Unfortunately, the days of rock bands being the focal point of modern entertainment are pretty much over. Back in the day, rock bands were everywhere. The driving forces of the time were Zeppelin, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Skynyrd, Deep Purple, Sabbath, and The Who.

Another name that comes to mind that isn't quite as well known is The Little River Band. Chris Marion's silk like vocals and Wayne Nelson's heavy bass lines made for a one of a kind combination. The band has had it’s fair share of breakups, line-up changes, and re-unions over the years, but they’re finally back on the road again.

Although it's been quite a while since the band has released any new music, I'm thankful that they're at least still touring. The Little River Band will be coming to Minnesota – playing Treasure Island Casino in Welch.

They will serve as the opening band for the one and only - Rod Stewart. It's a pretty solid line up if you ask me. You can catch The Little River band opening for Rod Stewart at Treasure Island Casino in Welch on Saturday, August 24th. The show will kick off at 7 pm and tickets are available online now for as cheap as $39.
