If heavy metal is your kind of music, don’t miss One, the Only Tribute to Metallica on Saturday, June 2. Show time is 8pm.
All ages are welcome. Admission is free.

ONE… The Only Tribute to Metallica, was established in 2008, in their hometown of Minneapolis, MN. These four horsemen have expanded from the Twin Cities and brought North America an amazing national level touring tribute to the biggest hard rock and heavy metal band of all time.

Unlike the other Metallica tribute and cover bands, ONE focuses explicitly on the audio and visual aspects of a LIVE Metallica show. Their catalog consists of over 60 songs from their early garage band days up to the legends that they are today. ONE’s stage show is a memorable one that fans will remember from the 80’s and 90’s. Theatrical thrills that have been encompassed into a full arsenal of pyrotechnics, stage props, and some rare early days memorabilia and signature instruments will keep fans coming back for more.

This is not your average tribute band. ONE has played with many large national acts on a number of festival and amphitheater stages. Members of ONE have not only worked as part of the crew , but have also been fortunate enough to jam with Metallica on their main stage!

It’s time you experience ONE once and for all – and the rest will be history!



The Return to Seattle tribute show takes center stage in the amphitheater on Saturday, June 9.  Hear Mad Alice’s tribute to Alice in Chains, Alive’s tribute to Pearl Jam ad Lithium’s tribute to Nirvana. Show time is 8pm. All ages welcome. Admission is free.

Mad Alice loves Alice in Chains and Mad Season. Our goal is to deliver an accurate representation of the music found on both band’s albums. We don’t attempt to look like or act like the bands, our focus is on the sound. We also stay away from the newer material. Though we love the new stuff, we really want to pay homage to an era gone by… to the man himself, Layne Staley. If you want the new stuff, see Alice in Chains.


Alive – The Definitive Tribute to Pearl Jam celebrates the music of one of Seattle’s most influential bands of the 90’s and the “Grunge” music scene.

Pearl Jam has outlasted and outsold every artist from the alternative era. They are considered to be one of the most influential bands of all time. PJ is a thriving, formidable band that sells out shows everywhere, all the time.

It’s no easy task to recreate the music of an artist that has sold more than 30 million records in the U.S. and over 60 million records worldwide. Their live performances are legendary, spontaneous, and are loved by rock fans of all ages.

Alive – The Definitive Tribute to Pearl Jam stays true to the music, giving an energetic and powerful live performance of Pearl Jam’s greatest hits, Top Ten Singles and #1 songs.



Lithium plays out each show to try to relight the wick that has kept the stage dark for some time. Whether a huge auditorium or a small closet club, you’ll feel as if you’ve transcended back a decade…to a time when ängst was a muse for some of the greatest songs ever written.
