Survivor at Foxwoods Resort Casino
October 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Survivor, the Eye Of The Tiger band, comes to life when Survivor takes the stage at Foxwoods Resort Casino on Friday, October 16, 2020 from 8 pm to 10 pm in the Fox Theater.
Legendary rock band Survivor is embarking on their next chapter with a new member who has seemingly given new life to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s preeminent bands. With 22-year-old Nashville resident Cameron Barton assuming lead vocalist duties, the group will take their trademark arena rock sound to their loyal and devoted fan base.
Survivor released their first album in 1980 on Scotti Brothers. Their first Top-40 on the Hot 100 came the next year with “Poor Man’s Son.” Their big break would come in 1982 when the band was asked by Sylvester Stallone to provide the theme song for Rocky III. That single, “Eye Of The Tiger,” hit # 1, staying there for seven weeks, winning a GRAMMY for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal, a People’s Choice Award, and Academy Award & Golden Globe nominations. The song came in at #18 on the “Top 100 Singles” chart in Billboard‘s 100th Anniversary issue and it’s well over the 7 million mark worldwide on iTunes, where it’s currently holding strong at #9 on their “Top Soundtrack” chart. The band also struck paydirt as a result of a Stallone movie when “Burning Heart” appeared on the soundtrack of Rocky IV in 1985, hitting No. 2 on the singles chart.
Their followup record Vital Signs was another huge success for the band, peaking at #16 on Billboard‘s “Top 200 Albums” chart thanks to the Billboard Top-20 hits “I Can’t Hold Back” (#13), “High On You” (#8) and “The Search Is Over” (#4). With a new team on board and new energy in the air, the future couldn’t be brighter for Survivor!
