Jelly Roll was in Bangor on Saturday night as part of the "Backroad Baptism 2023" tour. He performed alongside Elle King and Struggle Jennings. During the show, he made waves by catching a joint thrown by a fan and then proceeded to smoke it right there on the Maine Savings Amphitheater stage.

The Queen City of the East is known for its quaint allure and captivating landmarks, clearly holding a special place in Jelly Roll's heart during the tour stop. Bangor has its checklist of must-dos, including devouring a succulent lobster roll, marveling at the iconic Paul Bunyan statue, and, of course, paying homage to the master of horror himself, Stephen King, by visiting his iconic home.

Bunnie XO, no stranger to sharing her experiences with her nearly 2 million TikTok followers, immortalized her visit to Stephen King's enigmatic house. In the video, she playfully said, "If I’m ever single, this is how I’m going to design the gates to my house." A nod to King's distinctive taste in architecture and the allure of his creatively eerie universe.

Stephen King, a native of Bangor, drew inspiration from his home state for countless spine-tingling tales. His residence, a towering red house with charming white trim, stands as a testament to his legacy. The property is adorned with an iron fence that boasts intricate designs of spiders, bat-winged creatures, and other spooky sights. A living embodiment of the author's fantastical world, inviting fans from across the globe to stand before its gates and capture memories that mirror the pages of King's novels.

Though the King family has since moved to their secondary home in Florida, the allure of the Bangor residence endures.

Not one to miss out on local flavors, Bunnie XO also documented her visit to McLaughlin's Lobsters, Seafood & Takeout, diving into the city’s culinary specialties.

Moreover, just last week, we explored bakeries that were an impeccable match for Jelly Roll and Bunnie XO's preferences. Given their obvious affection for the area, it's only a matter of time before their return becomes a reality.
