Being the lead singer of a famous band requires nerves of steel, a surplus of swagger, and the patience to endure Cleveland’s rambling, uncomfortably personal answer to “How you doin’ tonight, Cleveland?” Catch master showmen in their element with this GrouponLive deal to see Hairball at Memorial Hall of Racine Civic Center on Saturday, May 11, at 6:30 p.m. For $15, you get one general admission ticket (up to a $26.85 value, including all fees). Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Heart-stopping metal riffs, pyrotechnic explosions, and meticulously ratted coifs shine onstage during Hairball’s epic “celebration of arena rock.” Whether donning iconic outfits and channeling legendary rock gods and rock devils, or using their nimble digits to strum and drum as themselves, the six gentlemen of Hairball set eardrums aflame with songs of the ’70s and ’80s. Rock chameleon and lead singer Kris Voxx metamorphoses with eerie precision. Swathed in a pink costume topped with a kinky platinum wig, Voxx becomes the spitting image of Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider; in ruffled shirt and purple tailcoat he’s Prince; and in studs and shades he’s Judas Priest’s Rob Halford. Joe Dandy is capable of cycling through identities including Axl Rose and David Lee Roth, while Rockstar Bob dons Gene Simmons’ famous Nehru jacket.
