The 1980s represented innovation in cross genre music. The music by the Violent Femmes was considered a new combination of Americana music and indie rock. One of the band’s most popular tunes is “Blister in the Sun.”

In addition to the roster of renowned 1980s performers at the LA Live venue, MC Hammer is expected to make a special appearance.

Ticket prices range from $20 to $505 and are available here at the Microsoft Theater website.
