"HardDrive" Tour Returns For 2010
Tue, 17 Aug 2010 10:46:18
United Stations nationally syndicated radio shows HardDrive and HardDrive XL have announced the second annual "HARDDRIVE LIVE TOUR 2010" branded and produced in conjunction with its' weekend and nightly radio programs. The 2010 lineup for the fall concert tour features headliners Sevendust, 10 Years, with special guests Since October, Aranda and Anew Revolution. The excursion will begin in Augusta, GA on October 4 and is currently scheduled to arrive in 28 cities across North America by November. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
Regarding their participation in the HardDrive Live Tour 2010, the members of Sevendust issued the following statement, "We couldn't be more excited to be on the HardDrive Live tour this Fall. Roxy (Myzal, HardDrive producer) has been there since the beginning and HardDrive have been huge supporters of the band over the years. It will also be great to be on tour with our friends in 10 Years and, of course, as always - playing for our Sevendust family."
HardDrive host, Lou Brutus added, "We know our radio shows touch people daily, but with a live concert tour we can REALLY reach out and touch both our affiliates and our listeners. It's always been about the music for us, and there's nothing that tops a live concert experience for fans, especially hardcore fans like me and the rest of the HardDrive staff."
HardDrive with Lou Brutus debuted on July 5, 1996. With 125 radio stations broadcasting the show, HardDrive is America's longest running new rock show supporting the careers of hundreds of groups from Korn to Five Finger Death Punch. Multi-platinum metal band Slipknot received some of their first national airplay on the two-hour week-end syndicated show. United Stations acquired the series in 2001, and in 2007 originator / producer Roxy Myzal developed the Monday through Friday spin-off HardDrive XL, also featuring Lou Brutus.
Lou and Roxy certainly know to rock like nobody's business and I congratulate them on the second year for this tour.
