One of WMGK‘s biggest events is back and was officially announced yesterday!
That’s right! Our Big Gig 2023 is back and is sure to be as fun as ever with great musical acts set to take the stage!
This year our headliners will be ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd with the Big Gig 2023 being their last stop on their brand new tour, The Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour, which was announced to the public yesterday.
Uncle Kracker will be the supporting act throughout the tour and will also be opening up for the headliners during our Big Gig.
The date for this year’s event will be on Sunday, September 17th, 2023 at the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion just over the bridge in Camden, New Jersey.
Though, just make sure you don’t get it confused with any of the Pavilion’s former umpteen names such as the BB&T Pavilion, Susquehanna Bank Center, Tweeter Center, or the Blockbuster-Sony Music Entertainment Centre aka the E-Centre!
Then again, by the time September rolls around it may have a new name all together yet again, so hang tight!
That being said, whether you are in the pit, the seated area, or the general attendance lawn area, this is a show you are not going to want to miss!
I am pumped about this!
Having two titans of American classic rock take the stage in their first co-headlining tour is such a cool thing for the station!
The bands will hit the road starting in late July for 23 different stops along the way, and will conclude the tour right here in Camden for the greater Philadelphia area to enjoy!
They saved the best for last!
Hopefully, that means we will get the best shows from each of the bands since they’ll have a ton of time to perfect their setlists!
This will be our second year back since the pandemic and it is always a great time seeing a bunch of the station’s listeners out and about enjoying great music on a summer night.
