“It’s been 33 years since I last played The Roxy, for the record release party of Guitars, Cadillacs. Thanks to SiriusXM and Goldenvoice, I’m taking a ‘Stagecoach ride’ up the ‘Tom Joad Road’ to The Sunset Strip for a special appearance back at The Roxy, to kick off the weekend of Stagecoach and in celebration of Ch. 349 – Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat’s first year anniversary,” states Dwight Yoakam. “I’m really excited about performing at The Roxy again as well as broadcasting live from the festival as part of the Bakersfield Beat Channel’s all day takeover from the Palomino Stage at Stagecoach. From The Roxy to the Palomino Stage, the weekend is certainly going to serve as a personal reference to, and reminder of, many of the moments, places and milestones in my early career. Again I want to thank Stacy Vee and Goldenvoice for letting us throw a ‘Bakersfield Beat’ party at Stagecoach, and express my lasting gratitude to Scott Greenstein, Steve Blatter, Joey Black and everyone at SiriusXM for collaborating with me to allow the channel a great first year on the air.”
