Sponge to Open for Guns ‘N Roses at The Fillmore

Detroit Rockers to Perform with Music Icons on February 21 in their Hometown

Hometown rockers Sponge will open for music icons Guns 'N Roses at The Fillmore on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 in Detroit.  Tickets are $49.50 - $125 and available at ticketmaster outlets, livenation.com and the venue’s box office.

Although Sponge has toured the world, sharing stages with big name artists including KISS, Soundgarden, and Nickelback (to name just a few), this is the first time Sponge has performed with Guns N’ Roses.  “It should be a great night playing for the G N R crowd.  No doubt we will see these folks singing along to some Sponge songs,” says Sponge’s lead singer Vinnie Dombroski.  He cites Guns ‘N Roses songs "It's So Easy,” "Mr. Brownstone" and "Sweet Child O' Mine" as his personal favorites because “these tunes embody rock and roll swagger and epic writing qualities!”

Sponge is currently traversing the country as part of their "Rotting Piñata’ Rewind Tour," celebrating the band’s debut CD that yielded smash hits “Plowed,” and “Molly/16 Candles.”

The Fillmore is located at 2115 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.  For more information about the show, including ticket availability, please call The Fillmore’s box office at 313- 961-5451.
