KGB LAUNCHES “SEPTEMBER TO REMEMBER” WITH A BANG!
40th Anniversary of KGB Skyshow presented by Sycuan Casino on September 5
San Diego, CA – June 8, 2015 – 101.5 KGB FM, San Diego’s legendary Classic Rock station, kicks off a Classic Rock filled September celebration with the 40th Annual KGB Sky Show after the San Diego State Aztecs vs. University of San Diego Toreros NCAA football game at Qualcomm Stadium on September 5, 2015. The KGB Sky Show is synchronized to a custom soundtrack that can be heard in the stadium, on-air at 101.5 FM, and via live stream at 101kgb.com.
The Aztecs vs. Toreros game is the first meeting of the two teams since 1961 and kicks off the season for both organizations. For the past 40 years, 101.5 KGB has entertained San Diegans with a spectacular display of pyrotechnics with “The Biggest Fireworks Show West of the Mississippi.” Each year, KGB develops a new show theme and works with a production team from Fireworks by Pyro Spectaculars by Souza to choreograph a musical soundtrack and pyrotechnic display that brings the theme to life and leaves the audience in awe.
Sky Show is a massive fireworks presentation that takes months of preparation. The production culminates in a production that takes more than 60 pyro-technicians working with ten computers to discharge more than 5,000 shells set up in numerous locations throughout the stadium, including: 31 parking lot locations, 16 playing field locations, and atop the light board. The 40th Annual KGB Sky Show is presented by Sycuan Casino.
"The 101 KGB is going all-out for our 40th Anniversary!” said Shauna Moran, 101 KGB Program Director. “We plan to wow the fans with one of our best musically synchronized fireworks show in San Diego that will be remembered for four more decades.”
The KGB Sky Show on September 5, will begin a month-long Classic Rock celebration that as the “Greatest Month of Rock-and-Roll in San Diego History!” Every weekday, KGB will be giving away concert tickets including: ZZ Top - September 13; The Who - September 14; The KAABOO Music Experience - September 18-20; Def Leppard with Styx and Tesla – September 22; Foo Fighters - September 24; Loverboy - September 27; AC/DC - September 28; and Van Halen - September 30.
