Mystery concert announcement(s): the plot thickens


If you’re like me, you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for the Save Mart Center’s “major” concert announcement coming Friday at 10 a.m. Heck, I had a dream last night I was at the press conference and the band was revealed to be Fried Green Brains — a new supergroup with Sammy Hagar, Carlos Santana and Ty Segall. Yes. it’s my brain that’s fried.

Weird dreams aside, the plot has thickened** for what I’m now calling Mystery Concert Announcement Friday. There will now be two big concerts announced.

In addition to the Save Mart Center’s announcement, New Rock 104.1 is teasing a big concert announcement during tomorrow’s morning show. Originally, that announcement was due Monday, but it’s been moved up to Friday. To be clear: this is a DIFFERENT concert than what’s being announced at the press conference.

Back to that “major” announcement: I have one piece of info that might help with any predictions. Classic rock radio station 95.7 The Fox says it will be broadcasting live from the presser. That means two things: (1) It’s not Bieber, Gaga, etc. (2) You can listen in for yourself.

Of course, we’ll have both concert announcements up on The Beehive ASAP.

**Obviously, because there are more question marks on the picture now.

Laura says:

I think it will be Kiss/Motley Crue

Israel says:

Maybe the fact that David Lee Roth is back with Van Halen is making it a bigger deal?

Phil says:

With that info I’m thinking it’s going to be The Boss now, fingers crossed.

Ryan says:

God I hope it’s David Hasselhoff.

Jessica says:

I wonder if the Fox’s announcement is the Scorpions. That seemed like the one big “get” that the Save Mart Center couldn’t book last year.

For the New Rock one, who in their genre is touring? Their FB page says it’s someone current.

Teresa says:

KISS has been here several times. Please don’t tell me Cher is doing another farewell tour.

Kevin says:

Oh god please let it be Indigo Girls or Roxette.

DRP says:

This just got so much better! A rock show and a classic rock show? Yes please!

Kevin says:

The question marks are beating the snot out of the SMC. The first one has friends.

cb says:

Chicago AND the Doobie Brothers are currently touring . . . would be GREAT if it were them!!!

Spin Doctor says:

Savemart=The Boss
New Rock=The Biebs

Dominic says:

Santana and the all man brothers?

Linkin Park
