Get ready to see George Lynch back with Don Dokken. Apparently the two are once again reconciling for a summer tour. Who else is rumored on the bill? None other than Warrant (with Jani Lane, of course) and Cinderella.
Can you say Rocklahoma?
Let's break this down.
Of the three, I'm most excited to see Warrant. I've already seen Cinderella live, but I've never been to a Lane fronted Warrant concert.
That said, I've never seen George Lynch perform live either. For many, Lynch makes Dokken. While I'm not the biggest Dokken fan on the planet, I do like some of the songs and must admit that the band gave one hell of a performance at Rocklahoma 2007.
I saw Cinderella when they opened for Poison a couple summers back. While the band was good, Tom Keifer's voice wasn't as strong as I'd hoped. I'm guessing the entire band will be in top form for this summer's package tour.
Here's the question: if Dokken, Cinderella and Warrant are touring this summer, who is left to support Poison?
My guess is that Poison will tour, but they won't play Rocklahoma 2008. I think they will headline a shed tour with White Lion and Trixter...and maybe even Vince Neil. Poison were smart last year to take Vains of Jenna on the road. To that end, I think they will add another young band to their summer jaunt. Either Dirty Penny or Lynam would be great.
