It has been announced that the main stage for the Rockstar Uproar tour will be moved inside of the Gulf Coast Coliseum for the September 4th show in Biloxi, MS. A statement from WCPR regarding this decision can be found below. Personally, I commend them for taking action. I’ll be there and I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you!
WCPR and local officials have announced changes to the CPR FEST/UPROAR TOUR. Because of last week’s collapse of a large outdoor stage in Indiana a decision has been made to move the “main stage” portion of the concert indoors at the Coast Coliseum. According to officials, “Safety is our number one concern and until an investigation is complete into the cause of the Indiana tragedy we didn’t feel comfortable building what would have been the largest stage ever constructed in Biloxi.” The second stage, a much smaller and easily anchored venue will still be outside. So, it’ll be the best of both worlds! Gates will open at 1:30pm on September 4th with the outdoor stage featuring Sevendust. After an entire afternoon outdoors, everyone will move inside the Coliseum for the conclusion featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Seether, and Bullet for My Valentine. Officials also say there will be an added benefit of moving indoors; “Being indoors allows us to add more pyrotechnics and production value to the show. Things that weren’t allowed by regulations outside. Also, we like to emphasize that one ticket will get you into both the outside and inside portion of the show.”
INSIDE THE ARENA: On the RockStar Energy Drink Main Stage: AVENGED SEVENFOLD, Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet for My Valentine, and Escape the Fate.
OUTSIDE ON THE GROUNDS: On the Best Buy Music Gear Second Stage: Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying, Hell or Highwater.
