This is tough to explain, and I honestly haven't figured out all the details yet, but apparently there's something called the "Grid Iron Bash" that's coming to a University near you. It appears to be a combination of Football Practice, a Fan Zone, A Contest of some sort, and a badass concert.
MSL Sports and Entertainment today announced that simultaneous live performances by Fergie, Kelly Clarkson, ZZ Top, Maroon 5, Dwight Yoakam and a slate of other renowned artists will highlight the agenda at about 20 Division I universities nationwide on April 18 for the inaugural Gridiron Bash(TM), timed for the evening before Spring Games. Gridiron Bash(TM), the Ultimate Fan Competition(TM), will be the largest single-day sports and entertainment event ever to take place on college campuses.Do college kids even know who Dwight Yoakam is? And Fergie??? Come on. I went to a College that put on a Hoobastank concert that sold out in 10 minutes, but I'm pretty sure we'd have booed Fergie off the stage.
MSL Sports and Entertainment is in final discussions with Good Charlotte, OAR, Counting Crows, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, and Montgomery Gentry. Other artists including, Hank Williams Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey, Steve Miller Band, Goo Goo Dolls, 3 Doors Down and Alan Jackson also are being pursued.
If you go to one of these schools.....Texas A&M, Tennessee, Army, Rutgers, Kansas State, WVU, Penn State, Colorado, Penn State, University of Iowa, Arizona State, Maryland, South Carolina, Washington, Kentucky, University of Texas at El Paso, BYU, Auburn, Alabama and Boston College.....keep your fingers crossed for Journey!
