In Sunday, September 4th, the gates open at 1:30 pm on the grounds of the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center for one of the biggest, loudest, most bad ass line up of Rock stars in CPR Fest history! 97.9 WCPR partnered with The Rock Star Energy Drink Uproar Festival to bring you the biggest Rock Tour of the Summer. No wonder CPR is the #1 radio station of the Gulf Coast.
On the RockStar Energy Drink Main Stage: AVENGED SEVENFOLD, Three Days Grace, Seether, and Bullet for My Valentine
On the Best Buy Music Gear Second Stage: Escape the Fate, Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying, and The Black Cloud Collective
Together, these bands have over 30 Top Ten Rock Radio hits that have blasted over the airwaves throughout the years. The music is going to blow the lid off, and the sets and visual affects are going to be so hot and so huge that the crowds will be talking about CPR Fest XV long after the event comes to a close. This is a major tour that will fill two gigantic stages. Ticket sales are at an all time high…so don’t wait…get yours now! General Admission Prices: $58.00 in advance, $70.00 day of the show. (Limit 8 tickets per household) VIP tickets are also available for purchase.
You asked for it? You got it! CPR Fest XV will be held outdoors this year. Just a few restrictions at the gates: No ice chests or outside food or drink. Lawn chairs are allowed but remember that most people will be standing during the main concerts, and there is no guarantee that you will be able to see the bands when you are seated. There is No Re-Entry, so if you leave the gated area you cannot come back in. Food and beverage concessions will be available, and there is a charge of $5.00 for parking.
Scott Fox and Riley will host this awesome event. The after party is still under wraps but keep your radio tuned in to 97.9 WCPR for up to the minute information. Best Buy is doing a National Local Band Search in each city on the tour. There is one slot available for one local Gulf Coast band. To find out more, check out the WCPR website. The length of the show is expected to be from 2:00pm to 10:30pm
