Summer is here and the bombastic celebration of arena rock is out on the road celebrating their 13th year of Arena Rock Madness across the United States. Hairball is spreading their wings and bringing their bombastic tribute to Arena Rock to parts of the country that they have yet to visit, but are sure to conquer.

For the past thirteen years, Hairball has been the definitive rock and roll band of the Midwest while bringing the ultimate rock and roll experience to millions of fans, and their time to unleash themselves on the rest of the country has come.

They bring the best of the best from the hard rock icons of the 80’s and late 70s. From Van Halen to Twisted Sister to Quiet Riot to Mötley Crüe Bon Jovi to KISS and even to the purple one himself, Prince, fans get the rock and roll arena show that they deserve, all the way down to the gigantic pyro show.
