Another Garbage lineup, won't be going again. Hopefully they'll be doing the Rock in America Fest in Oklahoma City. Rocklahoma has turned into SUCKFEST!

Exactly Vick, I'll save my money for M3. Rocklahoma died after 2009. RIP

Absolutely rockssssssssssss... YES What a line up

you would have to think that Poison gets added to the lineup when they finally make the announcement of the Crue/Poison/NY Dolls tour.
February 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterwill
Not bad at all. I would pay to go see Whitesnake and Skillet as I have never seen them live. BLS and Crue were real good at Ozzfest thius past year too. Skip Staind though.

I'm not gonne lie.... I am pretty pumped about Staind and Black Label.
February 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertomahawk
OK... Motley Crue & Whitesnake. The rest? Who cares?

I think this is the last year you will have any glam on the bill. With the fact that there are 3 bands that are "glam era" & the rest is heavier, the majority of the crowd is going to be for the more modern bands. I know that I wouldn't pay to go, even if I didn't have to travel. I think it is going to be hard to convince "glam bands" to come after the reception, I believe, they will receive this year.

M3 Rock Fest blows Rocklahoma away.

Motley Crue and Whitesnake. That's the headliners M3 needs. Not just Whitesale...er...um...I mean...uh...well, you know.

If they add Poison to Rocklahoma, as I, along with Will, speculate they might, I'll go.

And if they add the Dolls, all the merrier. I love the irony of this lineup as it's 2 icons plus the icon they ripped off (Crue for the Dolls' looks and Poison for their licks, though, granted, The Pistols stole 'em first).

And if I go, I'll go in style with the Rockstar Package. Just look at the leather glove treatment you get with that deal!

Now all I need is the off duty Vegas Stripper to come along and get in a catfight with Vince's Blondtourage (love what you named 'em, Al!).

Interestingly, if you subtract Crue and 'Snake from Rocklahoma, you are basically getting Rock-On-The-Range give or take a few Daughtry On Steroids Sound-a-likes With Hair And Louder, Cooler Looking Guitars or Emo Metal (Hey, there's another Metal Category for ya, Jeff, "Emo Metal", which is what 70% of the crap you could classify as "Nu Metal" is).

The exception, of course, being Bad City. Damn, I want to see them.

Hopefully, I can scrape the bread together for all of these fests, if they hone up the line-ups a little more.

Maybe I can time my trip to Memphis, Cleveland and L.A. to coincide with all of the fests this Summer plus Sweden Rocks. I would love to catch Priest and Crash Diet.

Rock'n'Frickin'Roll! Yowwwww!!!!

Replace Staind with Poison and Rocklahoma will be worth going to. I dont want to go to a depressing show. More fun rock, like M3! Stop infiltrating Rocklahoma with horrible new rock. Instead advertise more!!
February 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLegend
Cinderella is also touring this summer. I am surprised they aren't in the lineup
February 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJN
Poison will be there. Seether's Facebook page states Seether is playing Sunday with Poison, Motley Crue and Saving Abel.
February 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCADDI
I have been to all previous Rocklahomas and this is my favorite line up since year one. I would lose a couple and add a couple but all in all this lineup is GREAT!!!!
February 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterokstpat
Alias.

Probably the only band that i would make the hour drive to see.
February 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNermal
If Poison's comin' and I got the bread, I'll be there!

Why didn't M3 keep it to 1 day and pull Crue and Poison in and kill off all the also rans?

I'm going to assume it was a timing issue more than anything.

I know what some people are gonna say... that M3 duzn't have the budget. Well, either they're overpayin' Whitesnake or stealin' the money.

Otherwise, how the h*ll did they afford Scorpions, Cinderella, Vince, Kix, etc., etc...last year?!
