With “Open Arms,” The Pavilion invites you to a night complete with classic rock ‘n’ roll and exciting entertainment. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Board of Directors and The Pavilion Partners, the official volunteer organization of The Pavilion, throw back to the days of classic rock with a pre-concert fund-raiser prior to the Journey, Heart and Cheap Trick concert July 26. Social Hour is at 5 p.m. in The Pavilion’s Event Tent followed by the dinner and the auction from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

At this rock ‘n’ roll fund-raiser, tickets are $225 and include covered reserved seating for the concert, dinner, complimentary beer and margaritas and VIP club passes. You can have it “Anyway You Want It” as exclusive items are auctioned off, including backstage Meet & Greets with the bands, sports and concert memorabilia, travel and theater packages and other themed items. Proceeds from the fund-raiser benefit the educational outreach programs of The Pavilion, a nonprofit organization. These educational programs include Fine Arts Education Day, Musical Scores, Children’s Festival and Music in Motion.

Journey, known for hits such as “Don’t Stop Believing,” “Open Arms” and “Send Her My Love,” has sold more than 75 million albums, received two Grammy nominations and gained Billboard 200 status. This classic rock ‘n’ roll group’s seventh album produced three hit singles and sold more than nine million copies. They have achieved Gold and Platinum awards for their most popular albums: “Trial by Fire,” “Escape” and “When You Love a Woman.”

Touring with Journey is Heart, another successful rock group from the mid-70’s. Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy, first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the '70s with hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "Straight On" and "Even It Up." Along the way, Heart sold more than 30 million records, had 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide, and had a profound influence on rock music. In May 2007, VH1 named Heart as a recipient of their 2007 Rock Honors awards at a stunning performance event.

Cheap Trick joins the tour as well and brings back their love for British guitar pop mixed with rock. With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 Gold and Platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. Some of their timeless classics include “I Want You To Want Me,” “Surrender” and “The Flame.”
