Rock on the Range CANADA

Posted by bigincanada on April 24, 2009

NEW BANDS ADDED TO LINEUP FOR 1st ROCK ON THE RANGE CANADA

AMERICA’S ROCK FESTIVAL MAKES DEBUT NORTH OF THE BORDER SATURDAY, JUNE 27th AT WINNIPEG’S CANAD INNS STADIUM

ROCK ON THE RANGE–America’s premiere destination rock festival makes its Canadian debut on June 27th at Winnipeg, Manitoba’s Canad Inns Stadium. The 2009 lineup for the nationally-renowned festival will be highlighted by performances from some of rock’s biggest artists around the world including Billy Talent, Rise Against, Rancid, Theory Of A Deadman and Shinedown. The festival is pleased to announce two additions to the lineup: L.A. Myspace sensation Hollywood Undead and Michigan rock group Pop Evil, whose song “100 in a 55” is a Top 10 rock hit.  Presented by Right Arm Entertainment and True North Sports & Entertainment Ltd, the one-day, two-stage music and lifestyle event features a potent lineup of more than a dozen bands.

In addition to the music, ROTR Canada will be doing its part to go green.  Festival-goers can deposit their old, unused and broken cell phones at special drop-off boxes inside the stadium in return for ROTR awards points redeemable for a variety of prizes.

The third American version of the festival will take place on May 16-17 in Columbus, Ohio.  Last year’s event drew more than 50,00 people.

Tickets for ROCK ON THE RANGE are on sale via www.rockontherangecanada.com and www.ticketmaster.ca, and all local Ticketmaster outlets. Ticket prices start as low as $29.50.

Find out how to score your way in here: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=29053291&blogId=482136174.

If the shows are going to be anything like their new album “Fantasies,” you will not want to miss them! And whether you already have “Fantasies” or not, be sure check out the packages they’re offering through their webstore, simply because they’re sweet.

Coldplay and Beastie Boys at OSHEAGA 2009!

MONTREAL, March 31 /CNW Telbec/ – Gillett Entertainment Group presents the 4th edition of the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival that will take place in the park on August 1st and 2nd. Osheaga is proud to announce that the headliners for this year’s edition are the multi-platinum selling band Coldplay on Saturday, August 1st and hip-hop pioneers Beastie Boys on Sunday, August 2nd.

Osheaga is one of only two North American festival appearances that Coldplay will make this year. 2008 Grammy Award winners Coldplay continue to take the world by storm while touring on the wings of their high-soaring album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends which included a visit to a sold out Bell Centre on July 20th. We are extremely happy to welcome them to the Osheaga grounds on August 1st!

The Beastie Boys will bring their one of a kind lyrical and musical wizardry to headline Osheaga’s second day on the island Sunday, August 2nd. Montreal fans got their last dose of the Beasties’ funk at the Metropolis and at the Bell Centre on back-to-back nights in September 2007. Don’t miss these musical trailblazers rock Osheaga as they tear through over 25 years of hits!

Here are a few of the artists that will be on stage (other bands will be confirmed shortly):
COLDPLAY – BEASTIE BOYS – JASON MRAZ – THE ROOTS – RUFUS WAINWRIGHT – GIRL TALK – THE DECEMBERISTS – CRYSTAL CASTLES – LYKKE LI – BEAST – ELBOW – ARCTIC MONKEYS – THE TING TINGS – WINTER GLOVES – THE HONEY BROTHERS – JOSH RITTER – PARLOVR – KITTY DAISY AND LEWIS – LE VOLUME ETAIT AU MAXIMUM – MOTHERS FATHERS…
