The pop-metal band Poison has been chosen to headline the Coors Light Carb Day concert, announced Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials Wednesday.
The band will take the stage at the IMS infield on Friday, May 24.
“Capping off Coors Light Carb Day with a high-powered, entertaining concert like we will see from Poison is a great way to celebrate the beginning of Race Weekend,” said Jeff Belskus, IMS president and chief executive officer. “Poison has produced hits and entertained crowds around the world for more than 25 years, and our fans will have a great time during their energy-filled show.”
The concert will be free with a Coors Light Carb Day admission of $20. Tickets can be purchased here.
Poison, comprised of Bret Michaels, Rikki Rockett, Bobby Dall and C.C. Deville, has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and 10 of their singles have reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, including the smash No. 1 single “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
The concert will be the finale of an action-packed day at the IMS. The final practice for the 33 starters in the Indianapolis 500, the Firestone Freedom 100 race for Firestone Indy Lights and the Indy 500 Pit Stop Challenge are also scheduled for the day.
The 2013 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for noon Sunday, May 26.
