From Rocklahoma officials:

PRYOR, OK— Jackyl has been signed on to bring their “Wild and Untamed” brand of Rock to Pryor, Oklahoma Saturday Night at Rocklahoma.

Director of Operations Dave Giencke said, “After Thin Lizzy’s cancellation, we wanted to bring in a band that has consistently been one of the fan favorites!” “Jackyl’s energy and stage presence is like no other band who has ever performed at Rocklahoma and they promise to step up even more!”

Front Man Jessie James Dupree added, “I was equally disappointed that Thin Lizzy cancelled their tour. I am a huge fan of theirs and wanted to make it down to Rocklahoma see them perform. Since I was going to be there anyway and there’s an open slot, it made sense to have Jackyl perform.” “Jackyl Stock 09, let’s get it on!”

Jackyl who had huge rock radio hits like "Down On Me," "When Will It Rain," "I Stand Alone" and "The Lumberjack,"

The lineup on each of the four days is as follows:

Thursday: Anthrax, Saxon, Overkill, Anvil, Metal Church and Leatherwolf.

Friday: RATT, Night Ranger, Warrant, Danger Danger, Helix and Hurricane Alice

Saturday: Stryper, Jackyl, KIX, KEEL, Lizzy Borden and Gypsy Pistoleros

Sunday: Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Great White, Nelson, Bonfire and Vixen

Jackyl does NOT equal Thin Lizzy!

I'm a bigger fan of Thin Lizzy but Jackyl is a fun & high energy band and the crowd ate them up last year, they will do just fine! Looking at the demographic that Rocklahoma covers, I'm sure nobody's upset about Jackyl being there, again the entire crowd was on their feet when they performed last year!! Nuff said...
