Winger Unveil Plans for 25th Anniversary Reunion Concert
It’s a big year for Winger, as the rock band are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of their self-titled debut album. To honor this achievement, the band will perform the disc in its entirety at a reunion concert next month.
The lineup of frontman Kip Winger, drummer Rod Morgenstein, guitarists John Roth and Reb Beach, and original keyboardist Paul Taylor will perform at the show, which takes place Aug. 30 at the San Felipe Casino in Algodones, N.M. Joining the band for the concert are special guests Warrant and ’70s rock vets Head East.
Best known for such hits as ‘Seventeen’ and ‘Headed for a Heartbreak,’ which both appeared on their self-titled debut, Winger was one of the more successful hard rock bands of the late ’80s. The group first split in 1994, but re-formed for two albums over the last decade. In recent years, Kip Winger served as a counselor on VH1′s Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp and has expanded his creative horizons with music composition. Winger provided the music for Ghosts, a production by the San Francisco Ballet that will be performed by the company this October at New York City’s Lincoln Center.
Winger are currently working on a new album, and the 25th anniversary concert is also being recorded as a live CD/DVD release. A limited number of VIP passes as well as new merchandise are available at the band’s webstore. To keep abreast of any reunion concert updates, check out Winger’s official Facebook page for details.
