Promoter Jade Presents has announced that rock band Halestorm will play the Bluestem Amphitheater in Moorhead with bands Stone Temple Pilots and Black Stone Cherry on Saturday, May 28, 2022. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4th.
Self-doubt and depression clawed at the edges of Lzzy Hale’s mind when it came time to pen Halestorm’s fourth album, a follow-up to 2015’s “Into The Wild Life”. The musician didn’t feel like she was where she needed to be, both professionally and personally. When she and her bandmates, Arejay Hale, Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith, began writing, Hale wasn’t even sure who she was. The band began writing, but the first batch of songs didn’t feel quite right, so Halestorm scrapped it and started over. And in the end, “Vicious” represents Halestorm’s most personal and most inventive album, a deeply lived-with collection of songs teaming with genuine heart and soul.
The band scored a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013, and Hale was named the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in 2016. Both “Halestorm” and “The Strange Case of…” were certified Gold, further evidencing Halestorm’s massively supportive fanbase. Halestorm have also made history: “Love Bites (So Do I),” the hit single from “The Strange Case of…” ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio in the U.S., making Halestorm the first-ever female-fronted group to earn the top spot on the format.
Stone Temple Pilots
Stone Temple Pilots is an American rock band from San Diego, Calif., that originally consisted of Scott Weiland, brothers Dean DeLeo and Robert DeLeo, and Eric Kretz. New lead singer Jeff Gutt joined the band in 2017. Their unique brand of alternative metal is showcased in their arsenal of hits that include “Plush”, “Creep”, “Vasoline”, “Big Bang Baby”, “Lady Picture Show”, “Interstate Love Song”, “Between The Lines” and many more.
Black Stone Cherry
In the past two decades, Black Stone Cherry has set a new standard for Southern rock, revitalizing the tradition with burly riffs and stirring rock hooks. Since their formation in 2001, the four-piece brotherhood has remained Chris Robertson, vocals/guitar; Ben Wells, guitar/vocals; Jon Lawhon, bass/vocals; and John Fred Young, drums. Though not blood relatives, the guys grew up together, immersed in the culture of s***-kicking rock n’ roll. Young’s dad Richard, and his Uncle Fred, are two founding members of the iconic country-fried rock n’ roots band The Kentucky HeadHunters, and the high school-aged boys came up bashing away on their instruments in the group’s notorious Practice House, a 1940s bungalow. The four-piece band have blazed their own way in establishing a legacy. In the US, BSC’s last album, “Family Tree”, debuted at #8 in the Current Rock Albums, #4 at Current Hard Music, and #21 Top Current Album. The band’s three previous studio albums have cracked the Top 10 in the UK. “Family Tree” hit number 11 in Germany’s album charts, the highest position ever for the group in the country.
