Behind the Scenes with Titans of ’80s Rock and Frank Papillo

Lisa Condit spoke with Frank Papillo, who is bringing Titans of 80s Rock to The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts on Saturday, February 29 at 7:30pm. Read on for highlights from the interview, then tune in to WCRN 830AM Saturdays at 1 PM for more behind-the-scenes interviews!

Lisa: Titans of ’80s Rock brings us right back to the day. The lineup is Rock of Ages: Def Leppard Tribute, Bon Jersey: Bon Jovi Tribute, and Shot of Poison: A Tribute to Poison as They Are Right Now. Sounds amazing.

Frank: It is, it’s a great lineup and show and people love it.

Lisa: So tell us what we can expect.

Frank: People come out and enjoy themselves listening to, like you said, the ’80s arena rock, which are coming back. A lot of the bands are touring again. We’re bringing back the sound on the album to a live show and trying to emulate what they did back in the day, today.

Lisa: That’s totally fun. I can’t believe that the run time is approximately three and a half hours. That is a huge value, and it’s so reasonably priced. And you do have some VIP tickets available for $59. Tell us about that VIP package.

Frank: We put the VIP package together because I think everybody likes to be as close as they can be to where the action is. So we set up the front rows at The Hanover Theatre for people to come by so prior to the show, they will get to meet all three bands. They will get a package that will include some kind of giveaway, which will include a signed 8×10 picture of each band that they can take with them and enjoy the show.
