Today brought the long awaited first band package for next years Rock Am Ring festival and it was, in many ways, a bit like Christmas.. (Or in my case probably better than Christmas, but that’s another story) Both as regards the waiting, the anticipation, the revelations and the subsequent tears of joy.. Or, umm, just joy.
Next year will be the 25th anniversary of Rock Am Ring and we had already been promised something pretty special.. And we weren’t to be too disappointed, really.. First up, the headliners:
And… I fuckin’ told you!
Looks like we’re in for one hell of a light show and fireworks three nights in a row on Center Stage.. And as if the confirmation of KISS wasn’t enough to make a classic rock geek sob with joy.. How’s about..
For those of us who are still angst ridden teenager’s by heart, there’s also everybody’s favorite straight edge, vegan, PETA supporters:
Or Welsh emo/metal core sensation
Bullet For My Valentine
.. And that’s just the beginning of things. There’s also Gogol Bordello, As I Lay Dying, Danish overnight international sensation, Volbeat, and about 70 more bands to come..
So, umm.. Tina? Others? HEY HO, LET’S GO??
