Among the hair-metal bands whose commercial heyday was cut short by the early-’90s alternative-nation rise was Winger, the glossy, hard-sexing group that scored pre-Nirvana hits with songs like “Headed for a Heartbreak” and “Can’t Get Enuff.” Frontman Kip Winger, a one-time member of Alice Cooper’s band, reunited his eponymous band in the middle of the 2000s, picking up where they left off with albums like 2009’s Karma, but he’s also branched off in some unlikely directions, scoring a 30-minute piece for the San Francisco Ballet. Expect him to stick to more traditional fare when he performs solo acoustic for this show.
