More live music is coming to the Quad Cities this spring.

It was a little over a year ago that Tech N9ne brought his one-of-a-kind show to The Rust Belt in East Moline.  And now he is back for another high-energy show.

Tech N9ne will be joined by Joey Cool and Random Tanner.  Tickets go on sale Thursday with promo code "IROCK" and are on sale everywhere Friday at 10:00 am.

The Rust Belt also announced Stryper will be coming to town this spring.  You can get details on that one here.

Tech N9ne

He’s bucked every trend, and not only built a culture but a whole damn world with Strange Music.

Tech has gone from packed Midwest underground shows to the annual Forbes “Cash Kings” list multiple times, the cover of XXL, the playlists of Sir Elton John and Dwayne Johnson, and national commercials for the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Beyond tallying billions of streams and views, he has scored four platinum singles, three gold singles, and a gold album. He notched 23 entries on the Billboard Top albums Chart and holds the record for “most Top 10 albums on the rap chart.” Tech has cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200 four times.

He has sold out hundreds of shows as part of a relentless schedule. He also introduced his own craft beer Bou Lou—in partnership with KC's own Boulevard Brewery.

Even before signing, Joey grabbed the attention of Strange Music emcees, boasting collaborations with Ces Cru (who featured Joey on their 2015 EP Recession Proof), Tech N9ne and JL. In fact, JL and Joey already have electric chemistry you can see (anytime they perform together on stage) and hear (on the standout track “Catch A Wave” from JL’s album DIBKIS).

Joey Cool, a seasoned veteran with a distinct style and an already deep relationship with Strange Music, made him the perfect addition to the roster. The Strange Reign release concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in front of 10,000 fans became the perfect place to make it official.
