Get ready to go off the rails with the Legendary Buffalo Chip as they host the summer's largest and most authentic music festival of its kind. For nearly 30 years the Legendary Buffalo Chip has proven itself as the heart of Sturgis Rally Week.
This year with Sturgis celebrating its 70th Anniversary, the Chip has kicked it into high gear with a music lineup guaranteed to heat up your Rally Week festivities.
The Chip's newest addition to the summer's biggest biker lineup is the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne. Certain to send shockwaves through the Buffalo Chip's infamous outdoor amphitheatre, Ozzy's notorious spectacle of gore and glitz is sure to rock and shock.
Originally rising to prominence as the lead vocalist of the cutting-edge British heavy metal band, Black Sabbath in the 1970's, Osbourne went on to achieve a multi-platinum solo career spanning three decades which lead to the eventual and complete revolution of the heavy metal music genre.
Also gracing the renowned stage of the Legendary Buffalo Chip for a once-in-a-lifetime performance on Tuesday, August 10 is America's quintessential singer, songwriter, activist and poet, Bob Dylan. A musical luminary of unmatched proportions, Dylan will be offering those in attendance a unique glimpse into his remarkable repertoire of musical contributions that have spanned nearly 50 years.
A trendsetter by every definition of the word, Dylan's slangy yet profound lyrics successfully changed the face of American music, culture and politics.
