Rock 105 Has 20th Birthday Celebration Oct. 6

Thursday, August 8, 2019

Entercom Chattanooga station Rock 105 (WRXR-FM) is turning 20 and celebrating with a co-headline rock event. It will be held Oct. 6 at The Signal with rockers Theory of a Deadman and the voice of Creed- Scott Stapp along with Spirit Animal and Mighty Sideshow.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at TheSignalTN.com.

Review for Theory of a Deadman: 

With their sixth studio album, Wake Up Call, Theory hit the reset button, diving into a new sound, a new approach, even a new location. The more melodic, intimate style that defines the project is a bold move for one of the leading rock bands in the world. Since forming in British Columbia in 2001, Theory of a Deadman—Connolly, guitarist Dave Brenner, bassist Dean Back, and drummer Joey Dandeneu—have placed nine songs in the Top 10 on rock charts, including the Number One hits “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife,” “So Happy” and “Angel.”

Review for Scott Stapp: 

Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified The Great Divide (2005) and Proof of Life (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide.” His next solo venture reflects a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting. With new single “Purpose For Pain,” one of rock’s biggest names roars back to the scene with a driving, introspective new single. It is the first song from Scott Stapp’s newest album, The Space Between the Shadows. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light. Scott’s evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.

“What better way to celebrate Rock 105’s 20th birthday bash than by rocking out with our friends," said Sean Stewart, Rock 1-5 program director. "We’re excited to bring together great artists and true music fans for a great event."
