The group's second album, "The Wild Life," featured "Real Love" and was certified gold.

Vixen, an all-female St. Paul, Minn.-based group, has sold more than 1 million albums and made six No. 1 music videos on MTV. Their first hit, "Edge of a Broken Heart," was co-written by singer Richard Marx.

Steelheart started off as a metal band in the early '90s, with lead singer Miljenko Matijevic also providing vocals for Mark Wahlberg's character in the film "Rock Star." Now the band has a more modern sound. Steelheart is probably best known for the single, "I'll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes)."

Tickets start at $25 and go on sale on Friday, Aug. 14.
