The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival main stage will feature performances from multiplatinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach, along with breaking band Adelitas Way. In addition, the Ernie Ball Stage and Jägermeister Stage in the festival area will include performances from multiplatinum headliner P.O.D., as well as up-and-coming artists Deuce, Fozzy, Redlight King, Mindset Evolution (winner of the 2011 UPROAR Battle Of The Bands), In This Moment, Thousand Foot Krutch, Candlelight Red and a local Battle Of The Bands winner.

***UPDATE***

Papa Roach has been forced to withdraw from the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has been diagnosed with a nodule on his left vocal cord, and at the advice of his physician he will undergo corrective surgery to remove the nodule and prevent further damage.

“It’s no secret that I’ve been having issues with my voice lately. I was hoping to be able to go out there and kill it on this tour by resting and doing vocal exercises, but my voice has just gone out on me. I hate to let our fans down, but unfortunately surgery is the only way to fix it,” Shaddix said. “The last thing we want to do is give our fans less than 100% every night. We know they’ll understand and we’ll be back better than ever.”

“It was amazing having Papa Roach on the road with us for the first few UPROAR shows. We’re disappointed that they can’t continue for the rest of the tour, but Jacoby’s health is the priority and we wish him a speedy recovery,” says Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival co-producer John Oakes.

Beginning Friday, August 24, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival main stage schedule will be adjusted to allow longer performances from Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Adelitas Way.

Tickets For Second Leg with Escape the Fate On Sale This Weekend

UPDATE – March 16, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA – Following the announcement last week of their headlining “Raid the Nation” Tour, Papa Roach have announced a 2nd leg of the tour. With the first leg beginning on April 25th in Anaheim, CA with support from Finger Eleven and Pop Evil, the band will be beginning their 2nd leg on May 12th in Kearney, NE with support from Escape the Fate and Pop Evil (please see below for tour dates). Papa Roach will perform hits including the current single “Burn,” which moved Top 5 this week on the active rock radio chart. Tickets for the 1st leg with Finger Eleven are on sale now and the second leg with Escape the Fate goes on sale this weekend at www.paparoach.com.

Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix says, “We’re super stoked to share the stage with two great rock bands.  We’ve been wanting to tour with Escape the Fate for a while and we were finally able to put it together so here we go.  Let’s raid the nation bitches.”

As the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours and festivals worldwide in recent years, Papa Roach has been dubbed “this generation’s great live rock band” by fans and critics across the globe and has become known for their electrifying and explosive live shows.

With their feet firmly planted in over 10 years of multi-format success, Papa Roach’sTime For Annihilation…On the Record and On the Road (Released August 31st via Eleven Seven Music) debuted as the #1 Independent Rock, #23 Top 200, #4 Hard Rock and #5 Alternative Album on Billboard’s charts.  The New York Post proclaimed “Papa’s On Fire” and hailed Time For Annihilation…On The Record and On The Road as one of the “most appealing concept albums of the year.”  The album’s lead single, “Kick in the Teeth” remained in the Top 10 at the Active Rock radio format for over 4-weeks straight. The album is a unique hybrid listening experience, which showcases live renditions of past hits as well as five new studio tracks produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus).

With the release of this record, the band continued their long-term commitment to WhyHunger, raising funds and awareness for hunger and homelessness worldwide.  The band included a hidden track on the record, a first in philanthropy, to encourage fans to text to donate as they do live in concert.  In addition, the band visited the Los Angeles Mission (Los Angeles, CA) and the Yorkville Common Pantry (New York, NY) food banks as volunteers to celebrate their album release and continued partnership with WhyHunger.
