Just as they defied authority in the 1960s, rock stars have begun to defy science by cloning themselves to make their tours less exhausting. Quincentuple your fun with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $37, you get two two-day passes to The Tribute Fest at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth on Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 (a $75.25 value, including tax). Gates open at 2 p.m. on Friday, with music starting at 3 p.m., and gates open at 11 a.m. on Saturday, with music commencing at noon.
Over the course of two tribute-packed days, crowds will emerge in droves to bang their heads to classic rock and metal tunes played in faithful cadence. A lineup of cover artists shredding to the familiar sounds of Metallica, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Led Zeppelin returns to an era when guitars ruled the earth and struck fear into the heart of the disco-ball population. The festival kicks off on Friday with Judas Priest’s most faithful disciples—Electric Eye—hammering out more British Steel than a factory in Manchester, followed by the amplified explosions of Aultimate Ozzy's tribute to Ozzy Osbourne. Saturday’s proceedings crank the nostalgia dial as Rubber Soul enhances the crowd’s spiritual elasticity with a range of Beatles covers, and Zed Leppelin showers audiences with more hot licks than a dachshund in the summer.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, a nonprofit that has been helping veterans find homes for more than 21 years. Not included with this Groupon, festival-goers can secure parking for an additional $5 each day and camp by the bay overnight Friday and Saturday for an additional $15 fee.
