STIMULATE THIS! Tour with Staind, Shinedown, Chevelle and Halestorm

Staind, Shinedown, Chevelle and Halestorm will be teaming up this summer for the “Stimulate This!” tour, a four-band bill designed to offer fans maximum value at a minimal price.

Making its way across the U.S. beginning July 1 and extending through early September, the “Stimulate This!” tour will hit more than 40 U.S. markets, including some of the hardest hit by the recession.  In a show of solidarity for their fans, the four bands have worked closely with the concert promoters to create a package of exceptional value for ticket buyers.  Through their collective efforts, they’ve been able to maintain modest base ticket prices that remain mostly under $40 each – half the cost of comparable multi-band summer tour packages – with some venues offering lawn seats for less than $10.  Additionally, each tour stop will include special promotions for ticket holders that will vary from market to market, but could include discounts on concessions at the venue during the show, store discounts at local retailers, and online rebates for band merchandise to name a few.

Inspired by the bands’ efforts to craft a cost-efficient tour for their fans during these hard times, Atlantic Records will give away a pair of tickets to five fans in every market who pose the best reason as to why they need a free night of rock.  Fans can send their stories and enter the contest through Atlantic Records’ website, http://www.atlanticrecords.com.  More details will be available soon on the website.

“Wall Street got its bailout; now it’s time for rock fans to get theirs,” said Staind frontman Aaron Lewis.  “This summer, we want to give our fans one night where they can forget about everything else and experience a great rock show.”

“We’ve always said that we, as a band, only answer to one boss…and that’s everyone in the audience,” offers Shinedown’s Brent Smith.  “It’s our job…our privilege to offer our fans an escape.  Teaming up with these other great bands, we’re doing what we can to help lift everyone’s spirits in these tough times…the power of music can do that.”
