Brat and Eon of Time Reunion Show
Friday, September 25 @ 6–10 PM
Frentress Lake Bar and Grill (East Dubuque, IL)

A convergence of ‘80s rock and roll awesomeness is coming to East Dubuque when two top local bands from days gone by come together for a reunion sure to melt your face off or at least split your spandex right up the hoohoodilly region if you try to fit into them after 40 years. The bands I’m referring to are Brat and Eon of Time. This is the 38 year reunion for Brat, featuring Ken Nechvatal, Dick Griffin, David Esser, and Dennis Hoag. Dennis is also a featured performer in the second band as well, Eon of Time. As the lead guitarist for both bands, it’s likely his return from Florida to the Tri-States that made this whole reunion come together. The 42nd reunion for Eon of Time also features musicians John Rogerson, a special guest, and one time member, Dale Griffin. The evening of rock is rounded out by locals Renegade and DuRocks. All of this in one night on one stage at Frentress lake Bar and Grill in East Dubuque, IL, on Friday, Sept. 25 from 6 to 10 p.m. Let the totally awesome awesomeness wash over you like a mullet over a sweaty ringer t-shirt. The show is outside and by the water, so you can safely social distance as much as you like and enjoy great food and drinks at the same time. Almost like living in the ‘80s, when the only fear we had was mutually assured nuclear destruction. 818 West Gill Rd, East Dubuque, IL.

Air Supply
Friday, October 9, 7:30 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from March 27. For the first time in nearly 38 years, legendary pop group AIR SUPPLY will return to the Five Flags Center! AIR SUPPLY formed in 1975 when Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met during rehearsals for a stage production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Australia. After mild success in Australia in the late 1970s, the group broke out in the United States in 1980 with the release of their album ‘Lost in Love,’ which sold more than three million copies. They followed that up with two more platinum albums – 1981’s ‘The One That You Love’ and 1982’s ‘Now and Forever’ – plus their gold-certified self-titled effort in 1985.
AIR SUPPLY was one of the most successful groups of the early 1980s on the singles charts. They hit #1 in 1981 with “The One That You Love” and reached the Billboard Top 10 more than a half-dozen other times, with signature songs like “All Out of Love,” “Lost in Love,” “Even the Nights are Better,” and “Making Love Out of Nothing At All.” In addition, the group reached the Top 40 of the Adult Contemporary chart fifteen times, most recently in 2010 with both “Dance with Me” and “Faith in Love.”
AIR SUPPLY last graced the Five Flags Center stage in July of 1982, while supporting “The One That You Love.” That show followed another Five Flags performance by the group just ten months earlier. The two shows drew a combined crowd of more than 6,600 people!
Ticket Prices: $98.00 – $42.00*
VIP “Lost in Love Experience:” $179.00*
Get tickets at the Five Flags Center Box Office (and avoid ticket fees) from 10 AM-5PM, M-Fr. (563)-589-4258 or online at FiveFlagsCenter.com or Ticetmaster.com.

Midwest Spring Jam with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Twista, and Do or Die
Saturday, October 10, 8 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from March 14. Five Flags Center’s next hip hop showcase, “Midwest Spring Jam,” will feature a trio of popular Midwestern acts. Headliner Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will be joined by guests Twista and Do or Die. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been ranked among the greatest rap groups of all time. The Cleveland-based quintet debuted in 1994, shortly after Eazy-E signed them. The following year, they released their breakout album, “E. 1999 Eternal,” which topped the Billboard albums chart. The album contained the hits “1st of tha Month,” “East 1999,” and “Tha Crossroads,” which would become the group’s best-performing single. It topped Billboard’s Hot 100, Rap, and R&B charts in the summer of 1996. Twista has been one of the pre-eminent names in the Chicago hip hop scene for more than a quarter-century. His breakout came in 2004 with the release of his album “Kamikaze.” The disc’s lead single, “Slow Jamz,” was a collaboration with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx that hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first #1 for all three artists. Twista followed “Slow Jamz” up with his second Top 10 hit, “Overnight Celebrity,” which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Solo Rap Performance. Fellow Chicagoans Do or Die are also longtime veterans of that city’s hip hop landscape. Their first mainstream success came in 1996, when their debut single “Po Pimp” reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 while topping the publication’s Rap chart. Ticket Prices: $29.00-$69.00* Get tickets at the Five Flags Center Box Office (and avoid ticket fees) from 10 AM-5PM, M-Fr.

Lee Brice
Saturday, March 13 @ 7 PM
Five Flags Arena

Rescheduled from May 7, 2020. Brice was one most successful country artists of the past decade. Since releasing his debut album in 2010, Brice has been a nearly constant presence on country radio and online streaming services. He has piled up more than 14 million RIAA-certified sales and streams, including nearing three billion spins on Pandora, making him one of the streaming service’s most-played country artists of all time. In fact, Pandora inducted Brice into its “Billionaires Club” in June of 2018, making him only the second country artist the honor. Lee is also a GRAMMY nominee, a CMA award nominee, and a double ACM award winner. He’s taken six radio singles to Number One: “A Woman Like You,” “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” “I Don’t Dance,” “Drinking Class,” and “Rumor.” He’s also performed on numerous TV shows, including NBC’s Today, ABC’s The Bachelor, NBC’s The Voice, and FOX’s coverage of the 2018 Miss USA pageant. As a songwriter, Brice’s tunes have been recorded by the likes of Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, and Kenny Chesney. He co-wrote Garth Brooks’ most recent #1 song, “More Than a Memory,” which was the first song to ever debut at the top of Billboard’s Hot Country chart. He also penned the Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” which Billboard ranked as 2011’s top country song. $33–$77. 405 Main St. 563-589-4254. fiveflagscenter.com.

Styx
March 14 @ 7 PM
Five Flags Arena
Styx, the band responsible for some of the most memorable rock music of the 1970s and 1980s, will come to Five Flags for the first time ever. Styx draws from more than four decades of barn-burning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. Originally formed in 1972, Styx hit its stride with guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw’s first LP with the band, 1976’s Crystal Ball, which included the Top 40 hit “Mademoiselle.” The group then became the first group to score four triple-platinum albums in a row: The Grand Illusion (1977), Pieces of Eight (1978), Cornerstone (1979), and Paradise Theater (1981). Over the ensuing decade, Styx weathered the shifting winds of the public’s musical taste, reconvening for a highly successful 1996 Return to Paradise tour. Styx has continued to receive praise for its live performances into the 21st century. On the 2006 live album One With Everything, they joined Cleveland’s Contemporary Youth Orchestra to create a hybrid orchestral rock blend for the ages. The band performed at its peak in tackling every track of two of their finest platinum-selling albums on 2011’s The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live. Styx also re-recorded two full discs of classic material for the aptly-titled Regeneration Volume I & II, released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. 405 Main St. 563-589-4254. fiveflagscenter.com.

The group’s extraordinary showmen electrify crowds with a one-of-a-kind live show, mixing Nashville standards, soaring originals, and quick witted-humor which brings audiences to their feet with energy and laughter.
Home Free’s fifth studio album, “Dive Bar Saints,” was released July 26 under Home Free Records. The quintet’s extensive catalog includes five Top 5 albums, including their breakout 2014 debut “Crazy Life,” which hit #1 on iTunes Country chart and #4 overall following their victory on NBC’s ‘The Sing-Off.’ To date, they’ve sold more than 350,000 albums worldwide, including 100-million career audio streams, and 291-million views on YouTube.
Come to Five Flags Center on April 24 for HOME FREE’s DIVE BAR SAINTS: WORLD TOUR, which promises to be a perfect evening of upbeat Nashville-dipped pop hits, country and western standards, incredible harmony, and quick-witted humor.
Ticket Prices*: $19.50, $29.50, $39.50

Tape Face
March 27, 2021 @ 8 PM
Mississippi Moon Bar, Diamond Jo Casino
Rescheduled from September 26, 2020. Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking, drama with no acting. Viral sensation Tape Face has to be seen to be believed.
Tape Face, real name Sam Wills of New Zealand, gained national attention during his run in 2016 on America’s Got Talent as a season 11 finalist and again in 2019 on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. He has headlined two limited engagements at Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas in 2017 and now a multi-year residency at Harrah’s Las Vegas. He uses no dialogue in his performance, stretching black electrical tape across his mouth. His show is a series of comedy bits and sleight-of-hand magic acts, often with audience members pulled to the stage and, has been a top draw on his world and U.S. tours.
This truly is comedy made for everyone, guests must be prepared to get involved and become heroes on stage, as they step inside a comedy world unlike any other. Visually stunning, heart-stopping, and hilarious, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and when it’s all over you’ll be completely speechless. Just like Tape Face.

Ashley McBryde
Friday, April 23, 2021 @ 8 PM
Diamond Jo Casino Mississippi Moon Bar
Dubbed by NPR as “country music’s most exciting new country voice,” Ashley McBryde fearlessly lays it all on the line, and it’s that honest all-in approach that has led to The New York Times critic Jon Caramanica to opine that “the still beauty in her singing is impressive, but her easeful storytelling feels practically radical.” McBryde’s album showcases an artistic vision that proves her to be one of the genre’s keenest working storytellers, bringing unwavering honesty back into a pop-preoccupied genre. She’s been described as a combination of Bonnie Raitt, Lzzy Hale, and Loretta Lynn, and that’s not wrong: McBryde isn’t afraid to tell the truth, get raw and real and use the spirits of country, folk and rock when it serves her greater purpose. At three, she’d secretly pluck her father’s guitar like an upright bass, and after about the 17th time being caught, her father bought her a guitar of her own. When she was twelve, she played her very first composition for her parents and grandparents. Her first EP, the self-released 2016 Jalopies and Expensive Guitars was just a taste of what McBryde could do, and, on her full-length debut, she melds her songwriting chops with the vision of producer Jay Joyce, peppering her tales with a touch of guitar-driven rock fury – but offering plenty of room for her emotive, vulnerable twang to move softly through songs like “Girl Goin’ Nowhere,” which was written the morning that Guy Clark passed away. McBryde indeed played “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” at her Opry debut, and still performs it on stage to crowds that now sing along. Opening for Ashley is Adam Hambrick. As the son of a Baptist pastor, Adam’s musical roots are in the church, singing hymns with his family. They are in the country and bluegrass standards that his grandparents love, and they are in the pop hits that defined the 90s and 2000s. These are the influences that have guided Adam to write songs that have been recorded by Justin Moore, Miranda Lambert, Eli Young Band, Dan + Shay and more. 301 Bell St. 563-690-4758. moonbarrocks.com.

Bob Saget
April 24, 2021 @ 7 and 9:30 PM
Diamond Jo Casino Mississippi Moon Bar
Known for his legendary work as an actor and stand-up comedian, Bob Saget debuted his comedy act over 30 years ago, touring the comedy circuits in Los Angeles. In 1987, his big break in show business came when he was cast as Danny Tanner in the ABC network’s television show, Full House. After eight seasons on the show, and nearly 10 seasons as the host of ABC’s, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Saget returned to the stand-up stage and has since become one of the most sought-after comedians in the industry. Saget wins over audiences by embracing his unconventional and provocative style, delivering unabashed, “blue” comedy while recounting tales from his personal life and storied career in the entertainment industry. 301 Bell St. 563-690-4758. moonbarrocks.com.

Insane Clown Posse
Thursday, May 6 @ 7 PM
Five Flags Arena
Insane Clown Posse, the pioneers of horrorcore hip hop, will perform in Dubuque for the very first time when they take the stage at the Five Flags Center. Founded in Detroit in 1989, the Insane Clown Posse, or ICP, quickly found an audience for their unique style of hip hop, called “horrorcore,” that blends supernatural and horror-themed lyrics with traditional hip hop beats. The group, comprised of founding members Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J, have released more than 50 albums and collaborated with artists ranging from Three 6 Mafia to Vanilla Ice to Jack White. In addition to their music, Insane Clown Posse, has also developed fans through other ventures, including producing and starring in a pair of feature films: “Big Money Hustlas” and “Big Money Rustlas.” They have also ventured into professional wrestling, contributing music to albums released by both the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s. ICP eventually formed its own wrestling promotion, dubbed Juggalo Championship Wrestling. Fans of the group are known as “Juggalos.” According to the group, Juggalos come from all walks of life and often consider themselves a family. ICP live performances are typically marked by attending Juggalos spraying bottles of Faygo-brand soda at the stage. $35 Advance; $40 door. 405 Main St. 563-589-4254. fiveflagscenter.com.

The Mavericks
May 22, 2021 @ 8 PM
Mississippi Moon Bar, Diamond Jo Casino
Rescheduled from July 17, 2020. The Mavericks – masters of country-Latin rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse – rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like “What A Crying Shame” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.” Then, they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic “Dance The Night Away,” a 400,000-seller in the UK. Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004 The Mavericks went on hiatus while frontman, Raul Malo, explored new musical avenues.
But since a reunion in 2012, the band has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts on the touring and festival circuit across the planet. It’s a reputation based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly, and Latino sounds plus, a riotously entertaining, world-renowned live show.
The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great song-writing traditions of Cuba and Miami, and of Nashville, San Antonio, and Memphis. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good.

Rescheduled from August 30, 2020. Blackberry Smoke, a genre-defying group known for carrying on the tradition of southern country rock, touts two Billboard chart-topping country albums, 2015’s “Holding All the Roses” and 2016’s “Like An Arrow.” For good measure, the latter also topped Billboard’s Americana/Folk album chart. Their latest full-length release, 2018’s “Find a Light,” debuted as the best-selling Country and Americana/Folk album in the country, entered at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart. A portion of the proceeds from Blackberry Smoke’s special new EP, “Live From Capricorn Sound Studios,” will go to the Recording Academy’s MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. The project consists of six new versions of songs that have special ties to the historic studio and town and will be released as a lead up to the band’s anticipated “Spirit of the South Tour.” 405 Main St. fiveflagscenter.com.
