Shinedown had some fun with their rider during a 2009 tour, where they paid tribute to the famous Foo Fighters rider by requesting assorted sugary cereals, but not the ones from "the Color Me Badd reunion show last night," and Van Halen's legendary brown M&Ms request by demanding the purple Skittles be removed from the fruity mix, because according to the band, "Purple is for terrorists."
Things may be cooling down a bit once September hits, but how much does anything really cool down in the desert? Keeping the temperatures high on Sept. 28 and 29 in Phoenix will be the inaugural Desert Uprising two-day festival.
Shinedown recently launched a revolution to bring rock music back to the forefront. With frontman Brent Smith leading the charge, he challenged fans to stand up and put their fists in the air for rock and with the band’s latest release ‘Amaryllis’ now out, Smith and Shinedown are proving to be worthy adversaries for the cause.
Shinedown will continue to celebrate the release of their new disc ‘Amaryllis’ throughout the summer as the headliner on the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival kicking off in August with Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach and more - but even leading up to that, they have a lot of creative surprises in store for fans.
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the tour dates and locations of the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival, today’s the day! Loudwire has the exclusive early look at the dates for the 30-show run in August and September, so check them out below to find out when the massive rock extravaganza will be hitting your 'hood.
