Choose from Four Options
- $7 for one general-admission ticket to see Lotus Land Band: Rush Tribute Band on Friday, July 13, at 8:30 p.m. (up to a $15.83 value, including all fees).
With double necked guitars, thundering bass, and a drum kit that has its own zip code, the American Rush tribute band Lotus Land salutes the Canadian prog-rock legends in a set packed with greatest hits such as “Tom Sawyer” and deep cuts designed to hook the most diehard Rush fans. Bassist Chris Nelson replicates Geddy Lee’s skyscraping vocals, Bob Chartrand nails Alex Lifeson’s guitar prowess, and Mark Dalton grows a third arm on command to summon the famous drumming style of Neal Peart. Opiate: A Tool Tribute Band opens.
- $11 for one general-admission ticket to see Saving Abel on Tuesday, July 17, at 7 p.m. (up to a $22.75 value, including all fees).
Mississippi’s Saving Abel deep-fry their meat and potatoes brand of rock and roll to a crackling Southern crisp. Best known for hit singles such as “Addicted” and “The Sex is Good,” and for their tours with contemporaries such as Nickelback, the genre-hopping band draws audiences into gregarious, rowdy live shows. Touring in support of the latest album Bringing Down the Giant, the band cranks out a hit list of hard rocking anthems, goodtime grooves, and tender ballads.
- $12 for one general-admission ticket to see Fuel on Wednesday, July 18, at 6:30 p.m. (up to a $25.55 value, including all fees).
With original lead singer Brett Scallions back behind the mic, the four-headed hard rock hydra of Fuel returns with a full tank of combustible grooves. Known for late '90s hits such as “Shimmer” and “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” the post-grungers racked up a score of platinum albums. Recharged with a new rhythm section featuring bassist Brad Stewart from Shinedown and Ken Schalk of Candiria on the skins, Fuel pumps out the monster hits that made them Fuel, steered by the prodigal Scallions’ passionate bellow.
- $9 for one general-admisison ticket to see Led Zeppelin 2 – The Live Experience on Saturday, August 4, at 9 p.m. (up to a $19.66 value, including all fees).
LedZeppelin 2 doesn’t just cop the hooks and looks of the godfathers of hard, hobbit-esque rock. What sets the critically acclaimed New York band apart from other Zep clones is its diligent replication of an authentic Led Zeppelin concert. With swaggering improvisation, the group restages famous Zeppelin gigs from their garage days through the excess-loving heyday of The Song Remains the Same, complete with bowed guitars, tectonic drum solos, and virtuoso Plant-esque vocal histrionics.
The cathedral ceilings and stained-glass windows really gave the entire concert a spiritual dimension ... very impressed with the sound quality.Renea R., Yelp, 6/21/12
