It’s Cody Johnson’s time.

After landing two releases in the Top 10 of Billboard’s country albums chart on his own CoJo label and selling 74,000 tickets for a single show, to earn recognition as the only unsigned artist in history to sell out NRG Stadium at RodeoHouston, one of Texas’ most-sought-after talents finally agreed to sign with a major label. Warner Music Nashville won a Music Row sweepstakes and enticed Johnson – who’d turned down several majors before – to join the team and take a shot at turning a concert success story into one with multimedia, national hit-making cred.

Three years. That’s how long Lynyrd Skynrd promised their Farewell Tour would last. Nearly three years later, the last show is right around the corner. After that, they are calling it quits. Forever. But because they love you and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip SO MUCH, the self-proclaimed Buffalo Chip house band decided to make an exception for YOU ONLY and no one else. On Sunday, August 9, 2020, you’re invited to a massive goodbye party for southern rock’s native sons to help bring an epic Buffalo Chip tradition to an end.

Never to perform again after this tour, the band unexpectedly accepted an offer that will let you say goodbye and share your fondest memories partying at the Chip with one of the greatest rock-and-roll bands of all time. To commemorate their final appearance, a larger-than-life10-foot tall farewell card will be positioned near Miss Chippie during the day that will be available for signatures and pictures.

When the sustain from the final notes of classics like “Free Bird,” “Saturday Night Special,” “Simple Man,” “Tuesday’s Gone,” “That Smell,” “Gimme Back My Bullets,” “They Call Me the Breeze,” and “Gimme Three Steps,” fade into the South Dakota horizon, it’ll signify the end of an era that was the soundtrack to millions of people’s lives the world over.

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 40-plus-year legacy and 30 million albums sold have earned them fans from all ages and walks of life. No place is that more evident than their concerts at the Chip.

Take one look around the audience, and you’ll find folks aged 18 to 80 waving lighters and singing along to “Sweet Home Alabama” in blissful unison. It’s scenes like this that prove Skynyrd has withstood the test of time to become a driving force in the lifeblood of American music. August 9th will be your last chance to be part of that.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most respected bands, with spots on both Rolling Stone Magazine’s and VH1’s lists of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are also credited with popularizing and shaping the entire genre of southern rock. It’s easy to see why generations of music lovers like you have become die-hard Skynyrd fans who just can’t ever get enough.

There’s no other band more fit to rock the Best Party Anywhere® than the mighty Lynyrd Skynyrd, and no audience will be better able to greet them than you. After all, this band has likely been the soundtrack of your life as far back as you can remember.

Challenges actualize progression.

The Devil Wears Prada consistently choose to both challenge themselves and the world around them. The group—Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [vocals, guitar], Andy Trick [bass], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synthesizers], and Giuseppe Capolupo [drums]—bend and break all boundaries on their seventh full-length and debut for Solid State Records, The Act. Pulling plain-spoken poetry through distorted discord and dissonance, the six-piece deliver a dynamic and definitive statement.
“This just feels very ‘make it, or break it’ for us,” exclaims Mike. “All bets are in on The Act. We tried to make something outside of the norm for rock, metalcore, or heavy music. We often hear commentary rock is dead now; I don’t think it has to be that way though. Look at the corners pop and hip-hop turn. Artists just need to reinvent themselves and make something creative and inventive again. Reinvention is what we’re driving towards.”

Since the beginning, Fozzy has been about hard work, dedication and delivering great rock n roll to their devoted fans worldwide; reminding them that music is all about invoking dirty, sweaty jubilation and doing it LOUDLY!

However, calling them just “entertainers” would be abridging their talent as Ward is one of the most versatile, underrated riffers in rock n roll and Jericho’s vocal range and passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to excel in pretty much everything he does. Throw in the powerhouse rock solid drumming of Frank Fontsere, the blazing leads of Billy Grey and the genius & energy of returning bassist Paul DiLeo and it's no surprise that Fozzy has skyrocketed into becoming one of the hottest rock acts in years.

Hairball is more than just a band, and certainly more than a tribute band!

A band puts on a concert - Hairball puts on an event! Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won't soon forget. The lights, sound, smoke, fire, bombs, and screaming hoards of avid fans...to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!

Vocalists Joe, Kris and Bobby lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop- dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night.

The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of HBK on the electric bass, Billy on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they've cultivated over decades of tireless performing. This isn’t a side job. These guys eat, sleep and breathe Rock & Roll!

2020 finds Hairball celebrating its 20th year of rocking hundreds of thousands of people across the country. Constantly adding more characters, more pyrotechnics, more lights, more sound, more props, more surprises...more everything! While Happy often tells the audience "Today is the first day is the rest of your life!" Hairball performs every show as though it could be their last. Every night is a 100% full-on, no-holds-barred, exciting, chaotic, fiery party that has to be experienced to be believed!

As important to Hairball as the music, are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they are 10 years old or 100, Hairball fans bring an unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that enhances the arena experience. Hairball knows it wouldn't exist without its fans and takes every opportunity to let them know that. Whether it's a pre-show meet and greet, hanging out at the merch booth, or chatting online, Hairball has a lot in common with its fans and it's always a good time when they get together.

Don't confuse Hairball with the countless "80's Tribute" bands across the country. Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and expression of music that isn't simply a retro flashback. It's a way of life, and it's not going anywhere soon!

"Listen to the lyrics, they're going to make you feel something... " - Mixi

That something is the essence of Stitched Up Heart - a band built around the strength that comes from realizing we are the only ones that control our lives, and focused on the hope that reminds us there is always light at the end of the darkest tunnel. It's something heavy and powerful, jarring the album's epic closing track "I Can't Breathe" from a piano-paced ballad that would do Lady Gaga proud, to a metallic onslaught of drop-tuned guitars that is sure to see the band sharing a stage with the hardest of their hard rock peers. And it is something undeniable, Mixi's voice taking flight amidst anthems of self-awareness that bridge the unrelenting confidence of In This Moment's Maria Brink and the soulful transcendence of Adele.

Beartooth began as an emotional exorcism. Conceived, constructed, and unleashed by one man in a basement studio. Now, even as the band has grown to become a headlining festival act; cracked Billboard’s Top 25; lit up SiriusXM radio; and were crowned Breakthrough Band at both the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and Loudwire Music Awards, Beartooth’s music and message remain intensely personal.
