A Tapestry of Entertainment to Drape the Stage of Camden
Camden NJâ€”Whether you live in the Garden State, or you are in a neighboring territory, the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ is a venue that brings a wealth of entertainment possibilities. Camden draws music artists from all genres and therefore offers entertainment options to an expansive group of music lovers.
Not only does the Susquehanna Bank Center draw everyone from rock to country, it also attracts artists who embody multiple genres and influences, and therefore provide for the perfect â€śdate nightâ€ť or evening event for couples that normally have major disagreements when it comes to musical taste.
For example Mumford & Sons, who will be performing February 16 and 17, is an English folk rock band that emerged from West London in 2007. Rock, country and bluegrass music lovers have claimed Mumford & Sons as an instant favorite, as have the hipsters who pride themselves on liking the more â€śuniqueâ€ť. 2010 was the year in which the bandâ€™s popularity soared. In December of that year they made their first US television appearance and received 2 Grammy nominations, one for Best Rock Song and the other for Best New Artist. Their live performance from the awards show further propelled their popularity.
Mumford & Sons then went on to win the ARIA Music Award for most Popular International artist and won a Brit Award in 2011 for Best British Album. They also sealed a European Border Breakers Award for their great international success.
Music lovers who enjoy rock, bluegrass, folk music and avant-garde artistry that doesnâ€™t simply surface all too often, will not want to miss out on one of these two upcoming performances.
If you spent your high school days in flannel and rocked out to grunge you will not want to miss out on Soundgarden and Alice in Chains who will be rocking the roof off on May 18. And just to sweeten the musical pot Cheap Trick is on the ticket. Although Alice in Chains front man Layne Staley died of an overdose in 2002, new lead singer William DuVall carries on the rich harmonious blend of vocals with guitar. And Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell hasnâ€™t lost a beat, as he still delivers with the same ferocity we heard from the Badmotorfinger days. The addition of classic Cheap Trick at its finest to this touring trio will prove to mix this concert up and offer energy from all angles.
If you are a country music lover and you find yourself shaking your head then smile because May 16 offers the Country Megaticket in which Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, and Jason Aldean & Miranda Lambert will twang away on the stage. And if you canâ€™t make it to the venue on that day, fear not for the showâ€™s headliner Tim McGraw will be making another round the following day.
Thanks to the amazing promotional efforts of the Susquehanna Bank Center, Camden, NJ is contending with venues like Madison Square Garden where big name artists please their fans and wide entertainment varieties continue to come on and off the stage to offer local music lovers new, fresh options all year long.View more articles in:
