What's your price for fright?

Good news about the forthcoming Night Ranger tour. I know, I know, sounds impossible — that there could be good news about a band what had two Top 10 hits in the mid-1980s, yet remains together and launches a new record and tour.

(Don't tell me you forgot about "Sentimental Street.")

Here's the good part: They're traveling nowhere near the Southeast. Sorry Oklahoma and Missouri. You're in for lots of Sister Christianing. My pick is the June 22 date in Texas with Styx and Boston. Craptastic!

The dates are as follows. May 11, Oklahoma City, Okla.; May 22, Trinidad, Calif.; May 25, St. Louis, Mo.; June 7, West Wendover, Nev.; June 14, San Juan, P.R.; June 19, Oshkosh, Wis.; June 20, Brookville, Ind.; June 21, Sioux City, Iowa; June 22, Woodlands, Texas; June 28, Cheyenne, Wyo.; July 2, Arlington Heights, Ill.; July 3, Hays, Kan.; July 4, Glenview, Ill.; July 5, Kettering, Ohio; July 6, San Jose, Ca.; July 11, Pryor, Okla.; July 12, Grapevine, Texas; July 19, Fort Smith, Ark.; July 25, St. Clair, Mich.; July 26, Maquoketa, Iowa; July 27, Lake Ozark, Mo.; Aug. 2, Rifle, Col.; Aug. 9, Windsor, Ont.; Aug. 10, Des Moines, Iowa; Aug. 17, St. Joseph, Mo.; Aug. 23, Tower, Minn.; Aug. 30, Pittsburgh, Penn.; Aug. 31, Sparks, Nev. ; Sept. 28, Jackpot, Nev.; Oct. 1, Tulsa, Okla.

Anyone else know that Troy Aikman is in Night Ranger?

Take a good hard look
There ain't nothing ever new"

We think Staffer Dad might enjoy Night Ranger. We think he has their greatest hit on his Ipod. He denies it, but .....

Hey, he can still rock 'n' roll in America!

Only 2 hits? Not true!

What about "Working for the weekend"?

Oh wait. That was Lover Boy.

Never mind. (Oh man, I hope THEY go back on tour.)

They technically had more hits, if you step outside of the Top 10. But I honestly couldn't remember what the songs sounded like. And didn't want to. Ugh.
