Iconic British rockers are taking the stage at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Saturday, June 3.

“Enjoying a run of solid sold-out performances in 2016, The Yardbirds continue to hold true to the band’s legacy of masterful musicianship,” states a press release from Kayos Productions, Inc.

The band, led by Rock and Roll hall of famer and drummer Jim McCarty, includes guitarist Johnny A, bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer/blues harpist and percussionist Myke Scavone and lead singer/guitarist John Idan.

“Experiencing a Yardbirds concert is akin to a music history lesson. An integral part of the 1960s’ ‘British Invasion,’ these blues-rock pioneers played a significant role in laying the groundwork for rock music.

“The band crafted blues-rock/psychedelic anthems ‘For Your Love,’ ‘Over Under Sideways Down,’ ‘Train Kept A-Rollin’,’ and ‘Heart Full of Soul,’ to name a few — building an undeniable legacy that still reigns strong in 2017,” concludes the release.

Catch The Yardbirds, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, at 7:30 p.m. at the Stateline venue.

Tickets, available online through Ticketmaster, start at $42, plus tax and fees.
