The Word Alive - Dark Matter Tour with special guests Fit For A King, Out Came The Wolves, Arcane Haven, Who We Are
People can immediately tell if you’re real. They know if your art is genuine, and they’ll stick with you if they hear, see, and feel your truth in everything you create. Since forming in 2008, The Word Alive have built that sort of trust with their diehard fan base - the sort of trust that gains you followers not just for a fleeting moment, but for a lifetime. So, it’s only fitting that the Phoenix, AZ quintet’s third full-length album for Fearless Records bears the title of ‘REAL.’ Over the course of two full-length albums and an EP, The Word Alive have risen through the ranks to become modern heavy music elite. They’ve toured with everybody from Killswitch Engage to A Day To Remember in addition to gracing the stage on Warped Tour multiple times, including a full run on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour. They’ve garnered loyal press support from the likes of Revolver and Alternative Press, to musician magazines Modern Drummer and Guitar World, as well as strong brand partnerships with Monster Energy, DW Drums and Ibanez. wearethewordalive.com/ | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets

Jim Donovan & Sun King Warriors Album Release Bash with special guests Tupelo Donovan & Jeremy Levin
The band is best described as a mix of groove rock, Americana and two tons of drums. Think Led Zeppelin III & IV mixed with Rusted Root’s “When I Woke” era positivity & rhythmic intensity, and the authentic vocal emotion of REM’s Michael Stipe.
Opening the show will be Donovan’s daughter Tupelo and guitarist Jeremy Levin. Concert goers are invited to bring a non-perishable food item for the local Millvale food bank for which patrons will receive a Sun King Warriors bumper sticker. example: jimdonovandrums.com/ | Purchase Tickets Online | Reserve Balcony
Rachel Platten - The Wildfire Tour with special guests Eric Hutchinson, Christina Grimmie
Hands sweaty, heart pounding, Rachel Platten stands backstage at the International Soca Monarch Finals, about to take the stage for the very first time to sing in front of 80,000 people. This is moment that would forever change her life. “When I stepped on [that] stage, it was like I was struck with a bolt of electricity,” recalls the pop artist. “I had that aha moment of ‘Oh God, this is what I’m supposed to do with my life!’” In that moment, Rachel discovered her true calling, but making it a reality would take a bit longer. “All you need to know between now and then is that it was 10 years of accepting any and every gig, believing when there wasn’t much to believe in, and lots of cereal with no milk,” she says. In the next decade, groundwork would be laid for “Fight Song,” the first single from her Columbia Records debut. “Fight Song” is an uplifting anthem that perfectly embodies Rachel’s own vulnerability and power, with a “don’t give up” message that resonates across all audiences. rachelplatten.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets
Opposite Day with guests The Summercamp, Fiveunder, Witchfinder
Carly Rae Jepsen with special guests Cardiknox, Fairground Saints
On the follow-up to her U.S. debut album Kiss—a 2012 release featuring the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum-selling breakout hit “Call Me Maybe”—singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen brings new depth and dimension to her undeniably hooky but heart-driven breed of pop music. With a sense of pure feeling and passion inspired by classic pop records of the early ‘80s, E·MO·TION finds Jepsen conjuring up pop’s most thrilling paradoxes and delivering songs both carefree and introspective, tender and bold, sensitive and self-assured. “The one intention I had going into making this album was to take my time and create something I was really proud of—something that showed sides of me that I hadn’t ever revealed in my music before,” Jepsen says. carlyraemusic.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets

SOJA with special guests New Kingston
“I want to speak for people who don’t have microphones,” Jacob Hemphill says. “Our goal as a band is to stick up for the human race. We see the world and we try to make it better in the limited time we have here.” This is the philosophy behind SOJA’s music, a simple statement that has driven the Grammy Nominated D.C. area band, who blend reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, Latin, rock and hip-hop. Originally formed by a group of friends while still in middle school and has built a massive, dedicated fanbase around the world since. In the years following, SOJA has sold more than 200,000 albums, headlined shows in nearly 30 countries around the world, generated over 4 million Facebook fans, and over 120 million YouTube views. The band has toured with Dave Matthews Band, Incubus, 311 and appeared at major festivals including Bonnaroo where they attract an almost Grateful Dead-like international fan base along the way, with caravans of diehards following them from city to city. After the release of their 2012 album Strength To Survive, the musicians started writing material for what would become their fifth full-length album, “Amid the Noise and Haste.” sojamusic.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony
Andy Mineo - Uncomfortable Tour Featuring GAWVI and Narrated by Propaganda
Whether he’s on stage bringing an audience to its feet with his riveting performance or off stage fielding interview questions with a potent combination of intellect and wit, it’s obvious Andy Mineo is a born communicator and hip hop music is his instrument for reaching the masses. “It is absolutely undeniable that hip hop is becoming the universal language,” Mineo says expressing an unbridled enthusiasm for his artistic vehicle. “It’s so influential because you are able to say so much in a short period of time. The essence of hip hop is the boldness of it so you’re able to be exactly who you are. You are able to say exactly what you want. You represent exactly what is deepest and dearest to you and people respond to that. They respond to that realness.” andymineo.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets
