FM99 is excited to be bring our Lunatic Luau back to Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach for the 13th year! We have an awesome band line-up and the opportunity for a local band to rock it with the big guys in our FM99 Battle of the Bands.
A little Lunatic Luau History…
The inaugural Lunatic Luau was held on September 14, 1997 at the GTE Virginia Beach Amphitheater. It was 9 bands for 9 bucks and drew 18,000 FM99 listeners! The show was headlined by Faith No More and also included Seven Mary Three, The Nixons, Corrosion of Conformity, Our Lady Peace, The Hunger, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, and Drain sth. The amphitheater was only in its second season in 1997.
Lunatic Luau 2 was held on September 19, 1998 at the GTE Virginia Beach Amphitheater and was headline by FM99’s own band, Tommy & the Rumblers. They performed a number of their popular bits as well as cover songs. Other bands on the bill included Stabbing Westward, Sevendust, Brother Cane, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack (who made their second Luau appearance), Big Wreck, Finger Eleven (whose debut album was released just days before the Luau), The Mayfield Four, and Second Coming.
