It takes a lot of people to make a record or put on a concert tour, and all those people have stories to tell. The Hit Men, a band made up of touring and studio musicians, will share their stories and play classic rock hits in a concert at Leach Theatre this October.
The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at Leach Theatre in Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. This performance is sponsored by Alpha Media, Bob and Susan Hooper and Metz Music.
The members of The Hit Men have worked with a wide variety of artists, either as touring musicians or in the recording studio. Members of the group have performed alongside members of Foreigner, Journey, The Who, and Cream, as well as with artists including Elton John and Sting. In this concert, The Hit Men share their behind-the-scenes stories and perform classic hits, including “Layla,” “Don’t Stop Believin,’” and “I Want to Know What Love Is.”
In 2019, members of The Hit Men were recognized by the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville with the organization’s first Road Warriors Award to honor “their years of dedication to the music and the countless miles they have traveled in delivering so many hits throughout the world.”
Tickets are $38 for adults, $33 for youth under age 18 and $15 for Missouri S&T students with a valid S&T ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Leach Theatre Box Office, located inside the main entrance of Castleman Hall, facing 10th Street. The box office is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
