MORRISON – Thousands of Jeep® and O.A.R. fans will converge among the legendary Colorado rocks Saturday night, Oct. 4, to hear the band perform at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the annual Jeep on the Rocks concert experience.

O.A.R. kicks off their Colorado experience by off-roading in Jeep Wrangler SUVs through Idaho Springs, Colo., seeing the glorious Rocky Mountains up close in a way only a Jeep vehicle allows. Following their experience on the trail, the band will take to the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre stage for a special concert sponsored by the Jeep brand as a thank you to the fans of O.A.R. and the iconic off-road vehicles.

“Colorado is full of devoted Jeep enthusiasts, and we could not think of a more fitting way to celebrate their loyalty than to host a concert under the stars at Red Rocks with a legendary live performer like O.A.R.,” Jeff Hines, Director of the Denver Business Center, Chrysler Group LLC, said.

O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show – including selling out Madison Square Garden twice – and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of intimacy. The Rockville LP, O.A.R.’s eighth studio album debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Independent Albums chart. The Rockville LP also hit the top spot on the iTunes Rock Albums chart and #3 on iTunes Overall Albums chart. The hit single, “Peace,” reached #1 on the iTunes Rock Singles chart coupled with television performances on The Today Show, Live with Kelly & Michael, Conan, VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live and a national tour.

“Every live band I know will always want nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album,” Marc Roberge lead singer O.A.R., said. “It’s an elusive thing to capture, so I will never say we nailed it. But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of ‘The Rockville LP,’ and we can only hope the audience feels that.”
