Warrant coming to the Island in November


HARRIS — Get ready to sing at the top of your lungs and play air-guitar all night long as the Island Resort & Casino welcomes the ’90s rock sensation Warrant for two shows Nov. 8-9 in the Island Showroom.

At its core, Warrant is an American rock band through and through. Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, Calif.-based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping success.

The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.” This album produced radio and MTV chart toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven,” which enjoyed Gold sales and the album went Platinum in Canada as well, eventually selling over 3 million copies.

Warrant’s sophomore album “Cherry Pie” was released in September 1990. This album, which spawned the MTV and radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “I Saw Red,” all reached the Top 10 in the United States and went on to sell 3 million copies, reaching Platinum sales in Canada and Australia.

Warrant’s signature style of rock music is very catchy and yet very melodic and remains the band’s signature sound today. In September 2008, Robert Mason replaced the late Jani Lane as lead vocalist, joining the other four original members, Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet, Joey Allen and Erik Turner.

Their current album “Louder Harder Faster,” released on Frontiers Records, has been highly regarded in reviews and embraced by fans.

Warrant has been headlining festivals, casinos and fairs all over the country in support of “Louder Harder Faster” and the 30-year anniversary of their debut album, “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.”

The band is fired up and tighter than ever musically. These rockers can’t wait to play their hits for fans in the Island Showroom in November.

Tickets are $40 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Eastern time Friday.

They are available for purchase by phone with credit card 1-877-ISL-SHOW or online at www.islandresortandcasino.com.
