Clyde schedules Sleeping With Sirens
Ludacris at Headwaters; punk show at Piere’s; local bands at Old Settlers’ Days; Jimmie Allen at Eclectic Room
The Clyde have also announced that Florida alternative rockers Sleeping With Sirens will be in town on Saturday, May 27.
Sleeping With Sirens are known primarily for the versatility of vocalist Kellin Quinn’s leggero tenor vocal range, along with the heavy sound used on their early work and the pop influences they have used later in their career. The veterans released their seventh full-length record, Complete Collapse, late last year.
Sleeping with Sirens will be joined by special guests Dayseeker and M.A.G.S.
Tickets for this show go on sale Friday, March 24, at 10 a.m. at clydetheatre.com, over the phone at (800) 514-3849 or in person at The Clyde box office and Sweetwater Sound.
Ludacris headlining Headwaters music festival
Grammy-winning rapper, actor, entertainer, and philanthropist Ludacris is set to perform at this year’s Fort Wayne Musical Festival at Headwaters Park on Friday, July 28.
Ludacris has broken down countless boundaries, destroyed stereotypes, kicked down the doors for rap music, and has complied eight No.1 hits.
The bill will also feature platinum-selling artists Juvenile and Chingy with few more surprise guests. In any event, get ready to shake your “Money Maker” Fort Wayne.
Tickets are on sale via Eventbrite.
