Melodic Rock Superstars to Perform in Historic Concert

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Since January 1997,
Australian Andrew McNeice has maintained a website
(http://www.melodicrock.com) that champions a style of Rock music that
commands a huge following throughout the world, Melodic Rock. Epitomized by
bands such as Survivor, Journey, Night Ranger, and Styx, the genre is
distinguished by unforgettable and emotional songwriting supported by
inventive and orchestral musicianship. The website takes millions of hits
and supports 200,000 monthly unique visitors.
Since its beginnings in the 80's, the American Midwest has been the
epicenter of Melodic Rock, and it is in South Bend, Indiana that McNeice
has chosen to bring together a blockbuster cast to celebrate the tenth
anniversary of melodicrock.com, in a one-night only concert. WAOR-FM of
Niles, Michigan is co-sponsor of the event.

Performing Arts Center) will feature "Scrap Metal" an all-star group
comprising Kelly Keagy from Night Ranger ("Sister Christian"), Gunnar and
Matthew Nelson of Nelson ("Love And Affection"), Mark Slaughter of
Slaughter ("Up All Night") and Eric Martin from Mr. Big ("To Be With You").
Joining that crew are very special guests Jim Peterik and Jimi Jamison,
both formerly of Survivor ("Eye Of The Tiger"), Jack Blades, bandmate of
Kelly Keagy in Night Ranger and member of Damn Yankees, and Joe Lynn Turner
of Rainbow and Deep Purple.
"Scrap Metal's" set will consist of the top hits made famous by the
members of the band. This setting also allows for the unique opportunity to
hear these great singers and musicians interact with each other in ways
that have never been previously presented.

Average. Still haven't made break even yet. That's certainly a stress.

How many more tickets (approximately) do you need to "break even"? I, like many on the site, thought this would sell out. We still have some time and my hopes are for the best.

Merchandise sales and the raffles should help.

Sorry for the stress, bro...but don't worry....the Notre Dame kids will need something to do that day 'cause it's an away game for the Irish. It'll be late sales...but they'll come. Try not to stress too much. :-)

Sorry bro. I'll be there though, for better or worse. :)


You know...if you could get Paul Gilbert and Billy Sheehan to show up, i'll bet there'd be no problems selling the rest. :lol: You know, the same day Chinese Democracy comes out. :roll:
