Carolina Uprising Tickets
Carolina Uprising tour dates
Not to be confused with the heavy metal weekender known as Carolina Rebellion, Carolina Uprising is instead a one-day celebration of the best that Southern rock culture has to offer. As its inaugural headliner, Charlie Daniels, said, "It's not every day that you can come home and jam in the comfort of your own backyard in the Carolina sunshine."
Carolina Uprising background
Carolina Uprising tickets first well on sale in 2017 for its inaugural event at Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre. Named after its former mayor, Koka Booth, the region's number one entertainment venue welcomed seven different acts from the Southern rock genre to its stage for a full day of rollicking good music.

In the year that he celebrated his 81st birthday, Charlie Daniels proved he is still a force to be reckoned with in a headline slot alongside his regular backing band. The Southern rock legend enjoyed an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016, shortly after releasing his 32nd studio effort, Night Hawk.
Another veteran Southern rock outfit, The Marshall Tucker Band, also joined Daniels at the top of the bill. Best known for their 1977 chart smash, "Heard It in a Love Song," the ever-changing line-up continue to be a fixture on the live circuit, performing up to 200 shows a year.
Renowned for their US Top 40 hits "There Goes Another Love Song" and ("Ghost) Riders in the Sky," The Outlaws are still going strong a full half-century after they formed in Tampa, Florida. Fronted by Henry Paul, the band remain a popular touring act and in 2016 released their fifth live album, Legacy.
Pure Prairie League formed way back in 1965 but are still performing up to 100 shows a year, albeit with an entirely new line-up. Named after a reference in the Errol Flynn cowboy film Dodge City, the country rock veterans achieved their biggest success in the late 70s/early 80s with US Top 40 hits "Let Me Love You Tonight" and "Still Right Here In My Heart."
Formed from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield, Poco helped push West Coast country rock into the mainstream with their 1969 debut album, Pickin' Up the Pieces. One of the genre's ultimate survivors, the band enjoyed an induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and continue to tour intermittently across the US.
Featuring two former members of the US military, Texas-based country outfit Scooter Brown Band and North Carolina natives Super Grit Cowboy Band completed the line-up.
