Detroit's The Romantics set to play the 2010 NAIAS Charity Preview on Jan. 15 at Cobo Center.

 

DETROIT -- The home-grown masters of infectious upbeat, three-chord rock are coming back to Detroit for an exclusive show at the 2010 Charity Preview at Cobo Center, Friday, January 15, 2010.

The annual Charity Preview gala event is once again scheduled for the Friday prior to public days, January 15 from 6-9 p.m. The annual event benefits 12 local children's charities and has raised more then $79 million since its inception in 1976, with the money raised by ticket sales going to provide medical treatment, clothing and support services for local kids. Tickets for Charity Preview are currently available and can be purchased by calling 888-838-7500, or by visiting www.charitypreview.com. Tickets are $250 each.

"Entertainment for Charity Preview is great because it provides value for a ticket that does so much good for so many in our tri-county area. But to have the Romantics here to play for the home crowd is beyond our expectations," said Doug Fox, chairman, 2010 NAIAS. "These guys earned their stripes playing for America's toughest audiences in the Midwest and specifically Detroit. They understand how to deliver a show that is sure to not only provide an uplifting party, but to draw a crowd to help those in dire need when times are the most difficult - the children of our cities."

With a driving E-A-D-A chord progression and a raucous refrain of "HEY…uh huh," of "What I Like About You," The Romantics blazed onto airwaves in 1980 and firmly established themselves in the power pop movement. Hits like "Talkin' in Your Sleep," "Rock You Up" and "One in a Million" broke to national channels to make the band a staple on the touring circuit to take the Detroit legacy of Iggy Pop melded with The Ramones energy to the masses.

"We are proud to take part in this charitable event. It's always exciting when we play Detroit, but doing it to help the community in our hometown takes this to another level for us," said Romantics guitarist/vocalist Wally Palmar. "We know this will be a great show for the Detroit crowd and I know they won't disappoint in benefiting what's important to all of us - the children of the Motor City."
