Joan Jett, Paul Rodgers, 'Sons of Anarchy' headline Born to Ride Jam at Pinellas Park's England Brothers Park
Fire up your engines, because this is going to be one crazy day in the park.
A new music and motorcycle festival, the Born to Ride Jam, is coming to England Brothers Park in Pinellas Park on Nov. 2, and it's bringing an unusual amount of star wattage.
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Paul Rodgers (of Free, Bad Company and Queen), Foghat, Blackberry Smoke, Molly Hatchet, David Allan Coe and more will headline the music portion of the festival. And on the celebrity side, Sons of Anarchy stars Katey Sagal (Gemma), Kim Coates (Tig) and Theo Rossi (Juice) will be there; as will Danny "The Count" Koker and Kevin Mack from the History Channel's Counting Cars and professional pool player Jeanette "The Black Widow" Lee.
General admission tickets go on sale Saturday for $25, though the first 2,000 sold get a $5 discount. A ticket to meet the celebrities -- who will have two 90-minute meet-and-greet sessions during the day -- is $25. VIP tickets start at $79.
The Born to Ride Jam is calling itself a "no colors event," meaning motorcycle clubs won't be admitted, so it should be a fairly family-friendly affair (not that your kids should really be watching Sons of Anarchy or anything).
