 17 million albums and performed for audiences around the world. The band will release a new live album entitled 35 Years And A Night In Chicago via Frontiers Music Srl on December 2, 2016, with a studio album planned for 2017.
Night Ranger consists of Jack Blades on vocals and bass guitar, Kelly Keagy on drums and vocals, Brad Gillis and Keri Kelli on lead and rhythm guitar, and Eric Levy on keyboard. Visit nightranger.com for more info on the band.
