MIS announces summer concertsShare
Sick Puppies and Saving Abel headline an amazing concert lineup for Michigan International Speedway’s Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 weekend, June 12 and 13.
Australian alternative rock trio Sick Puppies will headline the Saturday night concert in the New Holland Fan Plaza on June 12. The performance on the LifeLock stage will begin shortly after the VFW 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
Sick Puppies is supporting its third album, the appropriately named “Tri-Polar,” which debuted at No. 31 on The Billboard 200 album chart. The first single, “You’re Going Down,” was used by World Wrestling Entertainment as the official theme song for the pay-per-view event “Extreme Rules 2009.” The group has been touring with Nickelback and Shinedown this summer.
“Our spirit comes together when we're on-stage," says bass player Emma Anzai. “When we get ready to go out on stage, we're like gladiators entering the arena.”
Mark Goodwin, drummer, added: “I can't wait to play at Michigan International Speedway," he said. “If there's anything that people should know, it's that we're all about playing live.”
And in an MIS first, the track presents a post-race concert on Sunday, June 13. Southern rock band Saving Abel will perform following the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400. The concert will begin about 30 minutes following the checkered flag of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, also on the LifeLock stage in the New Holland Fan Plaza.
“We’re excited to bring two free concerts to our guests during the June race weekend —one on Saturday and one on Sunday,” speedway President Roger Curtis said. “This is a first for us to try a Sunday concert post-race and I can’t think of a better way to wind down the June event and get ready for August than with Saving Abel.”
Saving Abel will be at MIS in June to support its sophomore album “Miss America” in stores June 8. The group is doing a major ticket promotion to bring VIP fans to the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400. Fans can register to win a trip to MIS in June by logging onto www.savingabel.com.
Along with the post-race concert, the band will also play a couple of acoustic songs in Budweiser Acceleration, the track’s fan hospitality club. Tickets for the Budweiser Acceleration Club are on sale.
Saving Abel released its self-titled debut album in 2008. Known for such hits as “Addicted,” “18 Days” and “Drowning (Face Down),” Saving Abel has also been signed to play during the August 13-15 Show Me the CARFAX Weekend at MIS. The popular Saturday night concert in Lot 10 has always been a crowd staple and fan favorite at MIS. The Saving Abel concert will take place after the Nationwide Series CARFAX 250 race on August 14.
Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.
