Rock and roll is all about entertainment and nostalgia. Who among us doesn’t remember their first rock concert and the thrill of seeing the band take the stage for the first time? It’s an experience that remains in our memory forever and is likely to be repeated every year, through middle age and beyond.
Here at Great Beer Now, I’m getting ready to attend a rock concert, not just as a spectator, but as a participant with the band members, complete with backstage passes and a place on the tour bus. The band happens to be Godsmack, the Massachusetts- based alternative rock/heavy metal band that is presently touring the country as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival with Pura Vida Tequila.
Note: Tickets to attend the festival are provided courtesy of Pura Vida Tequila. All other event- related expenses are our own.
Pura Vida is relatively new to the world of booze, but it continues to win over fans with its premium taste and reasonable price. I first tried Pura Vida Tequila about a year ago and I, too, was impressed by its flavor profile and overall quality. I like the Anejo best of all and I like how the Silver is so compatible with such a wide assortment of mixed drinks, from Margaritas to Bloody Marias and beyond. Pura Vida is sponsoring the tour and bottles of this premium tequila will be present at the event for sampling.
To add to the quality of premium tequila, you need premium entertainment. And premium is exactly what is in store when Godsmack performs during the tour. Godsmack has been around since 1995 and is known for many memorable and commercially successful albums such as “Faceless”, “The Oracle”, “Awake”, and others. Godsmack’s musical genre isn’t easy to pin down but has been described as alternative metal. Whatever you want to call it, Godsmack’s music is one of a kind and its millions of fans cannot get enough.
