Lafayette, Indiana, USA
Please join family and friends in the celebration of the life and music of Shannon Hoon, (former/original) singer of Blind Melon. This year is going to be packed full of special events for everyone to enjoy. In addition to our reunions, usual sing-alongs, and light-hearted shenanigans current frontman/singer of Blind Melon, Travis Warren, has cordially agreed to join us in celebrating. As if his attendance were not already exciting enough, he is set to play an acoustic show for us on Friday, at the historic Knickerbocker Saloon!! He also plans to attend the annual Vigil on Saturday as well!
As there has always been in the past, there will be the heavily anticipated, fantastic shirts for purchase at the Vigil- so budget accordingly. Come out and celebrate with plenty of Hoon fans, as well as Shannons gracious mom, Nel, who has been known to hand out heartfelt (and often handmade) gifts, so consider arriving early.
The weekend wouldnt be complete without the annual tribute show, Vigilstock 11, being held on Sunday. This show is sure to include many stellar Blind Melon covers with great acts playing them. Vigilstock will also be held at the Knickerbocker Saloon, with a second stage in the Atrium Room that will be All Ages. Dont fret, there will be pre-sale tickets being sold for both Friday and Sunday shows starting Tuesday, September 3rd, call (765)423-2234 to reserve your tickets. Both Fridays and Sundays shows will also be audiotaped by Rachel of Deadmelon Productions.
