NEW ANNUAL TOUR LAUNCHES THIS FALL – ‘CLASS OF 2009’

Platinum-selling Rock band Saving Abel will headline the inaugural CLASS OF 2009 TOUR, with Red, Pop Evil and Taddy Porter along for the ride. The excursion will get underway on October 27th in San Antonio, TX and continue until the end of the year. The first leg of dates will go on sale the weekend of August 28th, with additional blocks of performances to be announced shortly.

The concept behind this new annual tour is to bring together rock artists who have achieved substantial TOP TEN hits at radio in the current calendar year. Each year, an unsigned band, a.k.a. “The Freshman,” will be selected to open the show for the full tour, providing an opportunity that is nothing short of a launching pad. Each of the acts on the inaugural run outside of Taddy Porter (this year’s “Freshman”) is riding major airplay at radio, and could be touring as a headliner on their own. The submission process outlining eligibility for consideration to be “The Freshman” for the CLASS OF 2010 tour will be unveiled soon.

  1. If you love Saving Abel, then check out the lead guitarist Scott Bartlett’s new clothing lines designed for the rocker-at-heart. TATCO.
