Loverboy Heading Back On The Road, Including Stop In Syracuse
Loverboy is slowly announcing its spring and summer dates, with the band kicking things off on April 20th in Rama, Ontario, and winding things down on September 13th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Frontman Mike Reno told us that when he and guitarist Paul Dean formed Loverboy in 1979 they made a concerted effort to make each member as important as the next: "When Paul and I put this band together, we hand picked those guys, we split everything five ways. Everybody felt a piece of the band, because they were. Everybody got paid the same, we split it all up, there was nobody making any more than anybody else, and that means everybody has to dig in. There's no, like, 'I'm not makin' any money, this guy's makin' all the money. . . ' Y'know, that happens, that's what breaks band up. And we knew that going in. And Paul and I said -- I said to him, 'Y'know, if we just split it, split the pie right in five; and the touring and the working -- and the sales of records.' And it worked, it was an honor system. Y'know, I'm not going to be the weakest link."
