Loverboy Go to artist

Loverboy releases the live-version of ‘Working for the Weekend’ from their upcoming album ‘Live in ’82 through earMUSIC. 

The story of Loverboy is akin to a Hollywood movie. Overcoming rejection to eventually become one of Canada’s most successful rock bands of all time and selling millions of albums in the process, is a feel-good story for the ages.

For more than 40 years, Loverboy have been ‘Working For The Weekend’ (and on the weekend), delighting audiences around the world since forming in 1979.

The year 1982 represented a triumphant 12 months for the rock band with extremely successful arena shows in the course of their second studio album, the multi-platinum awarded US Top 10 record ‘Get Lucky’ (featuring various hit singles  such as ‘Working For The Weekend’, ‘When It’s Over’, ‘Lucky Ones’ and ‘Take Me To The Top’), and winning no less than six Canadian JUNO Awards, a record that still stands today.

Today’s release of their 1982 live performance ‘Working For The Weekend’ is another exciting foretaste of the incredible live show ‘Live In ‘82′, becoming available for the very first time in high definition on June 7th, 2024.

It’s a wonderful period piece and Loverboy are just as we remember them – full of smiles, energy and confidence, outrageous hairstyles, colorful clothing, and great music.

As of today, ‘Working For The Weekend’ is available for download and streaming. The single release is being accompanied by the launch of the music video on the earMUSIC YouTube channel.

‘The 1980s was an amazing time, but it’s still amazing now’, says Paul Dean. ‘The fact that Loverboy are still together and playing these same songs almost every night – Who’d have thought?’
