Post-Race Concert at the Finish Line Festival
It wouldn’t be rock ‘n’ roll without a live concert at the finish line where you can celebrate your accomplishment with some of rock music’s favorite acts!
Headliner Announced: NEW POLITICS
After finding major success in the U.S. with their self-titled debut in 2010, the members of New Politics moved from their native Denmark to New York, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and impressing fans on the road with their dynamic live shows. Their new album, A Bad Girl in Harlem, reflects their experience moving overseas and combines their original punk rock sound with a pop flavor. Hits like “Harlem” and “Tonight You’re Perfect” are already climbing radio charts and earning New Politics a place in the U.S. mainstream music scene.
As all of the runners cross the finish line, the pumping beats and rocking sound of New Politics will keep race participants on their feet a little longer as they celebrate their 13.1 or 26.2 mile accomplishment at the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Marathon & ½ Marathon. The post-race concert at Red Hat Amphitheater, is free and open to the public
