Bang Your Head with Quiet Riot at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®

On Monday, Aug. 5 Quiet Riot takes the Buffalo Chip crowd back to the glory days of heavy metal

Quiet Riot Joins Lineup of Sturgis Concerts at the Buffalo Chip Aug. 5, 2024

The Best Party Anywhere® is calling in a “Metal Health” day on Monday, Aug. 5 with ‘80s heavy metal gods Quiet Riot performing on the legendary Wolfman Jack main stage prior to a performance from Aaron Lewis. The Sturgis Rally is getting a whole lot louder with the addition of Quiet Riot to an already stacked 2024 Buffalo Chip lineup that includes Jelly Roll, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, Theory of a Deadman, Aaron Lewis, Bad Wolves, Hinder and more. Passes are available now at

Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop charts, Los Angeles quartet Quiet Riot became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album “Metal Health”. Their follow-up album, “Condition Critical,” went double platinum, and the band continued to record and tour throughout their 30+ year history. 

“We are less than 100 days away from the start of the rally, and the energy is already incredibly high,” said Sturgis Buffalo Chip CEO Rod Woodruff. “Quiet Riot is the perfect addition to a day jam packed with great events like the 2024 Legends Ride®.”

The Quiet Riot and Aaron Lewis concerts will cap off the Buffalo Chip’s Legends Ride Day. The first 50 who signed up to participate in the Legends Ride will receive free access to watch both performances. Learn more about the Buffalo Chip Legends Ride charity event at

In addition to world-class entertainment, Buffalo Chip guests can experience thrilling events, powerful freedom celebrations, worthwhile charity rides and events, top-tier bike shows, heart-pounding stunts, white-knuckle racing events and more during the 2024 event. The festival runs Aug. 2-11, 2024.
