Budweiser, Live Nation and Haymon Events announced the return of Budweiser Superfest, which begins August 5 for an 18-city tour. The 2010 tour will feature an all-star lineup including Anthony Hamilton, Kem, Jaheim, Raheem DeVaughn, Abraham McDonald and Hal Linton, with more to be announced.
During its more than two decade run, the Budweiser Superfest featured some of the stars, such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, TLC, Parliament, Luther Vandross and many other musical legends.
“The return of the historic Budweiser Superfest concert series builds on our existing relationship with Budweiser and Anheuser-Busch,” said Russell Wallach, President, Live Nation Network. ”We expect to carry on that legacy with a stellar line up of artists already confirmed for the 2010 return.”
Budweiser Superfest will travel through a mix of amphitheaters and arenas starting with Cleveland’s Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at Tower City and continuing through the September 5th concert at Dallas’ Superpages.com Center. Tickets for shows in Charlotte, New Orleans and Memphis go on sale on July 17. Tickets for all other markets are available now at LiveNation.com.
Along with the Budweiser Superfest revival, Budweiser is searching for local talent (21+) in select Superfest cities to compete in its “Battle for the Crown” promotion. Winners of each “Battle for the Crown” competition will earn a chance to be the opening act for the local concert, show tickets, cash and other prizes in select markets. Competitions will take place in the weeks prior to each concert. Go to www.battleforthecrown.com to enter.
