The post-grunge rock band Saving Abel, best known for their 2008 hit 'Addicted' will play a special Autism benefit show at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds.

You may remember seeing Saving Abel at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo with Trapt, Saliva, Alien Ant Farm, Crazy Town, 12 Stones and Tantric, on the Make America Rock Again tour in 2016. They will be back in Southwest Michigan on Saturday, June 12 for the 2nd Annual Autism Rock Show.

Saving Abel knocked it out of the park the first time they stepped up to the plate. Their debut single "Addicted" climbed to  #2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart sin 2008 and propelled their self-titled debut record to gold status, selling half a million copies. This success earned the band a slot on tour with Nickelback, Hinder and Papa Roach in 2009.

Like many bands these days, Saving Abel has been itching to hit the road again and play in front of live audiences. They begin touring that the end of May and have June shows booked and a solid July, including two Michigan shows: the 16th at the Rebel Road Bike Rally in Muskegon and the 17th at the Ionia County Fair. You can see them sooner and closer to home at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds.

Saving Abel is the headliner, with support from Michigan bands Rebel Slave, SXX and Handsome Pete. The show is a benefit for JDL's Angels for Autism Foundation, an organization that raises money for Marshall Public Schools Cognitive Impairment Programs. Their goal is to raise money and awareness to help give the children a brighter future. So help out the kids and wave the flag for live rock and roll as we get back to in-person concerts!
