Fuel’s sound is a melodic brand of hard rock rooted in eloquent songwriting and heavy guitars. The band’s 1998 album “Sunburn” not only went Platinum, but it also yielded enduring anthems such as “Shimmer” and “Bittersweet.” Its 2001 follow-up, “Something Like Human,” earned a double-platinum certification and elevated them to arenas.

The lead single “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” would reach No. 1 for 13 weeks and would even become the No. 6 Alternative Rock song of the past 25 years, according to Billboard’s Alternative Chart 25th Anniversary: Top 100 Songs, making it “one of the Top Ten most-listened to alternative rock songs for the past 30 years.” Their music appeared everywhere from Prison Break, Daredevil, and Scream 3 to WWE Pay-Per-View events. 2003’s “Natural Selection” bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 and garnered a GRAMMY Award nomination in the category of “Best Engineered Album—Non-Classical.” For more information on the band, visit: fuel-official.com.

Dorothy will also take the Grandstand stage Friday night! The band’s musical palette seems to encompass each of the musician’s influences, as well as many of the essential sounds of rock music’s history—from soulful swampy blues to hard rock—in a way that makes the case for rock and roll itself.

While the band’s first, irreverently named album, “ROCKISDEAD,” was made on a combination of whiskey and heartbreak—inspiring Rolling Stone to name them one of rock’s most exciting new acts, and Jay-Z to sign them to his label Roc Nation—“Gifts” was built on recovery, health, and holiness, in a way that reverses the clichéd ‘good girl gone bad’ narrative. With “Gifts From The Holy Ghost,” Dorothy identifies her purpose as an artist. She conquers darkness with light, numbness with feeling, disharmony with unity—all while delivering one of the most fun rock & roll records. For more information, visit: dorothyonfire.com.
