Three Days Grace headlining ‘Big Growl’ at Four Winds Field

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Bear’s ‘Big Growl’ concert is returning to Four Winds Field on July 14. Three Days Grace will headline the concert with special guests Skillet, and Sick Puppies.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

“After the last few years, we deserve this and we are so excited to be able to bring the legendary ‘Big Growl’ back to Michiana,” said The Bear Program Director Darcy Murphy said. “Let’s have some fun!”

Real Rock 103.9 The Bear hosted the first Big Growl in 2011 at St. Patrick's County Park, then moved to the St. Joseph County Fairgrounds the following year.

“With the Big Growl growing into such a popular event it was only natural for us to partner with 103.9 The Bear and bring the Big Growl to Four Winds Field,” South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart said. “It obviously took some patience, but I know that Three Days Grace, Skillet, and Sick Puppies will be terrific. It will be another great night in Downtown South Bend.”

Tickets will start at $45 for seating bowl options. Suite tickets will be available for $50, while Field

General Admission stands at $55. Field Preferred General Admission and Field Premium Pit passes cost $99 and $129, respectively.

Tickets can be purchased beginning April 15 by calling 574-235-9988, going to, or visiting the Four Winds Field Box Office.

The Ontario, Canada quartet—Matt Walst [lead vocals], Barry Stock [lead guitar], Brad Walst [bass], and Neil Sanderson [drums, percussion, keyboards, programming]—continue to blaze that trail on their sixth full-length album, the aptly titled Outsider [RCA Records].
