KIX, Legendary 80s Rock Outfit, to Headline Saturday Night at Gettysburg Bike Week 2016

GBW Adds Energetic Live Music Act for 16th Anniversary Rally

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (February 2, 2016) – Gettysburg Bike Week’s slate of musical entertainment for 2016 just got better–GBW has announced that platinum-selling 80s-rock favorite KIX will headline the Saturday night slot at this year’s rally.

Formed in the late seventies, KIX achieved worldwide stardom during the heyday of 80s metal, playing arena rock shows with the likes of Aerosmith, KISS, White Snake, Ratt and Tesla. Their unique blend of metal, pop and hard rock made tunes like “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” “Midnight Dynamite” and “Contrary Mary” crowd favorites the world over. Enjoying a resurgence in popularity since the early 2000s, KIX has been playing festivals, rock cruises and bike rallies to unmitigated success, building on a cult following that comes out in droves whenever they play live.

“We’re thrilled to have a band known for lights-out live shows for Gettysburg Bike Week 2016,” says event coordinator Kelly Shue. “They delivered back in the day, and they’ve only gotten better since.”

Held exclusively at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Gettysburg Bike Week is entering its sixteenth year of operation. This year’s rally is sure to be one of the best, with KIX joining the likes of the Marshall Tucker Band and Mustang Sally on the main stage as a big part of an all-star musical lineup, as well as tried-and-true motorcycle entertainment staples like bike shows, bike games, bike build offs, and wet T-shirt and bikini contests. Accommodations are convenient and easy, with Gettysburg Bike Week’s official lodging sponsor, the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center, right next door.

And, of course no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg.
