Sounds like fun :-)

actually this is wrong. they still say that the headliner for friday is tba and the headliner and 3rd from the top on sunday are tba. i'm very disapointed. i thought they'd really let us know who the big guns are going to be. i've heard rumors but i'm underwhelmed at the moment. this is a great way to piss off fans.

I was tuned into XM The Boneyard when they announced this, and I think this is a great lineup, but would really like to know who those other headliners are...

Yeah, don, this kind of backs what I have been saying - they kept pushing back the announcement because they don't have any decent headliners. Last year they said something like 'when I was young, it was cool to like Poison AND Iron Maiden', so you can bet they've tried to get Maiden, Priest, etc, but obviously they don't have the money to do so.

I wish Stryper was on there.

Does anyone know what the Enuff Z'Nuff lineup is for this show?
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos
wow. this is totally awsome.

are there gonna be more bands that will show or is this final?
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChey
I am pretty impressed. This years lineup is better than last year. There are quite a few TBA's listed, and I betting Motley Crue, will be one of them.

Its not in the press release, but Eddie mentioned Exteme as a coheadliner with Triumph on Friday.

Works for me! =)

If they add the Crue to Sunday this will be one killer show. Even if they don't, it is pretty good.

thanks for the great update allyson =)

"Paul Shortino of Quiet Riot." You have to be kidding me. Not that Shortino is playing, but that he identifies himself as "of Quiet Riot." What a joke.
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJT
I agree re: Shortino. And, Ron Keel is on a side stage?
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristian Graus
What about KROKUS? I thought they were to headline on Friday July 11?
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBillie
No, they pulled out. As did Vixen. How bad are things when you can't hold on to a band like Vixen ?
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristian Graus
its not even Vixen anymore. the only original member is the guitarist and they are way to different for me.
March 4, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChey
Not shedding any tears over Vixen. Disappointed that Krokus wont be there.
March 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRob Rockitt
I never cared about Vixen, that's kind of my point. It's not like they were likely to get better offers.

Yeah, Krokus not being there is a major disappointment.
March 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristian Graus
LOVE VAIN!!!..They should have been more popular in the states then they were..They were bigger in Japan and England..Glad that people will get to see how awesome of a band that they are.
March 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJoe
Yeah, this lineup has plenty in it for hardcore fans, fans who say 'yeah, vain, that album is classic'. I doubt Rolling Stone will do a story about Vain appearing tho, or that the average person in the street remembers them. That is the issue.
