Saturday evening features a once-in-a-lifetime concert event for classic rock fans and a group that calls the St. Louis region home. This year is the 50th anniversary of the formation of classic rock mainstays Head East and the 45th anniversary of the release of its No. 1 album “Flat as a Pancake.” To mark these milestones, original band members are reuniting with the current touring band for a performance that will include the entire “Flat as a Pancake” album. This will be the only big-stage performance of the album, with the original band members, in the St. Louis area this year.
If you’re a Journey fan, you won’t want to miss the opening act on Saturday night. SFO, a tribute to Journey with a salute to Foreigner and Kansas, will hit the stage at 7 p.m. Sept. 21. The band features six top-notch musicians with decades of touring experience from Nashville, Florida and Minnesota. Following SFO’s opening set will be a brilliant fireworks display over the beautiful lake at 370 Lakeside Park and then Head East will take the stage for its performance to close out the weekend.
