During concerts, a musician's wild side emerges, such as when a guitarist destroys an amplifier or a singer eats a zebra. Observe untamed talent with this GrouponLive deal to see Filter and Fuel at The Fillmore Charlotte. For $14, you get one G-Pass for standing general admission on Tuesday, July 31, at 8 p.m. (up to a $27 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 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.
The industrial-rock force of Filter pipes more than 17 years of raw, cathartic hits into the ears of fans, hammering crowds with its signature blend of mechanical mayhem and guitar-driven calamity. From the band's debut album, Short Bus, which bore the mid-'90s smash “Hey Man Nice Shot,” through its latest collection of screamable valentines, The Trouble With Angels, lead singer and guitarist Richard Patrick’s urgent voice conveys a football coach’s heartbreak and a guidance counselor’s angst.
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 riffs. Known for hits such as “Shimmer” and “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” the post-grungers racked up platinum credentials and a Billboard Top 40 hit before entering an era marked by changing band members. Now recharged with a new rhythm section, featuring guitarist Andy Andersson, bassist Brad Stewart from Shinedown, and Ken Schalk of Candiria on the skins, Fuel pumps out the monster hits and distorted ballads that made crowds headbang and feuding bikers pass each other apology letters, steered by the prodigal Scallions’s passionate and irreplaceable growl.
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.
