Like most people in Philadelphia, you probably cannot wait for the warmer weather to arrive. It’s only January but with tickets going on sale now for many Summer 2013 concerts, the winter will be a bit more bearable and the feeling of hot sun melting your face off isn’t as far away as it seems.
The MMRBQ is May 18th. Mark your calendars, tickets go on sale at noon today. One ticket and a full day to see six bands, not bad for only $50 (plus those fees, of course). The first four bands will be general admission, but the last two is assigned seating. Don’t worry, you still only need that one ticket.
This is a yearly tradition at the Susquehanna Bank Center and unlike some bands who roll into town on a Thursday night, this show is on a Saturday. You have no excuse- no work on Sunday and you still have Friday night to prep and relax before the big show. Check out the line-up:
Buckcherry– it’s their second time playing the MMRBQ and their new album, Confessions, is out on February 19th.
Kid Felix– come support this local band. They’re at Milkboy tonight if you’re one of the few who haven’t heard them before.
Cheap Trick– the band just announced new tour dates. They’ll be performing the Rock on The Range three-day festival in Ohio, along with some of the other 2013 MMRBQ bands. But no reason to go all the way up there when you can see them in your own back yard.
Device– the highly anticipated band from Disturbed’s David Draiman. Device is set to debut their new first single on February 19th with a full album release on April 9th.
After those four bands play, the assigned seating kicks in. Be there early, because headlining this year’s show are Soundgarden and Alice In Chains. Soundgarden’s latest album, King Animal, was released in November. Alice in Chains recently finished recording a new album. With no set release date, it will be out sometime in 2013.
Remember, tickets go on sale TODAY. Check out the WMMR website for info on how to pick them up.
