Although John Waite’s “Missing You” revolves around a long-distance relationship, the song’s aching emotion has traveled all over the globe for nearly 30 years, pouring out of speakers to tug at listeners’ heartstrings.

Fans of Tommy Tutone’s signature hit may have trouble remembering the digits of a friend, but they’ll never forget the number of the elusive Jenny: 867-5309.

The galvanizing theme of the Brat Pack film by the same name, John Parr’s “St. Elmo’s Fire” echoes the hopeful ambitions of the movie’s broken protagonists in its chorus: “I can see a new horizon/underneath the blazin’ sky/I’ll be where the eagle’s flying/higher and higher.”

The musicians behind some of the 1980s most gargantuan hits, John Waite, Tommy Tutone, and John Parr cross their guitar necks on Mayo Performing Arts Center’s sprawling stage for an evening packed with nostalgia, new tunes, and blazers sewn from feathered hair. Waite, a prolific British rocker and former lead singer of The Babys and Bad English, has 10 studio albums under his belt, including 2011’s Rough & Tumble, all which showcase his impassioned, rasp-inflected tenor. The Tommy Heath-led band Tommy Tutone has been penning and performing its brand of bottom-heavy power pop since 1978, producing two other notable singles in the form of “Angel Say No” and “Get Around Girl.” Parr, former collaborator with Meat Loaf and consummate touring musician, rounds out the musical extravaganza, lending his vibrato-filled pipes to songs from Mission, his new album dedicated to military personnel.
