MULTI-PLATINUM ROCK BAND THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS TO HEADLINE MUSIC STAGE AT BRECKENRIDGE'S WINTER DEW TOUR EVENT ON FRIDAY DEC. 19
Hip Hop Duo, and Boulder Product, 3OH!3 to Kick Off the Free Show at 7pm
NEW YORK – December 3, 2008 – The Winter Dew Tour today announced that multi-platinum rock band The All-American Rejects will headline and hip hop duo 3OH!3 will kick off the night at the Verizon Wireless music stage inside the Riverwalk Amphitheatre on Friday, Dec. 19, at the first stop of the Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado.
The pop, rock band The All-American Rejects was first thrust into the limelight with their hit song "Swing Swing" released in 2002 on their self-titled debut album and then hit superstardom with the smash hit "Move Along" off their 2nd album, of the same name, in 2005. The band's third album, When the World Comes Down, will be released on December 16. The four-member band, and friends from Oklahoma, recorded their latest album with the desire to show their fans where they are as people, as well as artists.
3OH!3, is comprised of Boulder, Colorado natives Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte. The pair enjoys a cult-like local following and is renowned for their hip hop beats mixed with electronic rhythms and 80's pop influence. Their live shows are known for hard-edge beats and explosive dancing.
"Excited to be kicking off the Winter Dew Tour this year, these athletes are the best at what they do and we are looking forward to being a part of it," said Tyson Ritter from The All-American Rejects.
"We love performing in our home state and in front of our hard core fans," said Nathaniel Motte from 3OH!3. "This is the biggest winter sports event in Denver this year so fired up about playing."
All music from the Verizon Wireless music stage is free to the general public including the Friday night concert with The All-American Rejects and 3OH!3.
