invited Young Jesus and Brighton, MA to a national showdown tour along the famed Route 66 in the Fall of 2010
This Sunday, July 17, the NBC affiliate in Chicago will air the first episode of Rock the Route, showcasing the cross-country tour, which included five stops along a seven-day journey filled with challenges -- on and off the stage.
The bands competed in several unique music competitions judged by surprise critics and established musicians. They also took turns either driving a debilitated van down Route 66 or getting to ride in a decked out, refurbished ’55 Greyhound bus.
Celebrity appearances include Plain White Ts, Shiny Toy Guns and Gilby Clarke from Guns & Roses.
Watch all the episodes both on NBC5 Chicago this Sunday at 11:35 pm EST and online at NBC Chicago.
