There are 234 days until Rocklahoma 2008. While ticket prices have already gone up, and the front VIP section is nearly sold-out...without a single band announcement! I just called Rock Fever, and the receptionist told me those bands will be announced the beginning of next month. My assumption is that the announcement will be much like last year: a few trickles here and there, right up until July 2008.
That's fine with me: the announcements give me something to look forward to and to write about.
At any rate, here are my official predications for Rocklahoma 2008. We'll see how many I get correct.
Iron Maiden (headliner)
Def Leppard (headliner)
Pretty Boy Floyd (a reunited, original line-up)
Vains of Jenna
Some of these are givens (Steelheart, Gypsy Pistoleros), others are out of left field (Saigon Kick, Sweet FA, Iron Maiden).
Would you pay $325 for this line-up? Remember, more than 30 bands perform over the four day festival. While organizers hope to bring all new bands for 2008, I will guarantee a handful of repeats right here, right now. In my own world, I'd love to see Aerosmith and Motley Crue (with Tommy Lee on drums), but I'd say both these very expensive bands are just wishful thinking.
So, what are your Rocklahoma 2008 predictions?
