It's the most wonderful time of year, and fans of rock are ready to rejoice! Yes, everyone is excited
that Christmas is here once again to fill their stockings with good cheer, but music fans are even more excited because if
it's Christmastime that can mean only one thing: the concert event of the season, The X103.9 Merry Meltdown. Every year, the
Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, California is transformed into a winter wonderland of the hottest rockers in the business,
and fans come out in droves to see their favorite stars.
This year's event will be held on December 14th and feature
such acts as the Stone Temple Pilots, Korn, Chester Bennington and more. It's a great opportunity for fans to see a multitude
of their favorite artists hit the stage and put on a show that nobody in attendance will ever forget. Merry Meltdown is here
to bring the cheer, but these aren't some carolers dripping with glee and holly. No, these are some seriously hard rockers
ready to take the stage to blow the doors off the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario and give audiences a dose of hard rock this
holiday season. There aren't any reindeer or cookies at the Merry Meltdown, but there is definitely a present under the tree,
and that present is definitely a rock concert unlike any other.
The Merry Meltdown has features
some incredible hard rock acts over the years, and this year should be no different. While there may not be a white hot star
beaming from above the Citizens Bank Arena beckoning the magi, there are red hot rock stars set to take the stage that will
have fans from near and far coming to see their favorite rock icons. Last year, POD, Switchfoot, Lit and many more rock demigods
lit up the stage in a fiery blaze of glory that rocked the house and gave fans an unprecedented show. This year's Merry Meltdown
promises to be even bigger and better, and you won't want to miss out.The 2013 lineup features such acts as Stone Temple Pilots,
who featured a new lead singer in former Linkin Park crooner Chad Bennington, a resurgent Korn with a new album under the
belts, Sick Puppies and more. Local bands in the Ontario area also have a shot to perform at the festival, a very cool little
bonus for those that make it out for the show. It's a great opportunity to see some bands that you know and love, and maybe
even a few that will expose you to some new music that you'll come to appreciate.
something simply incredible about seeing a concert live and in person that keeps people coming back for more whenever one
of their favorite artists comes to town. When you see a fantastic musical act hit the stage in the same location that you're
in, there's a magnetism that occurs that you can't duplicate anywhere else. Get out to see one of this fantastic show live
and in person so you can experience music the way it's supposed to be experienced. Nothing compares to seeing it done live,
so make sure to check out this event and prepare for a great time filled with music and fun.
People have been coming
together to enjoy live music in cultures around the world for a countless number of years. If you think about it, live music
is the true foundation of music itself, and really the art's purest form. It can be an epic experience to see an artist in
a huge amphitheater with thousands upon thousands of screaming fans surrounding you, or it can be an intimate experience in
a smaller venue in which you can really connect with everyone in the building. A festival featuring a variety of talented
artists is a whole different experience in itself. Either way, seeing a concert live and in person always amounts to more
than just listening to music. When you head out to see a creative artist hit the stage at a fantastic concert venue, you're
sure to become enveloped by the entire experience of seeing a musical act that you know and love while surrounded by fellow
adoring fans that have at least that one thing in common. And often times, when it comes to music, that one thing is enough
to bring people together.
