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 the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. For $15, you get one ticket for general admission to the lawn on Friday, August 24, at 2 p.m. (up to a $29.75 value, including all fees). Gates 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.
