Buckcherry have dropped off the September 3 Rock of Ages concert at Classic Park because they're opening for Nickelback on their current tour. (Christ, that sounds fun, doesn't it? Leave us a comment below about what you'd rather do than attend the Nickelback-Buckcherry show. We vote for having our balls punctured by that really long spear-like thing Neptune carries around.)
Alice Cooper is still headlining the show, but replacing Buckcherry is — and we're quoting the press release here — "the lead singers of Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Blues Image, and Iron Butterfly." Yay.
At least they're knocking back the ticket price on the concert. You can pick up tix for $24.50 and $39.50.
If you're actually upset that Buckcherry is no longer on the bill, you can get a full refund by sending your original ticket to the Classic Park Box Office no later than July 15, or you can bring it in person. If you already bought a ticket, go to the box office for a $10 refund.
The gates open at 5:30 p.m. Music starts at 7. Head-scratching over "the lead singers of Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Blues Image, and Iron Butterfly" begins at 7:05. —Michael Gallucci
