Welcome

COVID-19 Response

“Hello everyone. We hope that you are all safe and healthy and remain that way. We wanted to take a moment to give you an update on the concerts scheduled for Rapids Theatre. Right now none of the concerts are canceled, but rather will be rescheduled for August onward with most of the shows landing after October 1st. We have confirmed dates for several of the concerts, but are being asked to wait a bit longer to announce, so that the band can announce all of the rescheduled dates at once. If you purchased a ticket for any show, or event at Rapids it will be honored on the new date. Ticket holders are asked to just hold on to your ticket. If an event is canceled you will receive an automatic refund on your credit card. If an event is canceled and you paid cash for your ticket you'll be refunded at the box office once Rapids is open and operational again, but that is only for the few that might have paid cash for their tickets and the show is canceled. Again, no concerts are canceled and we'll be announcing the rescheduled dates shortly. Please remain safe and healthy and we'll see you shortly down the road.”

Alter Bridge

Heroes push us to excel. Their will, courage, and sacrifice can bring out the best in the world around them.

Fittingly, on their fifth full-length album, The Last Hero, hard rock juggernaut Alter Bridge pursue a level of excellence inspired by timeless heroism. Making the record became something of a personal quest for the quartet—Myles Kennedy [vocals, guitar], Mark Tremonti [guitar, vocals], Brian Marshall [bass], and Scott Phillips [drums]. In 2013, the band reached an elevated creative and critical milestone with Fortress. It bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 30,000 copies first-week and earning unanimous tastemaker praise. The record garnered perfect scores from Total Guitar and KERRANG! as well as acclaim from Billboard, The Guardian, Loudwire, Ultimate Guitar, and many more. In between sold out tours in Europe and North America, the guys appeared on VH1 and graced the cover of Classic Rock Magazine who labeled Fortress, “The best thing they’ve ever done,” while Eddie Trunk called it, “A top 10 album of the last 10 years.” When it came time to write new music, the musicians collectively raised the bar yet again.

“Every time we do a record, my only goal is for people to simply think it’s better than the previous one,” declares Mark. “We pushed ourselves so hard last time, and we knew were going to push ourselves much harder here. When we brought material in, it had to outdo Fortress.”

“We always strive for that,” agrees Myles. “While recognizing where we’ve come from, we wanted to expand what Alter Bridge is. This record is definitely an exploration of the hero theme—whether it be the lack of heroes, the need for heroes, or a tribute to heroes. There’s a story in there.”

Myles wrapped up touring with Slash, and Mark finished up a successful run supporting his second solo album Cauterize in late 2015. By January 2016, the four members congregated back in Orlando with longtime producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette [Slash, Trivium]. Over the next four months, they diligently assembled and tracked the 13 songs comprising The Last Hero.

“Because we have very finite windows of time to put these records together, it’s nonstop when we regroup,” explains Myles. “Each writer is very involved.”

“We’d work all day in the studio, and Myles and I would go back to my house and come up with ideas all night,” recalls Mark. “We set up camp in my kids’ playroom with a Garage Band system to prepare for the next day. It was intense.”

Constantly progressing, the boys decided to employ some fresh techniques, utilize more alternate tunings and even recorded on a seven-string guitar for the first time.
