From Rocklahoma. Insert a giant *sigh* here.
PRYOR, OK— Irish Rock Band Thin Lizzy, known for hits “Jailbreak” and “The Boys Are Back In Town” cancelled their entire 2009 tour including Rocklahoma.
Thin Lizzy guitarist and main stay, Scott Gorham had this to say, “It’s been a very tough time of late for myself and the band, firstly with drummer Tommy Aldridge’s injury and now the subsequent decision for John and the rest of the group to go their separate ways. I can only apologize to everyone who has supported us over the years, but we will be back up to full speed soon!”
General Manager of Catch the Fever Music Festival’s Mark Nuessle reiterated "We respect the decisions of Thin Lizzy and will surely miss them this year. We will announce a replacement in the upcoming days. Thank you for your understanding.
So, who will be the replacement? Rocklahoma officials have literally six business days to get it done. This means they won't get a big ticket bump from a late add - so don't expect a huge band.
