 CASTING CROWNS, Billboard’s top selling act in Christian music since 2007, returns to the Beaver Dam Amphitheater on Friday, June 19, 2020-7PM.  Joining them will be Jamie Kimmett. Ticket prices range from $19.50 to $49.50 and go on sale Saturday, December 14, at 8AM CST.  Beaver Dam Amphitheater now offers Reserved Gold Circle Tables, Reserved VIP seating in the lower arena, PIT General Admission tickets, and General Admission lawn seating.
With 11 million albums sold to date—including one RIAA Double Platinum Album, five Platinum and seven Gold records, and two Platinum and four Gold DVDs—Casting Crowns remains Billboard’s top selling act in Christian music since 2007. The award-winning group – consisting of Mark Hall, Melodee DeVevo, Brian Scoggin, Megan Garrett, Juan DeVevo, Chris Huffman and Josh Mix – got its start as a youth group worship band originally based in Florida. Today, each of the seven members remain active in ministry at their respective churches
Their chart-topping songs—including “Who Am I,” “Voice of Truth,” “Praise You In This Storm,” “Just Be Held” and “Only Jesus”—have earned them nine No. 1 hits at radio and four RIAA Gold certified digital singles. In addition, Casting Crowns has appeared on “Good Morning America,” NBC’s “Today,” CNN, MSNBC, “Fox News,” “Fox & Friends,” “Huckabee” and more. They also had their debut performance at Carnegie Hall in January 2015.
Singer-songwriter Jamie Kimmett’s talent for writing truth-fueled songs comes from a deeply personal place. His enthusiasm for sharing scripture and, ultimately, the hope that transformed his own life, spills over into his every interaction.  Through a series of divine appointments, Kimmett’s heart was transformed to an all-encompassing love for Jesus, a love that’s woven throughout his songs and performances offering a picture of a man completely changed by the love of Christ.

3rd Annual 80's Rock Fest at The Dam @ Beaver Dam Amphitheater | Beaver Dam | Kentucky | United States

 Multi-Platinum ‘80s Rockers RATT will headline the 3rd Annual ‘80s Rock the Dam Fest on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at Beaver Dam Amphitheater. Lita Ford and BulletBoys (with all original members), round out the lineup for the annual festival that has quickly become a staple of the regional outdoor summer concert scene.

Ticket prices range from $39.50 to $99.50. A limited number of GOLD CIRCLE and RESERVED tickets will include meet n greet / photo ops with each band. Beaver Dam Amp now offers Reserved Gold Circle tables, Reserved VIP seating in the lower arena, PIT tickets, and General Admission lawn seating.  Tickets on sale now beaverdamtourism.com/concerts-events.

RATT helped pioneer Hollywood’s legendary Sunset Strip sound and scene in the 1980’s. Created by lead singer songwriter Stephen Pearcy in 1982, the band’s debut album, “Out of the Cellar,” went over 3x Platinum.  It included the smash hit single “Round & Round,” “Back for More,” and “Wanted Man.” RATT has sold more than 18 million records worldwide. They continue to sell out venues and headline festivals.

Released on February 2, 1988 the “Lita” album boasted four charting hit singles. “Back to the Cave,” “Falling In and Out of Love,” along with the world wide mega hits “Kiss me Deadly,” nominated for the MTV Video Music Awards Best Female Video of the year.

The BulletBoys formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles glam metal movement.  Their first album kept the rock and blues coming with the smash hit single “Smooth Up in Ya.” After a successful cover of the classic blues song, “For the Love of Money” The BulletBoys officially established themselves as the leaders of party rock.
