Rocklahoma Goes Bionic

02:01 PM Thursday 2/25/10 | |

ZZ Top, Godsmack, Buckcherry and Tesla are just some of the bands appearing at this year’s Rocklahoma, scheduled for Memorial Weekend in Pryor, Okla., as organizers revamp the annual event to include a broader mix of classic, current and up-and-coming acts.

Along with the aforementioned bands, other groups appearing at the 3-day festival include Cinderella, Chevelle, Stone Sour, Theory Of A Deadman, Saliva, Saving Abel, Adelitas, Aranda and Burn Halo with more to be announced.

“As life-long residents of ‘Baja, Oklahoma,’ Dusty, Frank and I are looking forward to making the northward trek to Pryor in May,” ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons said. “The idea of sharing the stage with so many great, cutting-edge bands out there today is most appealing. It’s like rock ‘n’ roll summer camp; does that make us campers or counselors?”

Members of the corporate side of the event also had a few things to say about this year’s event.

“Where else can the ultimate rock fan see this many artists for under $100?” Rocklahoma president Mark Nuessle said. “And for our VIPs to be able to eat and drink for free, at their leisure, as part of the inclusive VIP experience? These are elements that really make Rocklahoma a one-of-a-kind rock experience.”

Scheduled for May 28-30, three-day passes start at $95 and go on sale Feb. 27 through the Rocklahoma Web site, along with VIP packages, options include seat upgrades and camping add-ons. Just click here for more info.

    I agree with you all that the lineup is ridiculous but I also know that the owners of this "Roclahoma" have been losing tons of cash. They are nice guys with deep pockets but if it kept going down the same road, this year may never have happened. I know AEG wasn't the answer but??? Look back to the first year, attendance was over 30k, 2 years ago it was cut in half and last year, was below 9k. They needed to make the move to a different time of year as they did but really needing someone like Eddie Trunk to lead the way as far as who and when... Come on... Anthrax headliner and Stryper??? They should have been on the bill but not headling. I know they could never get the likes of Metallica or Maiden as they don't need to do little festivals but do need some direction on the line up for sure. Just my opinion...

    Correction:  if you go to the partners link on Rocklahoma's site, you can get to AEG that way.  I would encourage everyone who feels the way we do on this to write them & let them know your thoughts on this.

    Here's a typical example of corporate America getting involved & screwing up a good thing.  Not for the bands' sakes, but I hope attendance is way down to show them that we don't WANT them involved!  ZZ is one of those bands who unfortunately (& it pains me to say it) well past their prime.  Cinderella & Tesla are great & some of the others like Buckcherry & Theory are cool, but Godsmack & all these alternative rock bands suck!  This is supposed to be for 80s rock fans like it's been from the start.  I even looked for a link on the official site so I could send in some threads like this one online & show them the majority's reaction to their changes, but of course there's nowhere to do so.  If anyone knows how we can contact AEG, let me know.

    I'm glad I didn't renew at the time.  I planned on waiting for a lineup before making any decisions mainly because of rumors and especially after hearing that AEG was going to be involved.  No surprise they would help ruin it by turning it into a typical crap fest like so many others.  I'm actually going to Melodic Rock Fest in a couple months.  Check out that lineup guys...it's a good one.  Also, M3 looks good and south texas rock fest is supposed to continue to be all '80s.  There's still hope for the true rockers out there!

    Well said Metal warrior, this festival just went up in smoke. Why not just have The Balck Eye Peas there?

    No Mark, what made Rocklahoma one of a kind was the bands that were there the first 3 years before all of you decided to let AEG come in and help ruin this festival.  It should not even be called Rocklahoma anymore.  ZZ Top, Cinderella, and Tesla...that's all you have for good bands on the main stage.  That doesn't seem like a mix...it is a complete overhaul and now it is just like every other crap fest.  R.I.P. Rocklahoma (2007-2009)
