Zakk Wylde To Play National Anthem
Posted 05 May 2011 in Bob's Blog
We are very pleased to announce that the one and only Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society will perform his guitar version of the National Anthem to open the Monster Energy Main Stage at Rockfest 2011! Zakk will be accompanied by a Marine Corps Honor Guard presenting our Nation’s colors. Considering Rockfest takes place at The Liberty Memorial, the only WWI Memorial in the United States, nothing could be more fitting.
We’ve all known Zakk to be very generous and patriotic performer. He’s always given his time to support our troops, spend quality time with his fans, and participate in many charity events. Black Label Society is headlining the Jose Cuervo Second Stage with a set beginning at 9pm. The night before Rockfest, the band is playing in Denver. When we asked Zakk to perform the Star Spangled Banner, he did not hesitate to say they would leave Denver early, make sure to arrive in Kansas City on time, and that he was honored to pay tribute to our great country opening Rockfest.
Make sure you’re in front of the Monster Energy Main Stage just before 1:30 p.m. for this special performance. Thank you Zakk for always being an amazing performer and one hell of a good guy!
