Aaron Lewis and Sully Erna team up for the American Drive-In Tour

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on September 14, 2020

The voices of Straind and Godsmack come together for an intimate, unplugged, side-by-side live experience.

As one of the first major drive-in rock tours to be planned across multiple cities across the nation, the pairing of Godsmack’s Sully Erna and Staind’s Aaron Lewis will be a uniquely intimate event for fans of two of rock music’s most prolific frontmen.

The 13-day run of shows will feature both Erna and Lewis sharing the same stage and performing their biggest hits together for a phenomenal night of music.

Aaron Lewis shared his excitement about the joint venture and about getting back to performing onstage. “Sully and I have been friends for 25 years. We’ve been talking about doing something for the last 10 years,” said explained Lewis. “The time has finally come. I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this to you in such strange times.”

Erna added, “Me and Aaron Lewis? Onstage together…acoustic? Do I need to say more? Just don’t miss it! It may never happen again.”

The unplugged-esque event will feature  featuring a special evening of hits, covers and conversation with the anger/songwriters appearing together on stage.

Event producer Danny Wimmer Presents has a well-established working relationship with both artists and has created a live performance environment that will not only work to bring the energy of concerts back, but will do so while promoting social distancing and a safe fan experience.
