Sevendust, Buckcherry headline acts for rock concerts June 21-22 as part of Gem City Concert Series

Gem City Summer Concert Series

QUINCY — The Gem City Concert Series is returning to Quincy this summer to a larger venue.

This year’s series will take place in Lincoln Park on the riverfront. This year’s series will span two weekends. One weekend will feature rock music, and the other will feature country music.

The rock weekend, featuring six national acts, will occur on June 21-22.

Sevendust, which will perform June 21, has global sales of $7 million. The Atlanta, Ga.-based band formed in 1994 and released its first album in 1997. It has three consecutive RIAA gold-certified albums, three Top 15 debuts on the Billboard 200, and its song “Thank You” earned a Grammy award nomination in 2016 for “Best Metal Performance.” Opening for Sevendust will be 10 Years and Adelitas Way, who have collectively garnered millions of music streams and album sales.

Buckcherry, a band from Anaheim, Calif., headlines the June 22 concert. The band was formed in 1995, and its first album, “Buckcherry,” in 1999 was DreamWorks’ first album to go gold. It released the album “15” in 2006, and it contained its biggest crossover hit, “Crazy Bitch,” and its first Billboard Hot 100 Top Ten hit, “Sorry.” Their ninth album, “Hellbound,” was released in 2021, and their 10th and most recent album, “Vol. 10,” was released in 2023.

Buckcherry was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Modern Rock Clip in 1999 for the Billboard Music Video Awards. The band has sold more than four million albums and has more than 300 million song streams. Saliva and Drowning Pool will be the opening acts for Buckcherry.

“Not only are we looking forward to the shows, but we put this together so people from outside the area can come to town and experience what the Quincy area offers,” Scott Edlin, owner of On the Rail Sports Bar and Grill and concert coordinator, said in a press release. “Come for the weekend and catch some great shows, eat at great restaurants in the area, and enjoy Quincy.” 

Gates will open at 6 p.m. each night, and music begins at 7 p.m. Drink and food vendors will be on site each night. Tickets will go on sale at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 23. General admission and VIP pit tickets (the section closest to the stage) will be available. A two-day pass will be available so visitors can enjoy the full weekend at a discounted rate.

Tickets will be available online at or in person at On the Rail.
