      The story of Loverboy is akin to a Hollywood movie. Overcoming rejection to eventually become one of Canada's most successful rock bands of all time and selling millions of albums in the process is a feel-good story for the ages.

      For more than 40 years, Loverboy has been "Working for the Weekend" (and on the weekend), delighting audiences around the world since forming in 1979, when vocalist Mike Reno was introduced to guitar hot shot Paul Dean – both veterans of several bands on the Canadian scene – at Calgary's Refinery Night Club. Along with Reno and Dean, Loverboy still includes original members Doug Johnson on keyboards and Matt Frenette on drums, with Ken "Spider" Sinnaeve replacing the late Scott Smith on bass.

      With their trademark red leather pants, bandannas, big rock sound and high-energy live shows, Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums, earning several multi-platinum awards. Their string of hits includes, in addition to the anthem "Working for the Weekend," such arena rock staples as "The Kid Is Hot Tonite," "Take Me to the Top," "Turn Me Loose," "Jump" and many more. In 2009, the group was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

      Live in '82 showcases one of their most incredible live performances. Lovingly restored from Paul Dean's personal archive of 16mm film, the joyous energy of a band who helped define the golden era of '80s music is captured like lightning in a bottle. Colorful clothing, outrageous hairstyles (and headbands!), terrific movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakfast Club, and great music that has stood the test of time.

      Paul Dean summed it up best: "The 1980s was an amazing time, but it's still amazing now," he grins. "The fact that Loverboy are still together and playing these same songs almost every night — Who'd have thought?"
