Now we can officially start talking about the giant new glam fest in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma! Rock N America
is set for July 23-25 at the Zoo Amphitheater. Bands confirmed so far include the Scorpions, RATT, Twisted Sister, Vince Neil, Warrant, Great White, Dokken, Sebastian Bach, Faster Pussycat, Winger, Toxin, Firehouse, Bulletboys, Bang Tango, Enuff Z'Nuff and L.A. Guns (Tracii's version). Cinderella is playing too - they already confirmed on their own website so I'm not sure why the fest doesn't have them listed yet. More bands will be added. The bands not officially mentioned or self-confirmed are pretty great, by the way. This is a great glam fest!
My main concern is the heat. I thought the best thing the Rocklahoma owners could ever do was move the event to May. Not that Rock N America and Rocklahoma have the same promoters - they don't - but still. The heat is going to be an issue.
Tickets for Rock N America go on sale April 10th. I dunno if I can swing another festival...I've already got a handful on my docket, but we'll see.
