Joliet Slammers plans to be a live music venue took a hit. Slammerfest (planned for August 10th) billed band, Everclear, has been scratched and moved to the Tinley Park Convention Center.
WJOL has learned that the cost to cover the field to prevent it from being damaged during stage set up would’ve exceeded $20,000. No official reason given. The Slammers did not want to take the chance of damaging the new artificial turf field.
Full refunds will be issued to those whom have purchased tickets. No word from the Slammers on future concerts.
