Wow, nice professional press release. Not only does it contain proofreading mistakes, but it places blame on the casino in writing. Libel suit anyone?

I fear this is going to get ugly...

There's some email correspondance surfacing over at in which Natalie claims that the fest had Iron Maiden to an investor she requested 100k from. I think there's a pretty long backstory to this thing. I doubt it was a scam from the beginning but it seemed to keep going down hill while everyone prentended like it was going to work out in the end. Just hoping I get my $765 back so I can buy a Rocklahoma 2010 VIP seat pronto.

Well, no big surprise here. Now it's just time for the lawsuits!

4 platinum seats and a RV pass.

also SD received this offer to become an investor for 100K!!!
What a big f'n MESS (to say the least). Listening to see if Eddie Trunk will comment on any of this. I do feel bad for those ppl who spent money and awaited this festival.

Forget concerts in the summer heat in the middle of nowhere. Get ShipRocked! What could possibly go wrong on a luxury cruise ship?
