Classic rock is coming to a head at Spirit Mountain Casino, and we can’t wait to get a piece of the action! Rock the Mountain is coming to the Main Event Center on Friday, June 16th, where we’ll get to watch the region’s best Journey and Guns ‘N Roses tribute bands recreate your favorite hits on the stage.
First order of business: Buy your tickets. Next, load up a playlist with a few of our favorite hits from these iconic rockers:
It only took keyboardist Jonathan Cain thirty minutes to write “Faithfully” on a napkin during a bus ride, but it quickly turned into one of the band’s biggest hits. It is also one of Journey’s only songs to not include a chorus.
Journey: “Don't Stop Believin’"
This 1981 anthem is one of the best-selling songs in history, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who isn’t familiar with its opening riffs. “Don’t Stop Believin’” has been immortalized by radio stations and the likes of Glee and The Sopranos.
Journey: “Any Way You Want It”
Journey’s classic concert-closer enjoyed instantaneous success with its 1980 release. This fan favorite has been featured on all four of Journey’s live albums and continues to be a mainstay in soundtracks, commercials, and covers.
Guns 'N Roses: “Welcome to the Jungle”
Honored by VH1 as the greatest rock song of all time, Axl Rose was inspired to write “Welcome to the Jungle” after a visit to Seattle. With chart-topping success across seven countries, it is one of the more recognizable songs out there.
Guns 'N Roses: “Sweet Child o' Mine”
“Paradise City” was the second single off Appetite for Destruction, and scored the #5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It is traditionally Guns ‘n Roses’ closing song in concert, and for good reason: It’s one of the first tracks that made the band famous.
Whether you’re a diehard Axl Rose fan, a loyal Steve Perry supporter, or love a little bit of both, there’s something for everyone at Rock the Mountain. Join us at Spirit Mountain Casino for a night of classic rock, great energy, and awesome performances!
