Like many of their contemporaries and occasional touring mates Journey and Styx, Loverboy is a nostalgia act now and most of their set was at least 26 years old. But these guys have not resorted to bionic parts to keep the band going. Even Sinnaeve, the relative newcomer, was in Streetheart, Dean and Frenette's pre-Loverboy band.

Give Loverboy credit: they might not be in the arenas anymore, but all the way to the final four hits — “Turn Me Loose,” “Working For the Weekend,” “Lovin' Every Minute of It” and “Jump” (theirs, not Van Halen's), they put in the effort like it was a mid-80s headlining night at the Myriad. For the state fair crowd, that counted for a lot. When Reno wrung out about a cup of sweat from his bandanna at the end, it was earned.
