M3 Rock Fest 2018

By Bob Suehs



5/4/2018 & 5/5/2018

Merriweather Post Pavilion

Columbia, MD


 Maryland’s yearly homage to all things hair metal, the M3 Rock Fest, happens on May 4 & 5 at the newly remodeled Merriweather Post in Columbia, Maryland with a bill that features former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley!

 KIX headline Friday nightl and direct support comes from former Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer.  Y&T, Faster Pussycat, Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd fill out the bill on Friday with an exclusive performance from Tesla’s Frank Hannon for those who purchase the VIP package.

 Saturday features M3 first timer Ace Frehley and there’s a rumor that Gene Simmons may join Space Ace onstage for a few songs, keep your fingers crossed!

 Queensryche are billed as the nights headliner on Saturday.  Night Ranger, Sebastian Bach, Stryper, and many more fill out the all day event.  Sebastian Bach and Stryper are newly added to the bill; both bands have performed at M3 in years past and bring their own unique fanbase(s) to the bill.

 LA Guns were originally slated to perform at M3 this year but dropped off last minute.  This would have been Tracii Guns first time ever performing at M3 and hopefully he will eventually perform at the festival.
