Evansville, IN – Thursday night was rocking in downtown Evansville with Godsmack and special guest Volbeat. Neither bands are new to the Tri-State Area, Godsmack co-headlined with Staind in 2012 and Volbeat headlined a tour in 2015 at the Ford Center.
In 2019 Ford Center tripled the amount of shows in the active rock genre that are making stops in Evansville. “With the community supporting these active rock bands, promoters and the bands are putting Evansville on their tour more and more,”stated Ford Center’s Executive Director, Scott Schoenike. Breaking Benjamin brought their tour one month ago, and Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson are bringing their “Hell Never Dies 2019” tour to Ford Center in July.
Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown tried out a co-headlining concert here in Evansville in 2016 and because of the success here, they turned the co-headlining concert into a full tour. In 2018 Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown returned to Ford Center and the community was still showing support for active rock concerts. Breaking Benjamin returned as the headliner a little over a year after opening for Avenged Sevenfold in 2017.
Ford Center continues an active event season with upcoming shows that include WWE LIVE – May 5, Jason Aldean – May 9 and Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson – July 14.
