Tue, 04 May 2010 09:16:25
Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold, along with Stone Sour and Halestorm, will be featured on the main stage of the forthcoming, first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival. The potent rock lineup for the touring music and lifestyle jaunt also features performances from Jägermeister Second Stage headliners Hellyeah, as well as Airbourne, Hail The Villain, New Medicine and the Jägermeister Battle of The Bands Winner in each city. So there is something for everyone on this 36-date tour, which launches August 17 in Minneapolis, MN and will visit arenas and amphitheatres across North America before wrapping October 4 in Madison, WI.
The national on sale for the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is Saturday, June 12 and tickets will be available via www.RockstarUproar.com and www.LiveNation.com. A special pre-sale will commence Tuesday, June 8. Go to www.RockstarUproar.com for details. Tickets for the September 19 Tempe Beach Park Amphitheatre show go on sale Saturday, May 15. Information is available at www.luckymanonline.com. So mark your calendars and get ready to rock.
The tour is effectively replacing The Taste of Chaos festival, which has run its course in America despite still being wildly popular overseas. While the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival caters to the metal world, with Korn and Rob Zombie headlining this year's trek, UPROAR is geared more towards a rock radio audience.
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will feature a full afternoon and night of activities, including a concourse midway filled with vendors and activities and a daily wrestling tournament featuring the Detroit-based Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance. The Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance UPROAR lineup will feature eight of the finest, fastest rising wrestlers in the world who will put their skills to the ultimate test during the BCWA UPROAR Invitational. The 36-event tournament will encompass 245 matches over seven weeks throughout North America. The athlete that perseveres over injuries and adversity will be named King of the Tournament. So if you like white trash wrestling and rock, this is an event you do not want to miss.
