Gold Dust will play Hardtails in Sisters on August 10, in the tribute band's last summer of shows.

The rock music of the 1970s and '80s is timeless - and always draws a crowd to Hardtails Bar & Grill's summer concert series featuring tribute bands that keep the music of that storied era alive.

Owner Steve Macey has announced the line-up for this year's series, which features the swan song of one of the most popular acts.

"Lots of awesome bands, some repeats, but people seem to love them," Macey told The Nugget. "We have kept our prices the same - unlike most everything else that inflation has hit!"

All shows will be held in the outdoor courtyard at Hardtails. The action kicks off on Saturday, July 13, with Lucky Town, a tribute to the music of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

The music of The Cars will be featured by Candy-O on Saturday, July 20, and Valhalla will bring down the hammer of the gods with its Led Zeppelin tribute on Saturday, August 3.

The Gold Dust show on August 10 is one of a few dates the Fleetwood Mac tribute band will play in its final summer. Leader Windy Wahlke posted on Facebook:

"It is time to announce that Gold Dust will be officially retiring at the end of 2024! We have had an amazing run and thoroughly enjoyed our decade+ musical journey, celebrating the amazing music of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks! I have met the most talented and passionate people that have become family, and am honored to have been a part of such a great community including fans, musicians, friends, family, business owners, entertainment bookers, festival, events and fair members/bookers, and to have been invited to perform on some of the best stages in the PNW."

According to Macey, Gold Dust has been among the favorites of audiences over past summers, selling out four of their last five appearances. This summer's show is likely to sell out early.

Another perennial favorite, Petty Fever, honoring the legendary Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, will return to the stage on August 17, and the season will again close out with the three-hour music and light-show extravaganza of the Pink Floyd tribute, In the Pink.
