Finger Eleven to headline McDonald’s Rock and Race Concert in JuneShare
The McDonald’s Rock and Race Concert to feature Finger Eleven at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday, June 15.
Burlington, Ontario, Canada’s own Finger Eleven will headline the free and always popular post-race concert in Lot 10. The show will begin shortly after the Alliance Truck Parts 250 Nationwide Series race.
The concert is free to anyone with an Alliance Truck Parts 250 race ticket, an infield wristband or an APEX wristband.
Tony Lucca from the popular television show “The Voice” will open the concert and hand it off to Finger Eleven.
“We are excited to bring Finger Eleven to MIS in June,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “The McDonald’s Rock and Race Concert will be a great way to conclude the Alliance Truck Parts 250 Nationwide Series race on Saturday. We try to feature different kinds of music for our fans and we are excited to bring back rock music this year with Finger Eleven.”
Rock music’s Finger Eleven earned their confidence album by album, tour by tour and song by song. The band has worked the road non-stop since 1998 and has released successful albums such as their debut Tip and follow-up, The Greyest of Blue Skies. By the time the band released its third album, self-titled album, Finger Eleven had built a successful career. The band has produced such songs as “Them vs. You vs. Me,” “Paralyzer” and “One Thing.”
Lucca captured America’s hearts this year as the Team Adam finalist on NBC’s hit TV show “The Voice.” Lucca’s cover of Hugo’s version of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” reacted strongly, propelling Lucca to the No. 3 spot on iTunes Overall Singles sales chart and No. 1 on iTunes Rock Singles chart. Additionally, Lucca’s duet of “Yesterday” by The Beatles with coach Adam Levine (Maroon 5) landed Top 5 on iTunes Overall and Pop Singles sales charts.
In 2011, Lucca appeared as himself on NBC’s “Parenthood” performing his song “Like Love.” His songs have been featured on TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Brothers & Sisters,” “Shark,” and “Felicity” and in Kevin Costner’s feature “Open Range.”
The Alliance Truck Parts 250 is at 2:15 p.m. The concert will begin shortly after the checkered flag that afternoon.
