Great White and Slaughter will be live at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino on Sept. 6. Experience two of the quintessential ‘80s rock acts together in one night.

Since 1982, the Great White sound has captivated audiences worldwide with crushing blues-based guitar riffs and swagger that invokes an emotional high. The Grammy-nominated band has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and has had two platinum albums and nine Top 200 Billboard albums throughout its career. In 2012, the band released its twelfth studio album, “Elation.”

Fans will also recognize “Rock Me,” “Mista Bone” and dozens of other hits.

Slaughter’s first album, “Stick It to Ya,” reached double platinum status. Still known as a hair-metal band, Slaughter, which debuted in 1988, had hits with “Up All Night,” “Spend My Life” and “Fly to the Angels.” All three hits reached the Billboard Hot 100 list.

Their single “Real Love” from their second album was certified gold. They had a comeback of sorts in 1999 with “Back to Reality,” an album that has gained popularity over time.

Great White and Slaughter will perform at 8 p.m. in The Events Center.
