W.A.S.P. Out, Replacement Needed


W.A.S.P. Cancels Appearance. Replacement band to be announced within hours.

W.A.S.P. has cancelled its previously announced appearance at the Rocklahoma festival, set to take place July 12-15, at the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds.

W.A.S.P. recently called off its U.S. tour "due to its North American label losing its distribution," according to a posting on the band's web site. The tour will be rescheduled to a later undisclosed date.

There are not a lot of bands left as viable replacements at this time. My two predictions are Lillian Axe or Vains of Jenna. VOJ is a bit dicey because they are a new band and VH1 Classic is taping the show for a nostalgia Pay-Per-View package (U.K. glam rockers Gypsy Pistoleros were moved from their planned performance with L.A. Guns because of the media agreement).

Stand by for news!

Screw Blackie. What a dumb move. VOJ would be OK. Tesla would be even better, but obviously not viable.

What about KIX? They have shows planned later in the year and they could leave their current bands for a few days to play something like this.

The Scorpions are in Finland the night before. They are free on the 15th. Seems like a perfect fit!

Kix - YEAH !!!!

Wow - that's almost as good. I missed Queensryche in Oz as I was in the US, it will be good to see them. I wonder how much of 'Mindcrime' they will play ? :P

Kix would have been great tho, I love those guys.
