Jerrod Niemann & Love and Theft
Jerrod Niemann continues to pursue the innovative sonic approach that has defined his identity in today’s country music, while bearing down even harder on the rock-solid songwriting that first brought him to Nashville’s attention. His latest release, High Noon, represents a musical blend of country, pop and rock with splashes of electronic, forward-looking beats offering a wide emotional spectrum. Other popular hits include “Lover, Lover”, “Drink To That All Night”, and “What Do You Want?”. Niemann has also written songs for such artists as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton and Lee Brice.
Love and Theft combines small-town vibes with big country sound, a catchy combination that landed them a deal with RCA Nashville. Although the band formed as a trio in 2006, current members Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson have continued to tour and record successfully, topping the country music charts in 2011 with hit single “Angel Eyes.”

Eddie Money & Blue Oyster Cult
Rock & roll icon, Eddie Money, has been making music and delivering it to his fans since the mid 70s and wouldn’t have it any other way. With hits like “Two Tickets to Paradise”, “Baby Hold On”, “Walk on Water”, “Think I’m In Love” and “Shakin”, Eddie continues to be one of the hardest working men in rock & roll. A student of legendary vocal coach Judy Davis and prodigy of manager Bill Graham, the early days of MTV and music videos launched Eddie Money into stardom. An accomplished musician, he sings, writes and plays the saxophone, harmonica and piano.
Blue Oyster Cult, the Long Island, NY-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work for nearly four decades. They occupy a unique place in rock history for having earned both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success with classic hits such as the haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”, “Godzilla”, “Burnin’ for You” and so many more. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and Blue Oyster Cult was listed in VH1′s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

Queensryche with special guest Winger
The Seattle quintet, Queensrÿche, remains one of the most revered hard rock outfits in history with over 20 million albums sold globally and 6 million in the U.S. alone. Guitarist and band co-founder Michael Wilton said, “We’re keeping things fresh, while maintaining that thread that got us here in the first place back in 1981.”
The group is known for immersive, theatrical live performances and they’ve toured tirelessly with everyone from Metallica to Black Sabbath. Classic albums include “The Warning”, “Empire” and “Operation: Mindcrime”. “Kerrang!” ranked #34 on the “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All-Time” list and is often uttered in the same breath alongside classic concept records such as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and The Who’s “Tommy.” Their current tour emphasizes material their loyal fans have begged for, presented in a manner they’ve never seen to date.
Pop rockers Winger formed in 1986 in New York City. In 1990, they were nominated for Best New Heavy Metal Band. Popular classic singles include: Can’t Get Enuff (reached #6 on the Mainstream Rock charts), Headed for a Heartbreak (Mainstream Rock #8), Down Incognito (Mainstream Rock #15), and Easy Come Easy Go (Mainstream Rock #17). Albums that reached platinum status include 1981′s “In the Heart of the Young” and 1989′s self-titled “Winger”.
