(Night Ranger Can Still) Rock in State College

They’re motoring. Even if it has been been three decades since their peak.

Night Ranger, a rock band founded in 1982 that has sold more than seventeen million albums, will hit the State Theatre on Tuesday, August 20. They will be in Happy Valley as part of their ‘Still Rockin in America’ tour. Night Ranger’s hits include “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” and, the seventeenth runner-up for the next US national anthem, “(You Can Still) Rock in America.”

Tickets will cost $36.00-$46.00.

Because of the band’s longevity and popularity, it has woven its way into American pop culture. Night Ranger has been featured in musical compilations such as Glee and Rock of Ages. Of course, American Dad has the best tribute to the rockers.

Night Ranger plays the Tuesday before classes start for Fall 2013, a semester chock full of musical acts.
