Live to perform at Grand Prix of Baltimore

MusicTheaterMusical TheaterAuto RacingGrand Prix of BaltimoreRock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

Live, the York-based band that rose to prominence in the mid-1990s with songs like "Selling The Drama" and "Lightning Crashes," will headline the Grand Prix of Baltimore's music offerings.

Organizer Race On LLC announced its lineup Monday.

Live will take to the main stage, between the Hilton and Convention Center, Saturday Aug. 31 at 6 p.m. for an hour-and-a-half show.

The band no longer includes lead singer Ed Kowalczyk, who left during the group's hiatus in 2009 and was later sued by the remaining members of the band.  They claimed he tried to cut them out of profits due the band and continues to misuse the band's name by touring as "Ed Kowalczyk of Live."

Chris Shinn, formerly of Unified Theory, is the new lead singer. The show, according to a news release, "will include many of the band’s biggest hits as well as new material."

"Live is a great addition to the Celebration of Acceleration,” J.P. Grant, managing director of Race On, said according to the release. “We’re pleased to have them as the headliners of an exceptional and well-rounded musical lineup that offers something for everyone.”

Reserved Grand Stand and General Admission tickets to the Grand Prix -- available here -- include access to the main stage. Musical acts will also appear at the Andretti Club and the Corporate Village. A separate slate of music to be performed at the Grand Prix's beer garden will be announced at a later date.
