Rock stars who found fame in the 1980s are set to take center stage at Soldotna Creek Park on Friday night, in a concert event hosted by Hooked Entertainment, the local Harley Davidson, Kenai’s Greatest Hits and the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce.
Tiffany, with members of L.A. Guns, will perform live music during the Progress Days festivities this weekend. Also headlining will be Zen Trembles, Nothing But Karma and Guitar Foodie.
Shanon Davis, the executive director of the Soldotna Chamber, is one of the people helping organize Friday’s concert.
“We were happy to invite them to be a part of the festival,” she said.
The rock artist Tiffany gained name recognition in the late 1980s with her cover of Tommy James and the Shondells’ song “I Think We’re Alone Now.”
Davis said back in the day, Tiffany used to tour with another singer.
“They became big stars by playing in malls, actually,” Davis said.
The Soldotna Chamber was able to sign on singers after a promoter from Anchorage came to a concert at the park in 2017 and decided he wanted to form a partnership with Davis and her team. Since then, they’ve been able to book multiple musicians.
“I will say that’s one thing I’m very very proud of,” Davis said.
Tickets for Friday’s concert in the park are available on presale for $30 at the Hooked Entertainment website. Passes at the gate the day of the show are $40, and VIP tickets are $50.
The gates open on Friday at 4 p.m., and Progress Days food and drink vendors will be available to concertgoers in the park.
