Rock the Red relocated

Posted By on Mon, Sep 3, 2012 at 2:56 PM

Instead of the devil going down to Bojangles Coliseum, Rock the Red will be heading down to the Hunter Farm in Weddington on Sept. 5 — but "the devil" is no longer invited.

Former headliners the Charlie Daniels Band and Travis Tritt have been scrapped and the relocated event will now feature the "who?"-worthy, $5 lineup of Kernersville's Chris Lane Band, Tennessee country crooner Troy Cook Jr. and self-proclaimed right-wing extremist Lisa Mei. Speakers will include the outspoken Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

While rumors of poor ticket sales and marketing were to blame for the original cancellation, it was more likely a lack of enthusiasm for a less-than-stellar lineup... which just received a downgrade. Is this the best music Republicans can come up with to drum up excitement? Probably.
