Tyketto, Crazy Lixx Join Already Massive Rock Gone Wild Lineup

ALGONA, IOWA (March 10, 2009) - Surrounded by the rough and tumble streets of New York City and the beauties of Scandinavia, two bands formed to rock your ass off in Middle America. Hard rockers Tyketto and youngsters Crazy Lixx will both join the already massive Rock Gone Wild 2009 lineup. Tickets in three pricing levels are available now by visiting Rock Gone Wild is slated for August 20-23, 2009 in Algona, Iowa.


Tyketto formed at the end of the 1980s in New York City. Never forgotten by a legion of rabid fans, Tyketto are known for great AOR melodies with catchy guitar hooks. The band has five albums to their credit and reformed just a handful of years ago to appease fans. Members have recently hinted at the possibility of new music.

Don't know Crazy Lixx? You will. The Scandinavian Glam band formed in 2002 in Malmö, Sweden. They are heavily influenced by 80s hard rock - and for this they make no apologies!

I've noticed Pollstar also lists Joan Jett as playing RGW. It says she's on the same day as Lita Ford. A mini-Runaways reunion perhaps?

Who are they kidding. Not one true headliner has been far just a bunch of bands I could see at Six Flags or some small Indian casino.
Total joke.

Crazy Lixx will be playing at the H.E.A.T. Festival in Ludwigsburg/Germany in September. Can't wait to see them! I've seen Tyketto in January. What an incredible night. :)

So far this year looks like all glam rock festivals share their bands - let's see if Crazy Lixx and Tyketto will pop up at Rocklahoma too.
