bret.jpg "PRYOR, OKLAHOMA—Poison front man Bret Michaels and his solo band will headline the opening night of Rocklahoma Thursday, July 10, 2008.

Michaels, whose music has sold more than 25 million records worldwide in his 22 year career with his band Poison, has also achieved success with his top rated show on VH1 Rock of Love with Bret Michaels.

'There is no denying that Bret Michaels is one of Rock’s top front men and who better than to help kick off Rocklahoma,' proclaimed Mark Nuessle, General Manager of the Catch The Fever Music Festivals.

Rocklahoma 2007 was the largest Rock Festival of its type featuring bands from the eighties. Attendance for the upcoming Rocklahoma has already sold tickets from all fifty states and four out of seven continents.

Located four miles north of Pryor, OK, off Highway 69, the Catch the Fever facilities include over 6,200 assigned and numbered seats, as well as general admission on the lawn for over 50,000 people. The grounds also feature over 4,000 campsites, on-site parking, bathroom facilities, a convenience store, and overnight security provided by Mayes County Sheriff’s Department. Rocklahoma also has a Picture Alley that allows anyone in attendance to approach the stage during any performance and take photographs of a favorite artist at close range.

There are a limited amount of V.I.P. tickets available to Rocklahoma, which includes free beer and food for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There is a special pre-party on Thursday July 10th for all three day and V.I.P. ticket holders at no extra cost. Through February 29th, prices for V.I.P. tickets are $325 and three day general admission tickets for just $110. They can be purchased by calling toll free 866-310-2288 or by going online at RockFeverFest.com"

Great closer for Thursday, which I thought was going to be basically a waste like last year. Seems they may be having a good lineup on Thursday now.

Can anyone honestly say that they want to see Bret Michaels perform solo instead of seeing Poison?

<<<'There is no denying that Bret Michaels is one of Rock’s top front men and who better than to help kick off Rocklahoma,'>>>

Seriously? Don't get me wrong, I like Poison, but there's no way that Bret is one of the Top frontmen in Rock.

No, but since Poison won't play at Rocklahoma I take him with no complaints. I've never seen Poison and I'm so happy I get to see him at least. Much more than I thought I would get yesterday! =)
