Geoff Gordon is President of Live Nation Philadelphia.  He echoed Wimmer’s sentiments in his thoughts on the festival’s return.  “Last year’s Monster Energy Rock Allegiance was a huge success on so many levels,” he said.  “We were proud to bring this venue their first ever concert; a record-setting, sold out smash hit. The audience had such a great time enjoying a unique experience of music and lifestyle — we knew in 2016 we could turn it up a notch!”

The Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion Festival is one of North Carolina’s biggest annual music festivals if not the biggest. And this year, the festival will celebrate an important anniversary when it returns to the Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 2nd and 3rd.

This year, the Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary with one of its biggest lineups to date. The fifth annual festival will feature no fewer than thirty-six acts over two days. The acts tapped to perform this year include some of the biggest names in rock’s past, present, and future. Those names include the likes of: Slayer, Slipknot, Queensryche, Hatebreed, Cheap Trick, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Rise Against, Jackyl, In Flames, Periphery, and many other major names. The current lineup for this year’s festival is listed below.

Saturday, May 2

Korn, Marilyn Manson, Rise Against, Sammy Hagar & The Circle, Chevelle, Cheap Trick, Papa Roach, Bush, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, Jackyl, Of Mice & Men, Live, Motionless In White, Periphery, Beartooth, Young Guns, Marmozets, Islander and more.

 

Sunday, May 3

Slipknot front man Corey Taylor discussed the band’s addition to the bill and playing alongside other great names in rock in a recent interview saying, “We are very excited to be headlining Rebellion this year! We’re honored to be playing in the company of Cheap Trick, one of my all-time favorites, as well as playing with such good friends like Korn, Halestorm and Slayer!” Korn front man Jonathan Davis explained that the Carolina Rebellion festival plays a very important part in that band’s history as it served as the point of reunion for the band with guitarist Brian “Head” Welch in 2012. “Three years ago, we reunited with our brother Head on stage at Carolina Rebellion. Since then, we made a new album and toured the world together,” he said. He went on to note that the reunion means even more as the band plans on playing its debut album in its entirety at this year’s festival. And now we’re back to perform our first album in its entirety.  Rebellion is going to be a really special show for us,” he said.

Carolina Rebellion Festival Co-Executive Producer Gary Spivack of RockHouse discussed the importance of this year’s installment of what is the biggest of the Mid-Atlantic region’s rock festivals and of making it a special, memorable anniversary for audiences. “Rebellion is truly the Carolinas ’ biggest music party of the year,” he said. “For the 5th annual Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, we wanted to acknowledge not only the best in current rock with the likes of Slipknot, Godsmack, Breaking Benjamin and more, but also celebrate some great iconic rock bands like Sammy Hagar & The Circle, Cheap Trick, Slayer and others to give the Rebels the widest range of Rock N’ Roll possible.”

Carnival Of Madness Band Line-Up Announced

Courtesy:  abc-pr

Courtesy: abc-pr

With the unofficial start of Summer come and gone, that means that lots of people will be hitting the roads very soon for their annual Summer vacations.  It also means that the annual rush of Summer music festivals will also be hitting the road.  One of those festivals is the annual Carnival of Madness tour.  The festival tour begins Sunday, August 11th.  A full list of tour dates will be made available on the official Carnival of Madness website http://carnivalofmadness.com next Monday, June 3rd.  Tickets will go on sale next Friday, June 7th.

The tour—sponsored by Monster Energy—will feature Shinedown, Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment, and We As Human on the bill.  This year’s tour is not the first time on the festival’s lineup for Shinedown.  The band headlined the festival tour in its inaugural run in 2010.  When it hits the road, the band will be touring in support of its new EP, The Live Room. The EP features five songs from the band’s most recent full length LP, Amaryllis.  Also included in the new EP are performances of Carole King’s classic hit, ‘I Feel The Earth Move’ and audio and video performances of the band’s latest single, ‘I’ll Follow You’, as well as its megahit, ‘Bully.’ 

 Skillet will be touring on the heels of its most recent full length studio release, Awake.  The album was one of only three rock albums that went platinum in 2012.  The only other rock albums to reach Platinum status in 2012 were El Camino from The Black Keys and Babel from Mumford & Sons.  That was just one of the many honors for Awake.  The album debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “top 200 Albums Chart” and #1 on its “Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums” chart.  Also, it reached #1 on iTunes’ “Top Album” chart.  It garnered the band three Billboard Music Awards and four hit singles, including the Gold-Certified #1 single, ‘Awake & Alive’, the Gold-Certified ‘Hero’, ‘It’s Not Me It’s You’ and the Platinum-Certified ‘Monster.’  The companion video to ‘Monster’ earned more than 52 million views on YouTube.  NBC used ‘Hero’ for broadcasts of its weekly NFL Sunday Night Football.  It also served as the theme song for WWE’s 2012 Royal Rumble broadcast.  On June 25th, the band will release the follow-up to Awake  with its new full length album, Rise.  The band already has released two songs from the album, ‘Sick of It’ and ‘American Noise.’  Both songs have already hit #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart.

All of the accolades received by Skillet have potentially helped another band on the bill for this year’s tour.  That band is We As Human.  The band was signed to Atlantic Records in 2011 via Hear It Loud, a partnership formed partially by Skillet’s John Cooper along with manager Zach Kelm and Todd Rubenstein after Cooper had discovered the band.  The band’s self-titled debut album will be available June 25th

In This Moment joins this year’s tour on the heels of the release of its latest album, Blood, which was released in August 2012.  Blood debuted at #15 on the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” Chart and has sold over 150,000 copies since its release.  The album spawned two hits, ‘Adrenalize’ and its title track.  The band’s 2007 debut record, Beautiful Tragedy earned the band a spot on both the 2007 and 2008 Ozzfest.  And 2008’s The Dream landed the band a slot on the 2009 Warped Tour.  2010’s A Star-Crossed Wasteland was the band’s highest-charting album until the release of Blood

Papa Roach’s most recently released single, ‘Where Did The Angels Go’ reached #1 on the Active Rock Radio Chart from BDS/Billboard.  The single comes from the band’s most recent full length release, The Connection, released via Eleven Seven Music.  The album was released in October 2012 and debuted as iTunes’ #2 Rock album.  It’s just one of ten Top 10 rock hits and seven Top 10 alternative hits.  The band also has two Grammy nominations and an MTV VMA nomination.

For more information on each band and the upcoming tour, fans can go online to the festival’s official website, http://www.carnivalofmadness.com or its official Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/CarnivalofMadness.  Audiences can also get the latest updates on the tour via Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube at http://twitter.com/carnivalofmadness, http://instagram.com/carnivalofmadness, and http://www.youtube.com/carnivalofmadness.
