I do hate reposting press releases - but charities pull at my heart strings and this one is for a GREAT cause: to prevent child abduction. If you like Halestorm, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed or Stone Sour read on:
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is proud to announce the first-ever eBay Charity Ticket Auction in support of Child Find of America, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction. Beginning Sunday, August 1, 2010 and running for 10 days, fans can bid on eBay for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive two VIP tickets to the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival. In addition, the top bidder and their guest will watch their favorite band perform from the best seats in the house: ONSTAGE!

The all-day outdoor UPROAR Festival, drawing as many as 10,000 to 15,000 fans per event, will make stops in 35 US and Canadian cities coast-to-coast, beginning on August 17, 2010 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and concluding October 4, 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Each festival date features eight of the biggest names in active rock music performing on two stages, as well as other attractions, including a concourse midway filled with vendors and activities. Projected to be one of the most successful, audacious and not-to-be-missed concert events of 2010, The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will feature multi-platinum co-headliners Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold, along with Stone Sour and Halestorm. The potent rock lineup for the touring music and lifestyle jaunt also features performances from Jägermeister Second Stage headliners Hellyeah, as well as Airbourne, Hail The Villain, New Medicine and the local Jägermeister-sponsored opener in each city. (Note: Airbourne will not be performing on the Canadian dates.)
