Thousands Flock to See The Band Perry Live

Newly-named nominees for two Teen Choice Awards, The Band Perry, launched into a series of headlining performances over Fourth of July Weekend that exceeded capacity expectations and more than delivered on energy and crowd interaction.

It’s proof that The Band Perry has become a captivating headlining act in their own right, even as they continue having the experience of a lifetime opening for Tim McGraw and are looking forward to opening dates for Keith Urban (September) and Reba McEntire (December).

At TBP’s June 30th performance, fans exceeded capacity at the KC Live! Stage at the Power & Light District in Kansas City, MO – 12,500 fans were admitted but 2,000 had to sadly be turned away by organizers due to space restrictions. On July 1, at the Hillsboro Festival of The Bells in Ohio, attendance exceeded 18,000. On July 2, the trio played close to home in Rogersville, TN where over 40,000 friends and family members made up the audience. The Band Perry closed out the weekend on the Louisville, KY Waterfront Park on July 3, when 75,000 showed up, despite inclement weather.

“This band just wowed the crowd,” said Ashley Cox, director of Louisville Waterfront Independence Day Festival in Louisville, KY. “They played through the weather like complete professionals and turned a dark day into a Country & Rock show that won’t soon be forgotten.”

Next up, fans of The Band Perry will determine if they’ll earn two Teen Choice Surfboards – for Choice Country Group and Choice Country Single (“If I Die Young”) – at TEEN CHOICE 2011. Voting has already begun and fans can cast new votes each day.

“In an award show determined by fans, especially one that covers every aspect of entertainment, from Hollywood stars to athletes to musicians of all genres, we are thrilled to be thought of as one of the nominees to represent Country music,” said Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry.

TEEN CHOICE 2011 will air live Sunday, Aug. 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
