GBW Stacks 2016 Entertainment Slate with Classic Metal
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania- Gettysburg Bike Week has
announced that heavy metal legends Quiet Riot will headline the opening
night of bike-week festivities for 2016.
Quiet Riot formed in the late 1970s and released two records in Japan before
their smash breakout LP Metal Health went multi-platinum in 1983. They
became the first heavy metal band with an album to reach number one on the
Billboard Hot 100 and are credited with helping the heavy metal genre
achieve mainstream acceptance. Known for such anthemic metal masterpieces as
“Metal Health” and “Cum On Feel the Noize” (a lively rendition of the Slade
classic), Quiet Riot has induced head banging for over thirty years.
Gettysburg Bike Week welcomes them to the S.S. Budweiser Stage on Thursday
night, along with Blizzard of Ozzy, the nation’s preeminent Ozzy Osbourne
and Black Sabbath tribute band–a nice touch, in that guitar phenom Randy
Rhoads, who tragically died in a plane crash in 1982, helped start Quiet
Riot before joining Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band.
“We’re proud to have an act with the stature of Quiet Riot kick things off
for Gettysburg Bike Week 2016,” says event coordinator Kelly Shue. “Classic
heavy metal and motorcycles–sounds like a winning combination to me.”
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 Quiet Riot joining the
likes of KIX, the Marshall Tucker Band and Mustang Sally on the Budweiser
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.
