|70s mellow rock sound comes to Rocky Mount|
Mellow 70s rockers Firefall will perform Sunday at the Harvester Center in Rocky Mount at 7:30 p.m.
Friday, August 8, 2014
Seventies rock band Firefall will perform at the Harvester Center on Sunday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
With hits like, "You are the Woman" and "Just Remember I Love You," Firefall combines the mellow, easy, country-rock sound that defined the 70s music scene.
With layered harmonies and driving rhythms, the music of Firefall transcends many genres from rock to country and brought the band platinum and gold success.
Other major Firefall hits include "Cinderella," "Goodbye, I Love You," "Livin' Ain't Livin'" and "Mexico."
In the 70s and early 80s, Firefall toured with big names, like the Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and Fleetwood Mac.
However, the group's commercial success began to decline as Firefall's relaxed, toned-down approach was replaced with new pop trends in the 80s.
Tickets to Sunday's show are $28.50 or $60 for VIP tickets, which include a meet-and-greet photo op with the band, seat choice and sound check access. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The Harvester box office is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
