Tickets on Sale Saturday August 15 for Dog Jam '09 at Ford Pavillion

BEAUMONT, TX, August 13, 2009 – What you have been waiting for is here! Tickets for the highly anticipated Dog Jam 09 will go on sale this Saturday, August 15 at 10 am.
DOG JAM 09, officially sponsored by Bud Light, comes to Ford Pavilion on Sunday, October 18 with headliner THE BLACK CROWES, already announced special guests SAVING ABEL and SEVENDUST along with newcomers TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. More band announcements to follow in the coming weeks.
This will be the fourth Dog Jam to be held at Ford Pavilion and is one of the most requested concert events by Southeast Texans.


Founded in the late 80’s by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, The Black Crowes’ debut album in 1990 received multi-platinum certification, and produced such hits as “Hard To Handle,” “She Talks To Angels,” and “Twice As Hard.” Their second album The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion with hits “Remedy” and “Thorn In My Pride” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s top 200 albums.
They spent much of the 90’s on tour with groups like ZZ Top and the Who, even opening for the Grateful Dead. Following a hiatus during which time singer Chris Robinson concentrated on solo projects, the brothers reformed the band in early 2005. They again hit the road, this time with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers among others. Most recent albums include Warpaint (2008) and, set to hit stores in September 2009, is Before the Frost…Until the Freeze.

Currently at #5, Saving Abel has spent 18 weeks on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and is at #1 on the Big Dog 106 Playlist. Other hits include “Drowning Face Down” and “18 Days.” After touring with groups such as Nickleback and Hinder, Saving Abel will bring their blend of southern and alternative rock to Dog Jam 09!

Best known for hits such as “Praise,” “Angel’s Son,” “Driven,” “Enemy” (used as the official theme song for WWE Unforgiven 2003), Sevendust has had many songs become part of movie history from “My Ruin” heard in the Mortal Kombat soundtrack album to “Pieces” for the film Saw II.
