Despite being one of the most hated bands with a record deal, ICP has managed to release several platinum albums, set the record for longest running hip-hop record in Billboard Top 200 history, and even wrestle in WWE and WCW (as well as starting its own Juggalo Championship Wrestling organization) – all while building an army of loyal Juggalo fans.
Twisted Blaze, Anybody Killa, and local emcee Locke open the show.
Tickets are $10, through TicketsWest outlets (325-SEAT, www.ticketswest.com).
