HAIRBALL will ROCK the Corn Palace on Saturday, April 13th at 8pm. Tickets are on sale now at the Corn Palace Box Office. Get your tickets now for $20.
A Tribute to 80’s Rock Legends
Hairball is the world's ultimate "80's Rock" impersonation act, recreating the good-time party atmosphere of the decadent decade with unmatched authenticity.
Hairball's unique dual frontman assault, featuring veteran vocalists Bobby Jensen and Kris Voxx, sets them apart from all other "80's" tributes. They cop the personas of the era's legendary frontmen while rapidly changing elaborate costumes, then complete their transformations with dead-on visual and vocal performances. They alternate their stage time, bringing new characters to the stage every 5 to 10 minutes! For instance, while Bob has fans questioning whether or not he really is Paul Stanley from KISS, Kris is backstage preparing for his insanely accurate Twisted Sister spot. This relentless, rapid-fire style is constant, enabling Hairball to represent more than 20 of the "80's" biggest and most colorful rock 'n roll superheroes! You're not going to find Guns 'n Roses, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Ozzy, AC/DC, Journey, Poison and more on the same bill anywhere else!
The core of Hairball consists of guitarist Happy, bassist Shawn "Sports" Pop and drummer Colt Python, all of whom are legitimate rockstars in their own right. Their musicianship and ability to perform on an international level makes kids want to learn how to play, while the guys that know how to play...want to quit. Along with their enormous backline of amplifiers and mammoth drums, these guys outgun everybody in every department.
DO NOT miss Hairball, the most exciting re-creation of the greatest era in rock history!

Prolific singer-songwriter Clint Black has long been heralded as one of Country music’s brightest stars. His many talents have taken him even further, as Black has transcended genres to become one of the most successful artists in all the music industry. To date, Black has written, recorded and released more than 100 songs, a benchmark in any artist’s career. An astounding one-third of these songs eligible for major single release also achieved hit song status at Country radio, while more than 20 million of his albums have been sold worldwide. While it’s well-known that Black is an accomplished singer and guitarist, people may be surprised to learn that he is also proficient on drums and harmonica.
Black’s continued success can be attributed in part to his deep sense of Country music history, and his humble gratitude in being an important part of it. The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the Triple Platinum Killin’ Time, marked a shift in the industry, with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. CMT lists this album as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Country Music.
