Power 98.3 FM is set to lead a hip hop takeover on the second night of Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare at WestWorld Of Scottsdale on September 20. Power 98.3's Saturday night Haunted Hip Hop Concert powered by Squirt and Monster Energy will feature performances by Sage The Gemini, Tinashe, Iamsu!, G-Eazy, and RiFF RAFF.

Tickets for this night of carnage and concert at the ultimate Halloween horror event are on sale now at for only $25, with VIP packages starting at $35.

Sage The Gemini's self-described "crossover of R&B and Bay Area party hip hop" is epitomized by his hit singles "Gas Pedal" and "Red Nose" (certified Platinum and Gold respectively). Tinashe — whose debut album, Aquarius, is due in October on RCA records — delivers a distinct and dynamic vision of R&B punctuated by hip-hop attitude, pop flavor, rock swagger, and electronica spark. Known both for his grounded storytelling and command of West Coast party music's slapping palette, Iamsu! is a thoughtful introvert and high-energy leader all in one. Oakland rapper G-Eazy's highly anticipated second full-length album, These Things Happen, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year, and topped the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B and Top Rap Albums Charts. Shamelessly eccentric Houston-born rapper and pop culture icon RiFF RAFF brings the tongue-twisting lyrics from his debut NEON iCON to life with his wild stage antics.

As previously announced, Rob Zombie will perform at both opening nights of the Great American Nightmare's two-city engagement: in Scottsdale, Arizona (with guests Powerman 5000) on September 19, and in Villa Park, Illinois on September 26. Tickets for opening night in each city include the Rob Zombie concert and are available starting at only $45. A limited number of VIP packages are also available for purchase at All VIP packages include a commemorative t-shirt and quicker access to the haunted attractions than general admission. Some packages also include a designated viewing area for the concert.

The Great American Nightmare in Scottsdale will feature will feature three attractions based on Zombie's own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out — first seen at the inaugural Great American Nightmare in Pomona, California in 2013 — and the all-new Captain Spaulding's Clown School In 3D and The Devil's Rejects.

The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare will include the Bloody Boulevard with freak shows, musical entertainment — including Street Drum Corps' Halloween stage show Blood Drums — roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

"Great American Nightmare may be the best example yet of the upsizing of haunted houses over the last decade…"
—Steven Kurutz, The New York Times, October 24, 2013

About Rob Zombie

As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million. Rob Zombie and his band of maniacs—guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, and drummer Ginger Fish—launch their latest U.S. tour in early September. Rob's theatrical live performances feature elaborate, multi-media production, insane guitar riffs and vicious beats. In 2013, Rob released his fifth solo studio album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, marking the first release on his new label Zodiac Swan through T-Boy Records/UMe. On April 26, 2013—the same week his album was released—Zombie premiered his sixth motion picture, The Lords of Salem, which he wrote, directed and produced in tandem with the producers of the Paranormal Activity franchise, with Anchor Bay Films. Rob is currently working on his sixth solo studio album and an excitingly brutal new film called 31.
