The H. Ric Luhrs Performance Arts Center continued its concert series with Christopher Cross and the Little River Band on Saturday night. These two artists played to a semi-packed audience that remained spellbound for both performances.
After an acknowledgement to all military personnel providing service for this country, the band started with timeless classics “Hang On” followed by “The Night Owls” that turned the concert into a celebration.
By the end of their set, Little River Band had taken the audience on a ride through the ’70s and ’80s musically and ended with the song, “Lonesome Loser,” that left the crowd cheering for more.
It was obvious that the LRB had the crowd hungry for more, but Cross had something up his sleeve during his performance.
Cross then played an acoustic version of the tune “Lemon’s Theme,” while having a video clip from the television show masterfully setting the tone for a backdrop.
The night ended with Cross playing “Ride Like the Wind,” another Grammy hit. Both performances had their special moments and at night’s end, it was clear why these two artists are still adored by audiences around the world.
