I trekked out to DTE Friday (Sept. 7) for the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival and had the pleasure of interviewing Shinedown and Deuce at the show. Look for the interviews to go up later this week!

Overall, Uproar drew a packed crowd and some killer sets. A few of the highlights for me included P.O.D.’s always-sick, energizing set and Shinedown’s headlining performance.

Shinedown's lengthy list of chart-topping rock hits always baffles me. The guys pulled out track spanning their entire catalog, from their debut album, ‘Leave a Whisper,’ up to their latest, ‘Amaryllis.’ During my chat with drummer Barry Kerch, he said that after Uproar wraps, the guys will be in Europe for a while, but plan to do another North American tour next year.
