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 Sleep Country Amphitheater in Ridgefield. For $43, you get one G-Pass for reserved seating in section 202, 203, 205, or 206, rows L–U, or section 201 or 207, rows A–U, on Sunday, September 23, at 1 p.m. (up to a $57.50 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. Doors open at 1 p.m.
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" or bob heads as P.O.D. blends hard-hitting genres such as hip-hop, punk, and reggae with faith-based lyrics.
