Tom Petty to Rock 5-Day Bike Fest

May 25, 2006

Check out Tom Petty Tickets here.

NEW YORK (AP) Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are slated to join Keith Urban, the Black Crowes, Big & Rich and Nickelback at Rock ‘n the Rally, a five-day music festival to be held this August in South Dakota during the celebrated Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

“We’re building a world-class music festival right into the worlds largest bike rally,” the festival’s producer, Mark Russo of Dork Fish Ink, said in a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday. “Rock ‘n the Rally has been two years in the making and we’ve built it from the ground up.”

The festival, to be held from Aug. 6-10, will take place in a new 34-acre amphitheater on Glencoe Camp Resort in Sturgis, where hundreds of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from around the nation converge for the motorcycle rally, now in its 68th year.
“Sturgis Bike Week is a celebration of independence and freedom, the same concepts that define Rock ‘n Roll,” said Glencoe owner Gary Lippold, who along with Dork Fish Ink is presenting the festival.

Other performers for the music festival include Joe Cocker, Shooter Jennings, Sammy Hagar, Cheap Trick and .38 Special. Organizers plan to make Rock ‘n the Rally an annual event.

James Gang Hitting The Road This Summer

April 4, 2006

Check out James Gang Tickets here.

Classic rock outfit the James Gang will tour for the first time in 35 years this summer. Original members Joe Walsh, Jimmy Fox and Dale Peters are on board for the trek, which will kick off Aug. 9 at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Best known for the riff-heavy single “Funk #49,” the James Gang formed in Cleveland in 1966 and released three albums before Walsh departed in 1971, ultimately joining the Eagles. His slot was filled by various guitarists until the James Gang’s 1976 split.

In recent years, the band has played a few one-off shows, including a 1996 election rally for U.S. president Bill Clinton.

James Gang Tour Dates:

James Gang Tickets Aug. 22: Westbury NY (Westbury Music Fair)
James Gang Tickets Aug. 24: Atlanta GA (Chastain Park)

Get Your Motor Runnin (Sturgis Motorcycle Rally)

March 30, 2006

Check out   Tom Petty tickets here.

The massive Stugis Bike Week is a 65 year American tradition for motorcycle fans but this year you can get yer motor runnin’ and rock out, too.

A new concert series, Rock’n The Rally, will present Aerosmith, Sammy Hagar, Big & Rich, Keith Urban, Steve Miller, Cheap Trick, Steppenwolf, Fabulous Thunderbirds, REO Speedwagon, .38 Special, Foghat, Georgia Satellites, Greg Rollie, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Shooter Jennings and others in Sturgis, S.D., August 6-10.

The concerts will take place in a 34-acre natural grass amphitheatre that will seat tens of thousands.

Construction on the Rock’n The Rally site began last September at the Glencoe Camp Resort. Glencoe owner Gary Lippold, along with festival producers Dork Fish Inc., have planned the Rock’n The Rally as an annual event.

“We took the reverse view of the ‘build it and they will come’ theory,” Dork Fish’s Mark Russo said. “We figured, 600,000 people attend Sturgis Bike Week each year, let’s build it where they already are.”

This will be the first year that a stand-alone festival coincides with motorcycle extravaganza, which runs from August 7th through the 13th.

“We are providing a safe, modern, and expansive venue with a full line-up each day of world-class acts that appeal to the Bike Rally’s audience,” property owner Gary Lippold said.

“For 66 years, Sturgis Bike Week has been a celebration of independence and freedom, the same concepts that define Rock ‘n Roll. We’re adding a new music festival to Bike Week in a classy way… to give our guests a great concert experience.”
