With his dynamic dancing and smooth vocals, Morris Day played a crucial role in the Twin City dance club sound of the 1980s. A founding member of Prince’s band the Time, Day performed and recorded with the group until launching his solo career. During his solo career, Day released the album “Daydreaming”, which included the chart-topping hit “Fishnets.” He later returned to the group in the early 1990s.

Mentored by James Brown, Bootsy Collins is a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee who has been making legendary music for more than 40 years. Known for being the “original funk ‘n’ roll wild child” and his signature knee-high platform boots, Collins’ most recent album is the 2011 “Tha Funk Capital of the World.”

Doug E. Fresh is known as the “first human beatbox” and has been wowing audiences with his drum machine imitations for more than 30 years. His classics include “The Show/La Di Da Di” and “Play This Only at Night.”

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on-sale on Friday, March 18 at 10 a.m. and are available from $49 plus taxes and fees. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena Box Office at 702.284.7777 or by visiting
