The initial dates for the The 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival were announced early this morning. Still waiting on the NorthWest dates...

Today was just the first batch of cities/dates/and venues. According to the Rockstar Uproar Facebook page more will be announced on June 29th. With todays announcement the tour hits Kansas City Missouri on September 24th, and then San Diego on October 9th. You can bet that the NorthWest will be included somewhere around the Kansas City and San Diego dates.

The 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival will once again feature Avenged Sevenfold as the headliner. The full list of bands was announced about a month ago.

There are a few other 'festival' type shows that are coming through the Northwest in August like PDX Rockfest, Rock Hard in the Park, and Pain in the Grass. Not to mention the Mayhem Fest and the Soundgarden show both coming up in July. Plus, although the lineup is set, the dates/cities/venues are still TBA for the 2011 Carnival of Madness. Warped Tour is coming too...man, lots of good shows and bands! Which are you most excited to attend?
