Trespass America Festival
Kellogg Arena, Battlecreek,
The good thing about arriving at the Kellogg Arena I parked right next to the arena. They offer a parking garage attached to the Arena along with an indoor lobby area. It was in the low 90’s that day so it was nice for the first time to wait inside where it was air conditioned.
I found out early that my cell phone only worked outside the lobby once inside I had no reception, which ruined our hopes for most interviews. We did anchor one interview with John Outcalt the bass player for God Forbid.
The interview went great and we made John laugh at some of the questions we asked.
After the interview we made our way back to will call to get our VIP, photo passes and tickets. Again it was air conditioned and in the winter it’s heated which is a plus for going to see a show. You also have a Starbuck’s shop inside for eats and drinks which we stopped at.

It is a rare occasion to see such a rock icon in such a small venue.
The show sold out quickly despite the high ticket prices. But he did not let the audience down. It was a great show by a great artist at a great venue.
