RibFest announces lineup

Night Ranger is one of four acts headlining Happy Harry's RibFest. Special to The Forum

FARGO—Happy Harry's RibFest is getting tangy and twangy with its lineup, serving up some classic 1980s and '90s acts.

Rock band Collective Soul, which scored mid-'90s radio staples like "Shine" and "The World I Know," kicks things off on Wednesday, June 7.

During the mid '80s Night Ranger ruled MTV with a mix of rock anthems ("Don't Tell Me You Love Me," "You Can Still Rock in America") and power ballads ("Sister Christian," "Sentimental Street"). The quintet plays Thursday, June 8. Last week it was announced Kelly Keagy would sit out the next few weeks of the group's 35th anniversary tour following heart surgery, but was expected to be back on the road in June. The lineup also includes original singer/bassist Jack Blades and guitarist Brad Gillis.

Diamond Rio returns on Friday, June 9, with a collection of '90s country radio hits like "Meet in the Middle," "How Your Love Makes Me Feel" and "One More Day."

Little Texas closes out RibFest on Saturday, June 10, with signature hits "What Might Have Been," "My Love," and the country anthem, "God Blessed Texas."

Admission is $5 each night.
