Based on the popular movie and featuring such chart-topping 80s hits as “Holding Out for a Hero,” “Almost Paradise,” “Let’s Hear it for the Boy,” and the title song, “Footloose,” tells the tale of a teenaged boy who moves from the big city to a conservative rural town where rock music and dancing are banned, and his efforts to take on authority to lift the ban.
