Winger
PINELLAS PARK – Legendary hair metal rockers Winger, Great White, Slaughter and Stephen Pearcy of Ratt will take the stage at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Saturday, July 5. Gates open at noon.

Local favorites Sobriety X and Stone Gray Band will also perform.

Vendors will sell food and drinks inside the venue; no coolers allowed; blankets and lawn chairs welcome.

General admission tickets are free; VIP tickets are $29.98. Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketfly.com.

Winger’s original band members – Kip Winger, Reb Beach, Rod Morgenstein and John Roth – reunited in 2006 after more than a decade apart. They released a successful comeback album, “IV,” a concept record that built on the band’s classic sound and portrayed military life from a soldier’s perspective.

Following this, they toured the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan, recording a live album along the way. When they returned from tour, they set out to write the album “Karma,” which was released in 2009.

This past April, the group released “Better Days Comin’,” its sixth studio album. It debuted at No. 21 on the Top Current Rock Albums Chart and No. 85 on the Billboard 200.

These days, Great White founder Mark Kendall (guitar) is joined by 29-year veterans of the group, Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards) and Audie Desbrow (drums), as well as lead singer Terry Ilous and bassist Scott Snyder.

Best known for the 1989 smash “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White’s worldwide sales are approaching 10 million. Their song arsenal also includes “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love,” “The Angel Song,” “Mistabone,” “I’ve Got Something For You” and “Feeling So Much Better,” the current track “Complicated.”

Their latest album, “Elation,” was released in 2012.

Slaughter found stardom in 1990 with their first album “Stick It to Ya,” which yielded several hits including “Up All Night,” “Spend My Life,” “Mad About You” and “Fly to the Angels.” The album reached double platinum status in the United States. The band tours regularly though it hasn’t released an album since “Back to Reality” in 1999.

Stephen Pearcy is the former frontman of Ratt, performing with the group on and off between 1971 and April of this year. He’s also been in a number of short-lived bands and released several solo albums.

Ratt reached its peak in the 1980s, with several gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums. They’re best known for their biggest hits, “Round and Round” and “Lay It Down.”
