Vince Neil’s unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of a generation including “Wild Side”, “Shout at the Devil,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same Ol’ Situation,” and many others.

Buckcherry is a Grammy Award-nominated band responsible for smashes including “Lit Up”, “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry”. They staunchly uphold the commandments of rock music with an arsenal of anthems primed to explode on impact and teeming with riotous energy, sexy swagger, and primal chops intact.

Saturday night will feature a Country Music concert featuring platinum-selling high-octane entertainer Chris Janson, and opening the show is fast rising Canadian Country Music star Eric Ethridge.

Janson’s sophomore album, Everybody, produced his second No. 1 hit single, “Fix A Drink”, the chart topping follow up to his No. 1 debut smash and summer anthem “Buy Me A Boat”. His current single “Drunk Girl”, is Top 10 on the country airplay charts and won Song of the Year at the Music Row awards.
