On Saturday, May 26, Allstar Weekend, a young American pop band, will take the stage at the Great Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $27.
Allstar Weekend gained its popularity from the Disney Channel television network when they competed on Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing.” The group came in second place but signed a contract with Hollywood Records a few months later. Their debut single, “A Different Side of Me,” peaked at the top of Radio Disney singles chart and jumpstarted their career. When they released their debut album in 2010, “Suddenly Yours,” they emerged as one of the most promising young bands around. Their performances tell a story and maintain an element of fun that entertains music lovers of all ages.
