The Bud Light CityFest concert series showers the open air of the recently constructed Raleigh Amphitheater with five of rock 'n' roll’s most venerable and beloved acts. Hard-rock heartthrob and Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach kick-starts the fest on September 10, rousing crowds with his cast-iron voice and mythical lion’s mane. Better Than Ezra, the New Orleans trio behind the hit song “Good,” belts out parcels of pop on September 17, and jam collective Rusted Root colors the night in upbeat melodies on October 1. Ed Kowalczyk, ringleader of the seminal band LIVE, challenges oxygen to a wrestling match as he belts out hits on October 8. Concluding the raucous series with concentrated testosterone, troubadour Vince Neil, from Mötley Crue, sings time-honored railroad anthems about girls, girls, and girls.
Before every show of the series at 5 p.m., fans are invited to get their party at the Bud Light Rage Cage on Lenoir Street inside the gates, which features food vendors, comedians, fashion displays, a mechanical bull, and buckets of local art. Make sure to check the venue’s FAQ page for rules and regulations about bringing in smoking baby strollers or rollerblading camera crews.
