Beliebe it or Not, the Beiber is Hitting Buffalo Chip, Billed as a Bad Ass*
*No, no, not really. The Buffalo Chip had a tremendous laugh at the expense of expectant readers when it sent out a band announcement on April 1st, billing Justin Bieber as the headliner for the Sturgis Bike Rally this coming season.
The Chip later released the lineup of legitimate acts that will be performing at this year’s much-anticipated 75th anniversary celebration including John Fogerty, Godsmack, and Styx - acts far more likely to resonate with the assembled crowd than the teen-hearthrob turned trouble magnet.
Although, who knows. There may be some Beliebers in the Sturgis crowd after all. No judgment, folks. No judgment.
From the Buffalo Chip website: “In addition to world-class main stage acts, many other performers will entertain crowds throughout the festival on the Buffalo Chip’s six showcase stages. Bands confirmed for these stages include Jimmy Bratcher and Japan’s favorite biker band, MMS.
“The concert series during the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling will begin on Friday, July 31 and run through Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015. The campground will open for camping on July 3, 2015.
“The Buffalo Chip is the original site for Sturgis Rally concerts and is well known as the center of the rally due to the its long history of delivering the music industry’s biggest names and Best Party Anywhere.
“Concerts are free with camping. Passes for the momentous 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2015 may be purchased by calling 605-347-9000 or visiting www.buffalochip.com.”
