PRYOR, OK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Ticket sales around the world are making the Rocklahoma music festival one of the most successful events of Oklahoma’s Centennial Celebration as ‘80’s rock fans will converge on the state from locations as far away as Japan, Australia and South Africa.
"The eyes of the world are on Rocklahoma," enthused Mark Nuessle, General Manager of Catch the Fever Music Festivals. "Rocklahoma has struck a chord that has reverberated around the globe. We have sold tickets to ‘80’s rock fans in all 50 states and across six continents."
Twenty-three bands are scheduled to play during the three-day festival, making Rocklahoma the largest ‘80’s rock festival of its kind to be organized. Two weeks ago, when Twisted Sister was announced as Rocklahoma’s headliner, word spread like wildfire via satellite radio and the World Wide Web. Rocklahoma’s draw is most likely a combination of the bands’ talents and the sheer number of bands playing at the event, said Dave Giencke, Director of Operations for Catch the Fever Music Festivals.
"The worldwide ticket sales we are seeing with Rocklahoma show the power these bands have held on to over all these years. One of these bands would sell-out an arena in the ‘80’s. They left their fans wanting more. Now those fans are lining up to be a part of history when, for the first time, all these bands are coming together to play in one setting," Giencke said.
With VH-1 Classic Host, Eddie Trunk, as Master of Ceremonies, Rocklahoma’s three-day line-up is:
* Friday July 13 – Poison, Ratt, Quiet Riot, Slaughter, Y & T and White Lion.
* Saturday July 14 – Vince Neil, Dokken, Winger, Skid Row, Warrant, Firehouse, Enuff Z Nuff, Faster Pussycat, Bulletboys and Bang Tango.
* Sunday July 15 – Twisted Sister, W.A.S.P., Jackyl, Great White, LA Guns, Steelheart, Britny Fox.
Rocklahoma, an official Oklahoma Centennial event presented by Rock Fever and Miller Lite, will be held July 13-15, 2007 at the Catch the Fever Festival Grounds four miles north of Pryor, Oklahoma.
VIP Tickets for $275 are good for all three days and include reserved seating plus all the food and beer you can eat and drink!
