Just received this from the House of Hair (with Dee Snider):
The HOH has learned that Rock Gone Wild, the four-day rock festival in Iowa, which was supposed to take place August 20-23 at the Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood, has encountered some bumps along their rock 'n' roll road.
Late Wednesday evening, the HOH received an email from Donnie Frizzell, managing partner of Rock Gone Wild, which said,"I . . . was informed on August 5, 2009, by email from legal counsel representing Diamond Jo Casino, that 'the event cannot take place anywhere on the licensed premises.' "
Just last month, the festival organizers had moved the Rock Gone Wild festival from Freedom Park in Algona to The Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood.
"The size of the festival necessitated the change," Donnie said at the time. "Thus, the move to Diamond Jo's will allow us to best serve the fans of the festival who have already bought tickets, all of the great bands we've booked, our employees and those who are still making plans to attend." According to our inside intel, ticket sales were very good.
In an exclusive interview, Frizzell informed the HOH late Thursday night that Rock Gone Wild will issue a press release tomorrow, Friday, August 7, at 4pm CST detailing the fate of the show. At this time, everything else you've heard is only speculation. Please follow us on Twitter http://twitter.com/houseofhair to get the news first tomorrow afternoon. The HOH will also post the press release on our website HouseofHaironline.com after 4pm CST tomorrow.
Bring Back Glam! will also post any official release as soon as it is received.
