Firehouse Confirmed for the Dakota Rock Fest


Recommended Posts

Press Release / Sioux Falls, S.D. (May 28, 2009) — Last year, multi-platinum Hard Rock band Firehouse was a crowd favorite and one of the biggest draws at Dakota Rock Fest. And they are back this year, joining Bret Michaels of Poison and Rock of Love fame to close out the festival.

Due to unforeseeable circumstances with White Lion, who unfortunately backed out of Dakota Rock Fest, one final slot was open, and Firehouse was the first band promoter Kevin Leisinger thought of to replace White Lion, considering their incredible showing last year.

"Dakota Rock Fest was one of the best gigs of 2008 for FireHouse", said guitarist Bill Leverty. "It is such a great place for a rock show. I can't wait to come back and play this festival again. The organizers are all first rate and really know how to throw a party. This should be another great time!"

Returning from last year to Dakota Rock Fest are Jukebox Zeroes, Escape (Journey tribute band), Appetite for Deception (GNR tribute band), Paisty Jenny, Bombay Black, Skid Row, and L.A. Guns. Coming to Dakota Rock Fest for the first time are Head East, April Wine, Draw the Line (Aerosmith tribute band), Tango Down, Far Cry, Talon, Enuff z'Nuff, Dokken, and the aforementioned Bret Michaels.

Tickets for Dakota Rock Fest are still available. If you purchase in advance, tickets are $20 for Friday, $35 for Saturday, or $50 for both days. If you buy the day of the show, tickets are $25 for Friday, $40 for Saturday and $60 for both days. VIP tickets can be purchased for $150, which covers both days and all you can eat and drink at the VIP tent. Tickets can be purchased at the Sioux Empire Fairgrounds or at any Ticketmaster outlet.

As I mentioned in the Dakota Rock Fest thread on this topic it sucks that White Lion isn't going to be there.

They were one of the main bands I was looking forward to seeing.

Yeah I know what you mean, I would really like to see them too. To bad they aren't going to be there...

 

But I saw Firehouse back on April 10th, and they put on one of the BEST performances that I've seen...they still sound great live.

I agree that Firehouse definately brings it when they perform but as Wes said, I'm disappointed that White Lion won't be there. :crying:

 

But a few beers from the beerbarrow and I will get over it :banana:

On the upside though Chad, you'll probably be feeling a bit better Friday morning than we will be. :tumbsup:

As for Firehouse playing, they definitely could have done a lot worse in getting a replacement band. Can anyone say "Fake Ritchie"?? :lol:

Nothing like spending a few hours staring at small print on cd spines with a hangover. :headbanger:

I brought the Mrs. to see Firehouse last summer at a local fair. She is not a rock fan or anything close to it but after the show even she said, "They were pretty cool!".

My wife didn't like this music at all when we got married 10 years ago but now she nows the words to most of the big songs and bands and I'd say Firehouse is probably one of her favs of this genre and she's seen them live about 4 times I think and always enjoys them.

    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
