SECOND ANNUAL MONSTER ENERGY ROCK ALLEGIANCE
–THE NORTHEAST’S BIGGEST ROCK EXPERIENCE–
BUILDS ON RECORD-SETTING FIRST YEAR BY EXPANDING TO TWO DAYS
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 AND SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
The second annual Monster Energy Rock Allegiance built on its record-setting first year success as the Northeast’s biggest rock experience and ZTP Magazine was there taking it all in.
Headliners Alice In Chains joined onstage at one point by The Cult’s Billy Duffy were only the capstone to an unforgettable weekend that included performances from Slayer, The Offspring, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle and many others. Other highlights included Pennsylvania’s own Crobot being joined onstage by Volbeat’s Rob Caggiano for “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer ” and Joey Belladonna of Anthrax joining Sevendust for “Face to Face.” Other highlights included the always entertaining Avatar, Ghost and Motionless in White. My personal highlight was meeting and chatting with both Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters playing in what Taylor called “The Ultimate Wedding Cover Band” Chevy Metal.
With mouth-watering, Philly-centric Gourmet Man Food, regional and national craft beer, band meet-and-greets, autograph signings, and more, fans from around the country and spanning generations were fully immersed in rock and roll culture. Although I couldn’t find some of the breweries listed in the advance information the ones I did find were great and I would me remiss in not mentioning local restaurant Lo Spiedo that we visited twice, The had great food, and a wide selection of craft brews to go along with it but their staff and management were amazing!
93.3 WMMR captured the excitement of Monster Energy Rock Allegiance with live broadcasts from the event on both Saturday and Sunday and SiriusXM Octane and Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin was also on hand and had this to say
“It was my first Rock Allegiance experience, and I have to say it’s already one of my favs! I love hanging out with all the diehard East Coast hard rockin’ friends who all weekend were soaking up the sick music, killer food, delicious beers, great weather, and amazing vibes. Everyone I talked to was beyond stoked to be there, bands and fans! I’m ready for this sucker again next year, c’mon!”
