“ROCK CON, the first annual Weekend Of 100 Rock Stars” is set to take place at the Sheraton Meadowlands Hotel & Conference Center on the weekend of July 30 – August 1 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), 2010.
This “fan-oriented rock & roll celebrity show” is like no other today to say-the-least. Usually, at a celebrity show, the invited guests attending number 5-10 or 20-50 at the most – never 100 stars all at the same time! The show models itself off of Nashville’s Country Music “original fan fairs” several days each year consisting of fan-driven concerts, autograph signings, photos, product giveaways and meet-and-greets.
In a similar fashion, fans attending the “Weekend Of a 100 Rock Stars” will be able to talk directly to, obtain signed autographs from and meet some of their favorite rock and media personalities on common ground. Those attending the three-day event can also browse through the world’s largest rock & roll music and memorabilia marketplace – over 50 years of rock history. Thousands of fans of all ages are expected to attend.
According to producers, “an event of this magnitude is long-overdue. Country artists have their FanFair, there’s ComicCon and baseball players and actors all have shows where they could meet their fans, but this will be the first time Rock & Rollers and music people will get together in such a unique environment.”
Although the “Weekend Of A 100 Rock (And Media) Stars” is months away, some very special guests of honor confirmed to appear include current and former members of such famed rock bands as:
The Hollies (2010 Rock HOF inductees), The Cars, The Animals (1994 Rock HOF inductees), Meatloaf, Vanilla Fudge, Tommy James & The Shondells, The Yardbirds (1992 Rock HOF inductees), The Stories. Spanky & Our Gang, The Bay City Rollers, Utopia, and many others.
Also, expect to see radio and TV music personalities including legendary television DJ/MC Clay Cole, the only host to have both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones ion the same broadcast.
Producers are quick to point out that the planning has only just begun and “it’s already having a snowball effect – musicians, composers and rock stars have started calling us to be part of the weekend celebration.”
A comprehensive listing of all the “100 special guests” will be announced shortly.
Tickets go on sale April 15th through the website www.NationalRockCon.com.
