For tickets to the Concert in the Quarry, go online at

What do the words "rock" and "quarry" have in common?

A lot more than many may think.

Tickets are on sale for the fourth annual Concert in the Quarry on May 2, which features musicians from Styx, Night Ranger and Damn Yankees, as well as a performance by "American Idol" competitor Bo Bice.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $25 for students. Proceeds benefit the South Forsyth High School band program and Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes, a nonprofit care agency for abused and abandoned children.

South Forsyth band parent Glenn Kruse said students and parents are "very excited to have such a great variety of popular musicians perform."

Tommy Shaw from the rock band Styx -- known for such songs as "Mr. Roboto," "Come Sail Away" and "Lady" -- will perform at the quarry, as will Jack Blades from fellow '80s rockers Night Ranger, whose hits include "Sister Christian."

Blades and Shaw joined together in the early '90s to form the group Damn Yankees, which penned the power ballad, "High Enough."

Alabama native Bo Bice became famous following his appearance on Fox's televised talent contest, "American Idol," in 2005.

South Forsyth's wind ensemble will start the show about 7:30 p.m.

In addition to music, the night also features food and fireworks.

South Forsyth culinary arts students plan to cater at the concert, which will be held 300 feet below ground level at 3561 Peachtree Parkway.
