Like a haunted house, a rock concert can induce shivers, goose bumps, and lots of high-pitched yowls. Experience the thrills and chills of live music with this GrouponLive deal to the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival at First Niagara Pavilion. For $22, you get one G-Pass for seating in the rear of section 4-5 or 8-9 on Friday, August 31, at 1 p.m. (up to a $45.50 total value, including ticketing fees). 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.
The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival unites a lineup of more than a half-dozen hard-rock heavyweights for a full day of eardrum-pummeling fun. Shinedown is known for infusing post-grunge distortion with pristine melody, as evidenced by the intro to the 2003 chart-topper "Fly from the Inside." With amps blazing and guitars melting into sherbet, the group will also rip through tunes from its recent release, Amaryllis, as well as tracks adopted by World Wrestling Entertainment to accompany pay-per-view events. In preparation for the upcoming release of live concert performances, Godsmack will deliver dark crowd-pleasers such as "Awake," "I Stand Alone," and "Voodoo," which chug along with cathartic angst and occult imagery. Fest-goers can lift their lighters to Staind’s ballad "Outside," pump their fists during the rap rock of Papa Roach’s "Last Resort," or bob heads as P.O.D. blends hard-hitting genres such as hip-hop, punk, and reggae with faith-based lyrics.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
First Niagara Pavilion
Under the sprawling roof of First Niagara Pavilion, music greats such as Billy Joel, Rush, and Jimmy Buffett have all taken over the stage as fans throughout the amphitheater space watch, transfixed. Whether enjoying the show from the open-air pavilion or the verdant lawn, concertgoers demonstrate their love for the performers by dancing along to the music or holding up lighters engraved with the lead singer’s astrological sign.
