    Def Leppard might be a crowd pleaser, and available at the right price for IMS

    Isn't the lead singer dead?

    That does not seem to matter, the 38 special band that came to IMS only had a few originals, also Journey that came to IMS had a replacement lead singer.

    True, I guess I'm not up to date on Warrant - I wrongly assumed the band ended w/ his death.

    Depends on how you define "ended."

    Warrant and most bands like them really ended when Nirvana's Nevermind came out.

    I remember seeing Jani Lane interviewed and he said during Warrant's heyday he went into the record company's office and they had a giant "Cherry Pie" artwork on the wall. Next time he went in it was the Alice in Chains Dirt album cover.

    If it's KISS, I'll pass and spend my money elsewhere. The same for Def Leppard. Extremely overrated.

    I would come watch Alice in Chains. What about Stone Temple Pilots? They have a new lead singer, a new album and a new tour starting.

    IF they could land the Foo Fighters, the crowd turnout would be huge. They could easily have attendance numbers close to or even more than the Rolling Stone concert.

    Foo Fighters would be sweet, but I like KISS too, and Def Leppard even more.

    KISS puts on a great show. You don't have to be a fan of their music to enjoy it; you just have to have an open mind and not go in with your mind made up that you will hate it. If you do that, I guarantee anyone would have a good time.

    Foo Fighters would easily be the biggest draw, bridging the gaps between all of the bands ever playing carb day and the broad range of attendees. Bring FF to IMS with a carb day admission price, and you will easily have 60-70K in attendance just for the concert alone. Their tour schedule is open that day .

    No, "Relevant," means current, as in still creating original music and not not just coasting on on one or two hits for 40 years ago, and if they were an 80's band, their 40th anniversary is coming up, soon

    One or two hits? KISS has more gold records than any other band in American history and have had countless hits. Their last album was released 5 years ago and did well by today's standards. KISS are very much relevant today, and they have had more hits/sold more records than any of the more contemporary acts listed in this thread will in their entire careers. Think any of those hip hop/pop acts will still be around in 40 years? Guess again.

    I've been saying this for years. Foo Fighters would tick all the boxes. The concert crowd would be immense.

    I'm not personally a fan of Foo Fighters, but yeah I can admit they would be a good choice for IMS. However, as others have mentioned, out of the price range for carb day and likely would be a much better candidate for a standalone concert at IMS.

    Perhaps Gene and the Band can sign a long-term deal to be the carb day band every year. Starts a new tradition, has Indiana ties, etc. How can it miss?

    Besides, "older" bands like KISS do have plenty of younger fans. Young people have access to literally all the music in the world now, which we didn't; the flavor-of-the-month pop act is a lot less important to them than it was to older generations. That's why you still see teenagers listening to the Beatles, Queen, Bowie, Journey, KISS, GN'R, Nirvana, etc. Good music survives; pop doesn't.

    And an outdoor KISS show is a SHOW. It's a rock concert, circus, superhero movie, and fireworks display all rolled into one. They have lots of great tunes, but for KISS that's only half the show.
    Well said indeed.

    You what they could do, as a compromise, is book The Struts. Their lead singer sounds like Freddie Mercury, so the grey hairs could relieve their youth by listening to something that sounds like a Queen cover band, but is actually a relevant, current band, that will appeal to the younger demo that Indycar needs to recruit.


    Seriously though, I don't get why Baby Boomers and Gen-X don't keep up with music. It's the same genre, just constantly evolving. Like if you like guitar rock Barnes Courtney is as good as or better than Bruce Springsteen, or anyone else in that genre. Cold War Kids are as good as a rock band as anything there's ever done. KISS put on a good show back in the day? Great, they've got nothing on Lady GaGa and other performers who have surpassed them.

    I like some oldies acts from my Dad's time; Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, and Matchbox Twenty had some good songs, but they've gone stale.
