New wave 80s band Missing Persons will take the stage in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge tomorrow, Feb. 9. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. with Canyon Laker Makayla Phillips opening the show.

According to Concert Promoter Doug Schultz, there are only a few tickets left. General Admission tickets cost $29. VIP tickets cost $54. Tickets are available at the POA office and through the POA’s website at canyonlakepoa.com. If the concert doesn’t sell out before Saturday, tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Missing Persons rose to stardom in the early 80s and became a must-see band among the Los Angeles live music crowd. The band is known for their singles “Mental Hopscotch,” “Surrender Your Heart,” “Words” and “Walking in L.A,” to name a few.

Missing Persons is one of the great success stories of the 80s. Many  bands of that era turned out to be one-hit wonders, but Missing Persons proved to be anything but that.

On Oct. 2, the band celebrated the 36th anniversary of the release of their first full-length album, “Spring Session M.” The album peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Opener Makayla Phillips appeared on Season 13 of America’s Got Talent and received the Golden Buzzer from Heidi Klum, just seconds after hitting the first few notes.

Makayla made a special appearance during the Berlin concert on Sept. 15 at the lodge where she performed two songs and received a standing ovation.

The lodge will be offering a special menu for tomorrow’s concert. Dinner starts at 5 p.m. Happy Hour specials are not offered on concert days.
