There are Festival Shows and then there are festival shows and while I’ve been traditionally using this particular category for the tours that are heading across country, there are times like these where that needs to spotlight a festival of note. That said, let’s get the information out about the upcoming Monster Rock Allegience Fest that will happen in the Fall of 2015. I’ve shared the press copy and some provided photos but will be back to discuss with you later on. Let’s go.
The Press Release:

“We are very excited to host Monster Energy Rock Allegiance at PPL Park,” said Nick Sakiewicz, CEO & Operating Partner of Keystone Sports and Entertainment and the Philadelphia Union. “This will be the first major music concert at the stadium. PPL Park provides a picturesque backdrop with amazing vistas of the Delaware River and Commodore Barry Bridge. A central location to the Greater Philadelphia region with easy highway access makes it the ideal spot for this great show. We look forward to working with Danny Wimmer Presents and Live Nation to welcome rock fans to what will be a monster show and present the best that Philly has to offer.”
Monster Energy Rock Allegiance is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, Global Spectrum at PPL Park and Live Nation.

PPL Park is a state-of-the-art Major League Soccer stadium that serves as the home to Philadelphia Union and is located at 1 Stadium Drive in Chester, PA, just outside Philadelphia.
“I want to thank Monster Energy for coming on as our title sponsor and for their continued support of rock music. Monster Energy is the perfect partner for DWP events since they share our vision, fully embrace the rock culture, and devote time and money to helping to develop tomorrow’s festival headliners,” comments Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents.
The festival is fueled by Monster Energy. Additional 2015 sponsors include Jack Daniel’s and Fxck Cancer, with more to be announced.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I will simply leave this as “Wowzawow does this sound awesome”. I seldom travel out of New York State or New Jersey for shows but think that I might need to break that standard for this one. Of course its going to be a lot of work for any of the media folks that attend but it also sure seems like one hell of a day is going to be happening as well. So that leaves me with the questions for you readers. Who’s thinking about heading to this one and who’s driving?
