Godsmack and Shinedown to Bring Nation-Wide Tour to Downtown Las Vegas Events Center Friday, August 3



Celebrating new albums and decades of music, tickets go on sale Friday, March 23

This summer, rock-lovers in Las Vegas can catch some of the genre’s biggest names when co-headliners, Godsmack and Shinedown, play the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on Friday, August 3. The highly-anticipated tour stop will celebrate the spring album releases of both multi-platinum groups.

Local tickets will go on sale Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. PST. Tickets can be purchased at www.dlvec.com and start at $49 plus applicable fees. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and performers take the stage at 8 p.m.

Since smashing their way on to the scene in 1998, Godsmack has been revered as 21st century hard rock titans. To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles on mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” and “I Stand Alone.” Among multiple Grammy nominations, the group has sold over 20 million records worldwide and unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.


Leading the charge for new age rock, multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums. Every one of the singles released over Shinedown’s nearly two-decade career has ascended to the Top 10 on the rock charts – a feat unmatched by any other rock band. Hailed as a fiery and always exciting live act, the band has racked up countless sold-out tours and festival headlining sets.


When Legends Rise, Godsmack’s first album in four years, is due out April 27 via BMG and marks their debut on the label. The new project comes 20 years after the release of their self-titled debut album. Playing alongside their longtime friends in music, multi-platinum rock band Shinedown recently announced the release of their sixth studio album Attention Attention, out May 4th on Atlantic Records. The record offers thought-provoking lyrics, explosive guitars, unpredictable rhythms and cinematic flourishes in the band’s biggest and boldest chapter yet.


Supporting Godsmack and Shinedown for an electric evening will be New Zealanders, Like A Storm. Led by brothers Chris, Matt, and Kent Brooks, with Zach Wood on drums, the group has become the most successful New Zealand rock band in U.S. radio history.

Jason Aldean Shares Ultimate Experience With Superfan


Aldean To Appear on Good Morning America and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tomorrow


As RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean continues to sit at the top of the all-genre iTunes album chart since Friday’s release of his seventh studio album THEY DON’T KNOW (Broken Bow Records), Aldean and Music Choice surprised superfan Monica McNeill with an experience of a lifetime. While in New York City today (9/12), McNeill was in shock after Aldean stepped into the studio to surprise her with round trip accommodations for two to the Live Nation’s Country music festival of her choice in 2017, a copy of the new album, a pair of Justin Boots and his signature Resistol hat.


Aldean continues his trek through New York City tomorrow on Good Morning America (ABC at 8:30A ET on 9/13) where he’ll discuss the new music and offer a behind-the-scenes look at this past weekend’s two-night stand at Boston’s Fenway Park with over 60,000 fans, before performing his new single “A Little More Summertime” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (9/13 at 11:35P ET on NBC). Aldean has “earned his spot at the top of Country music over 11 years of hard touring and hard rocking,” (Rolling Stone) as each album released has earned PLATINUM or better tallying more than 14 million album sales and 17 No. one hits. His SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR continues to “live up to his hype and record success” (Kansas City Star) as the “successful summer tour of some of the nation’s largest venues” (USA Today) continues to host sold-out crowds.

Live Nation’s premiere family of country music festivals shot out of the gate just five short years ago, when Watershed was born at The Gorge, WA. With a history of selling out in minutes and a reputation for hosting the genre’s biggest superstar acts, Watershed became the first country festival to host two back-to-back weekends this year. The establishment of three further destination festivals shortly followed, including Faster Horses in Brooklyn, MI, Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas, NV and Country LakeShake in Chicago, IL. All unique in their approach, but with the common theme of fan-enjoyment at the forefront of priorities, the sister festivals have built a reputation through the artist community as a must-play festival of the touring year.
