Great White and Slaughter invaded MGM's Center Stage on Saturday night for an eening of '80s hard rock.

Slaughter hit the stage first and opened the show with "Mad About You."  The band basically played from their multiplatinum album, Stick It To Ya with a couple of cover tunes thrown in. 

Mark Slaughter sounded great and the band was very tight.  

Early in the set, guitarist Jeff "Blando" Bland noted that Cleveland was home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and asked if anyone liked Led Zeppelin.  Of course the crowd cheered enthusiastically and the band tore into "Immigrant Song."

Mark Slaughter dedicated "Fly to the Angels" to Steve Riley of LA Guns who recently passed away. 

Everyone was up on their feet and rocked out to the song that put Slaughter on the map, "Up All Night."  The band then closed the show with The Who's anthem, "Won't Get Fooled Again."

Great White came out rocking with "Desert Moon," which showed off their new lead singer, Brett Carlisle's voice.

The much younger Carlisle fit in nicely with the band and brought some new energy to the show.

The band broke out some deep cuts like "Stick It" and "Rollin' Stoned" as well as the hits like "The Angel Song and "Save Your Love."

Original guitarist Mark Kendall showed off his blues riffs on "House of Broken Love."

The band saved their biggest hits for last, ending the show with "Rock Me" and "Once Bitten Twice Shy."

Overall, it was another great night of '80s hard rock at MGM
