Salina Loves Its Rock Music

He has survived a brain hemorrhage, a stroke, a hole in his heart, and even working for Donald Trump in “The Apprentice”. Friday night Bret Michaels rocked the Salina Stiefel Theatre, singing the greatest hits of his band Poison.

Michaels, who has also starred in multiple reality television shows and is the star of the current Travel Channel show “Rock My RV With Bret Michaels”, met with fans on his tour bus before and after the show. Following the show various items that Michaels wore on stage, including his signature bandanas, were auctioned off.

Michaels is among a growing number of rock acts that have sold well at the Stiefel, including most recently Rick Springfield. Several similar-type acts are on the horizon at the Stiefel including Melissa Ethridge this coming Wednesday night, and ZZ Top on October 20th.

Another rock singer / reality show star will also perform in Salina. Kip Winger, lead singer of his namesake band Winger and counselor on VH1’s “Rock Fantasy Camp”. Kip is currently on an intimate solo acoustic tour. He will perform at the Paramount Bar in Salina on Friday, October 11th.

I believe we are spending 8 million on the wrong place with the wrong people. The company that took over the bi-center has not produced anything close to what we have been offered at the Stiefel.

Now If I could just afford the Stiefel….luv the music, not the price.

Give it some, Iggy!! It is to my understanding that certain parts of the remodel have to be complete before the BiCenter can book big events and big names. One of those upgrades being the arena’s rigging system. The rigging system is outdated and not nearly strong enough to hold the staging that most, if not all, big shows and big names bring along with them. Stage setups have become very extravagant. I have been just amazed by what I have seen at Intrust Bank Arena at the few concerts I have been to there. No way they could accommodate those kinds of setups with the old and outdated rigging system. Just be patient and see what ends up at the BiCenter AFTER the upgrades are done!!!

Hey Terry T did you read what is showing up at the end of September and at what prices?? Blows a hole in your statement and pocket to see that kind of junk.

My understanding is that rigging work is completed. Therefore they should be booking groups in like the Stiefel but what are they having in there at the end of September is plain insane.
