Buckcherry, Hellyeah Head Up Winter Jagermeister Tour
What goes better with a shot of Jäger than a molten riff? Liquor brand Jägermeister is pretty much synonymous with hard rock and metal, thanks to the successful and stocked-with-talent tours it sponsors. The winter 2011 edition of the Jägermeister Music Tour is the brand's 19th trek, and it's one of the tour's strongest lineups to date.
It will feature headliners Buckcherry supported by heavyweights Hellyeah and All That Remains on all 26 cross-country dates. Newcomers the Damned Things -- featuring members of Anthrax, Every Time I Die and Fall Out Boy -- will also appear.
Considering that Buckcherry recently wrapped up a run with Nickleback and are now touring with more metallic acts like Hellyeah and All That Remains, it's a testament to the band's ability to blanket genres with its good-time, vice-friendly rock.
Each date will also feature a local, Jäger-sponsored opener and DJ Brian Barr spinning between sets. It's always a party at the Jägermeister tour. Remember though, the brand promotes responsible rocking, so giveaways at each tour stop will comply with the local laws.
Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd said in a statement that "every night we're on stage we LOVE to host a party. We can't think of a better partner to do it with than Jägermeister."
The tour runs through Feb. 24.
