Entertainment The Salina Journal Friday, January 3, 1986 Page 16 'Loverboy' concert tickets selling well .. .Tunth UA. PRIME-TIMER SHOW (*) $925 SEN. CITIZENS ANYTIME More than 3,700 tickets have been sold for Thursday's rock concert by "Loverboy" at the Salina Bicentennial Center. Appearing on the same program will be another popular rock band, "The Hooters." Such a strong advance tickets sale is unusual for a general admission concert, in which there are no reserved seats, Bicentennial Center officials said. The concert will kick off a national tour by "Loverboy." The group is in Salina beginning today to rehearse for the tour. Rehearsals will continue at the Bicentennial Center until the Salina concert. All tickets are $13.50. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, with the concert to start at 8. No lineup will be permitted before 5 p.m. Tickets are available at the center's box office, Del's TV and Tape Center and the House of Sight and Sound in Salina, Bob and Gene's Travel in Junction City and The Brass Ear in Hays. Mail orders are accepted with check or money order and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. They should be sent to Loverboy, P.O. Box 1727, Salina, Kan. 67402-1727. Phone orders are accepted at any time with Visa or MasterCard by calling 823-2288. "Loverboy" will feature its fourth Columbia album, "Lovin 1 Every Minute of It," on the new tour. The album contains their newest top ten single by the same name. The group's last two national tours were sellouts at virtually every stop. The band is eager to hit the road again. "I get bored pretty easy," said Paul Dean, lead guitarist, songwriter and producer. "The rest of the guys are climbing the walls, too, so okay, let's get at it!" Also itching to hit the stage is lead singer Mike Reno. "I've been noticing a lot of light music lately, and I don't like it," Reno said. "Kids want to hear good, aggressive music again, and we're ready to bring it to them." The "Loverboy" rock sound came into being when Dean and Reno formed the band in 1978. Two "Loverboy" will appear in concert Thursday at the Bicentennial Center. years later the group — which also includes bassist Scott Smith, drummer Matt Frenette and key- boardist Doug Johnson — released a self-titled debut album that included the hits, "Turn Me Loose" and "The Kid is Hot Tonight." It sold more than 500,000 units in Canada and 1.5 million in the U.S. The followup album, "Get Lucky," was released in October 1981 and the group then set out on its first headline tour. Until then, the group had been an opener for such acts as ZZ Top, Journey and Kansas. The tour broke many attendance and ticket sale gross records. Meanwhile, "Working for the Weekend" and "When It's Over" established their hold on the North American best-seller singles charts. In April 1982, "Loverboy" made Canadian recording history by sweeping the JUNO awards, Canada's version of the Grammies, by winning in six categories. At the same time, "Get Lucky" went triple platinum in the U.S. In May 1982, the group presented a series of headline shows in Europe and Japan. In the spring of 1983, the group picked up two more JUNOs. Then, following the release of their third album, "Keep It Up," they began a six- month, 140-date concert tour. The album spawned a pair of hit singles, "Hot Girls in Love" and ' 'Queen of the Broken Hearts.'' Marquee Salina movies Jewel of the Nile — Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner star in the sequel to "Romancing the Stone." This time, the comic- romantic pair romp across Africa, pursued by their inept nemesis, Danny DeVito. But there isn't much new, says New York Times critic Janet Maslin. "Sadly for the sequel," Maslin says, "the novelty in that contrast (between the workaday life of a romance novelist and her far- flung adventures) was more than used up the first time around." She says Turner "retains her original feistiness" and comes close to carrying the movie, but Douglas "lacks the dash that this swashbuckling role demands." — Mid-State Cinema, Rated PG 101 Dalmatians — The 1961 Disney classic is back for Christmas. Mean, villainous Cruella De Vil steals a huge litter of darling Dalmatian puppies to make fur coats. A chase across the English countryside for the dognapper ensues. The animation is superb in great Disney style. — Sunset Plaza Cinema, Rated G Out of Africa — Meryl Streep and Robert Redf ord star in what could be the movie team of the year. Streep plays the Danish baroness-novelist Isak Dinesen (whose real name was Karen Blixen). She operates a coffee farm in Kenya in the early part of this century. Redford is a maverick pioneer who steals her heart, despite her love for her husband. The film is based on Dinesen's autobiographical novel by the same name. It's a "big, physically elaborate but wispy movie," writes Vincent Canby in The New York Times. Streep is intelligent, intense and obsessive in her role, but "with the exception of Miss Streep's performance, the pleasures ... are all peripheral ..." — Sunset Plaza Cinema, Rated PG INTRODUCES THE 2-DAY MOVIE RENTAL WINTER SPECIAL!

Rocky IV — Boxer Rocky Balboa has catapulted himself into the realm of international diplomacy in this movie, battling a Soviet villian in a contest he describes as "Us against Them." He battles Ivan Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren, a vicious fighting machine, with a wife (Brigitte Nielsen) to match. "There's nothing new about the screenplay ..." says Janet Maslin in The New York Times. "Nor is there anything novel about the visual style that places heavy emphasis ... on slow-motion shots of flying bodily fluids — blood, saliva, and particularly, sweat." — Mid-State Cinema, Rated PG Spies Like Us — Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd are paired as a State Department spokesman and a language genius sent to act as decoys for two legitimate spies being sent to a secret rocket installation in the eastern Soviet Union. It's a "heavily calculated" movie, says Associated Press critic Bob Thomas, that makes light of nuclear holocaust. "What ultimately defeats 'Spies Like Us' is the leaden direction by John Landis, the reliance on special effects and the curiously flat interrelationship between Chase and Aykroyd." — Fox, Rated PG Young Sherlock Holmes — Nicholas Rowe stars as Sherlock Holmes as a boy in this movie that depicts the beginning of the friendship between the famous detective and John Watson. It also reveals how Holmes picked up pipe smoking, his deerstalker cap and why he chose a life of cocaine, the violin and celibacy. Vincent Canby of The New York Times says the movie "possesses an uncharacteristic, almost leisurely narrative pace and a spectacularly handsome period production that serve the memory of the Conan Doyle originals." Canby calls it "one of the few really stylish and entertaining American movies of 1985." — Vogue, Rated PG —Compiled by Lori Brack TV movies, specials 7 p.m. - A Little Sex, WGN, Salina Cable Channel 11.

NBC to leave Radio City NEW YORK (AP) - After more than 50 years, NBC will leave Rockefeller Center, the complex that became Radio City because of the network's presence and from which Orson Welles announced "The Shadow" and Fred Allen told listeners, "Hollywood is a great place if you're an orange."
