Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see Trial by Fire – A Tribute to Journey with modern- and classic-rock cover band Fiftywatt Freight Train at The Fillmore Charlotte. For $7, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Friday, February 8, at 9 p.m. (up to a $13 value, including all fees). Doors open at 8 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.

Charlotte-based rockers Trial by Fire – A Tribute to Journey named themselves after a project some might consider a failure. In 1996, the band behind “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Lights,” and “Any Way You Want It,” came together after a decade spent pursuing solo material to release the album Trial by Fire, and they hoped to support it with a flashy new tour and a line of gourmet popcorn. But then Steve Perry injured his hip, and the tour was scrapped.

Trial by Fire – A Tribute to Journey picks up where that story ends, creating a high-energy concert experience that imagines the sights and sounds of a vintage-1996 band that never hit the road. Lead singer Ernie Shepherd—his voice a vigorous stand-in for Perry’s soaring tenor—traverses the stage confidently and welcomes audience sing-alongs as he belts out hit after hit in front of four other hard-rocking musicians. Shepherd has spent nearly a lifetime preparing for the role: on the band’s website, he says that the first record he ever bought was Escape.

The Fillmore Charlotte

The Fillmore Charlotte models itself on the iconic San Francisco venue. Once a textile mill, the open space follows the original Fillmore’s signature decor, from red-oak hardwood floors to glimmering chandeliers to stadium-style tiers that result in pristine sightlines for attending fans.
