For two years, the world as most people knew it, was turned upside down. Ever since Covid-19 brought concerts and tours to a crashing halt, the global live music industry has been in a bind – band’s locked away, venues closed, tours postponed. But Covid-19 couldn’t kill rock n’ roll! ‘Masquerade: A True Rock ‘N Roll Experience’ is set for a full weekend of performances at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA.

Listen in to our interview with Brad Lee for the full event details, and read on for glimpse of what to expect.

Masquerade kicks-off on Thursday, July 28th with Michael Grant & The Assassins with special guests Whiskey Grin, Steel City and more. The full-blown 2022 Masquerade begins on Friday, July 29th and includes Rock and Roll Hall Fame Inductee, Steven Adler, Beasto Blanco, Dirty Looks, Pretty Boy Floyd, supergroup Tokyo Motor Fist, Spread Eagle and more!
