Crash, Appetite For Destruction To Rock IMS After Dark On Aug. 26

The lineup of IMS After Dark activities continues to grow for the Red Bull Indianapolis GP MotoGP event, as pop-rock band Crash and rock tribute band Appetite For Destruction will perform Friday, Aug. 26 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Crash, the band led by two-time World Superbike champion and former MotoGP rider James Toseland, will play from 7:15-8:15 p.m. on the Red Bull Energy Station Stage in the IMS infield. Appetite For Destruction, a premier Guns ‘N Roses tribute band, will be on stage from 8:30-10 p.m.

The concerts are included in the regular $10 general admission. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.

“Crash and Appetite For Destruction are great additions to a packed musical lineup during IMS After Dark on Friday, Aug. 26 and Saturday, Aug. 27,” said Jeff Belskus, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation president and chief executive officer. “The Red Bull Indianapolis GP truly is the ultimate motorcycle race and late-summer party, with added value for our loyal fans all three days.”

It’s the fourth consecutive year that Toseland will perform at IMS during the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. He played with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in 2008 and was joined on-stage by Crash in 2009 and 2010.

Toseland is a concert-trained pianist and an engaging front man and vocalist. His band plays an eclectic cover mix of rock, pop and crowd favorites.

Appetite For Destruction has paid tribute to rock legends Guns N’ Roses for more than 10 years. Unlike many other tribute bands, Appetite For Destruction focuses explicitly on the audio and visual aspects of Guns N’ Roses, and strives for duplication in both areas.

The band’s catalog of more than 50 Guns N’ Roses songs is larger than any other tribute band in the country.

IMS After Dark is the new lineup of evening events Friday, Aug. 26 and Saturday, Aug. 27 creating a great party destination at the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. Activities include live music, food and drink and a gathering place to enjoy the motorcycle lifestyle on the new “Main Street” in the IMS infield.

On Saturday evening, Aug. 27, unique electro-rock band Ghostland Observatory, acoustic pop/freestyle artist Kelley James and in-demand DJ Mick Boogie will perform on the Red Bull Energy Station Stage.

James will open the evening of music at 6:30 p.m., followed by Boogie. Ghostland Observatory will take the stage at 9 p.m. The concerts are included in the regular $20 general admission, with a special $15 admission for students. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
