To kick off the night, the up and coming rockers, Tribe Society, had the crowd dancing along with “Kings” and “1979” from their newly released debut album.

What a way to “shine”! Hit-makers Collective Soul were next to take the stage and had everybody on their feet singing to their popular anthems, “The World I Know” and “December”. Their energetic performance was an amazing way to lead into tour headliners, Goo Goo Dolls.
