Isn’t that awesome? Well it sure is to me because I have been looking forward to this particular tour ever since it was announced. This has surely been a great summer of tours because we have had the Mayhem Fest, The Uproar Fest, Gigantour and the Summer Slaughter already pass though and this fun event will close out the summer months and lead us into Fall.
So who’s going?
I’ve already mentioned how we love going to the live shows at the PiercingMetal HQ and that is why I am doing a last minute reminder for any of those fans of the big events to let them know that the 2013 edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival is beginning today. This years event features Alice In Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Coheed and Cambria along with Circa Survive who will be performing on the Rockstar Energy Main Stage. There is also an Ernie Ball Festival Stage that will host Walking Papers (featuring Duff McKagan), Middle Class Rut, New Politics, Danko Jones, Chuck Shaffer Picture Show and the local Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands winner in each market. It’s clear that there is a lot to enjoy at this one.

Since the press release addresses some of the items I was going to bring up, I will leave it at this and say check out the poster, press copy and dates. I’ll return at the close to offer up some additional thoughts.

Since this came more than a month after the first one I decided to do a new post with the referral. You can have the poster again though and a band photo since we love our readers.
