SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3 IN VILLA PARK, IL
Another night of music has been announced for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare–the ultimate Halloween horror event–at Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL. Detroit-based horrorcore/hip hop band Insane Clown Posse, rock band P.O.D., along with artists Stitches, Young Wicked, and Dope D.O.D., will perform at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare on Saturday, October 3.
When Insane Clown Posse (ICP) emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit’s underground music scene in the early ‘90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists–Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope–would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of “conventional” retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans endearingly called “Juggalos” and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.
Tickets for the October 3 show at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare go on sale Friday, August 28 at 10:00 AM CT and start at only $35. Tickets include the concert and haunted attractions. Tickets purchased at the door (if available) will start at $45. On October 3, doors open at 5:00 PM and the concert starts at 7:00 PM.
A limited number of VIP packages will also be available for purchase at www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com. All VIP packages include a commemorative t-shirt and quicker access to the haunted attractions than general admission.
As previously announced, October 2 & 4 at Great American Nightmare will also feature two special concerts with groundbreaking musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie.
Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2015 will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films: Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D, The Devil’s Rejects, and 31. Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D and The Devil’s Rejects debuted at Great American Nightmare in Scottsdale, Arizona last year. 31 is a brand new, never-before-seen haunt based on Rob’s forthcoming film of the same name.
The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will include the ALL NEW Bloody Boulevard with major carnival rides, freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night. Note: Carnival rides will not be open on concert nights.
