As soon as we hit publish on David Byrne & St. Vincent‘s NJ loving tour announcement, we received yet another double whammy this time from the rising culture of live performance excellence over at Monmouth University. The multi-purpose arena The Mac will play host to Seattle-grunge legends Soundgarden on May 14th which will be open and on sale to the non-student public. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1st at noon.
Also headed to The Mac is former Hootie & The Blowfish singer Darius Rucker who will have Rodney Atkins and Jana Kramer in tow. That show goes down on June 20th, extending past the traditional collegiate calendar. Sadly, if you’re looking for tickets for both shows you may want to look into paying a friend five bucks to run another computer as the on sale begins at the same time as Soundgarden’s.
Looks like the summer music schedule on the NJ shore is starting to take shape, and it’s looking like it may be a season for the ages. Here’s hoping I get to make these announcements as often as possible.
