Rock Candy

Foo Fighters, Metallica and a host of other rock acts are taking part in a new streaming series kicking off June 12.

Offstage with DWP comes via Danny Wimmer Presents, the independent promoter behind a number of summer rock festivals including Sonic Temple, Louder Than Life, Bourbon & Beyond, Epicenter, Aftershock and Welcome to Rockville.

Due to festivals being canceled this year because of COVID-19, DWP said in a statement, “In lieu of the DWP festivals, we all look forward to year-after-year, we here at DWP are pleased to announce a new digital series, Offstage with DWP, that provides unique and original content deeply rooted in the rock ‘n roll lifestyle we all love and crave. Since 2020 has not panned out as planned with the highly anticipated dual-headlining performances by Metallica, DWP thought of no better way to kick-off Offstage with DWP this Friday at 7 PM ET than by featuring a full headlining set from Metallica’s incredible sold-out performance at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH in May 2017.”

In addition to Metallica’s set, fans can check out select songs from the Foo Fighters’ 2019 set at Sonic Temple along with a Q&A with Chris Shiflett on Saturday, June 20 at 7 PM ET.

Also joining the fun is Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix on Tuesday, June 16 at 7 PM ET for an exclusive Q&A and Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger on Thursday, June 18 at 7 PM ET for an exclusive Q&A and acoustic performance.
