Dokken was just added to the Thursday night Rocklahoma line-up (this is not yet announced by festival management, but the band has added the date to their Myspace calendar). Color me unsurprised. I called this one as soon as Sebastian Bach was added. Remember, Poison, Bach and Dokken are touring together this summer. It is much easier to keep bands on the same routing - so it was just a matter of time before we got the Dokken announcement. The kicker here is that Thursday is probably the best day of the festival - and it is only open to those with V.I.P. tickets! If I was jaded, I would say putting all the Glam bands on the preview party day is a way to make money and sell more tickets. Since I'm not jaded, I'll just smile and be grateful for Dokken. If the Rocklahoma promoters really want to make people happy (and sell some tickets) they'll just add Poison instead of Bret Michaels solo. Remember the golden rule of business: you have to spend money to make money.Here are some clips of Dokken performing at Rocklahoma 2007. Ah, the memories.
Here's "In My Dreams."
Here's "Alone Again."
