Daily Herald report

Suburban music fans got "Footloose" and traveled to the "Danger Zone" Tuesday night as 80s pop-rock stalwart Kenny Loggins closed out Elk Grove Village's Mid-Summer Classics Concert Series with those and other top 40 hits.

Loggins, who scored chart-toppers with songs off the "Caddyshack," "Footloose," and "Top Gun" soundtracks, performed to a big crowd on the Village Green at the Charles J. Zettek Municipal Complex.

His show closed out a concert series that also saw America, Survivor, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, and John Michael Montgomery take to the Village Green stage this month.

The village was able to land the well-known performers for this year's series with extra funding available after the cancellation of the annual Tour of Elk Grove cycling races. In all, $310,000 was spent to attract performers this year, compared to $130,000 in 2013.
