There is a Rock Fest in Cadott, WI that would do this. Not sure if they do anymore but it was always something like:

 

Saturday lineup

Eddie Money

System of a Down

ELO

Shania Twain

 

examples of course but yeah, get with a common theme

oh... and I forgot about Cinderella. Not sure who is playing which day. I hope they at least group the bands together in the right way. I sure hope Cinderella doesn't go on before a band like Theory Of A Deadman or Godsmack.

Figures this festival would start going towards the "all genres for all people" vein... I mean, realistically, how many years in a row are the Hair Metal Nation going to spend $$ to come and see the same bands?

 

Just sayin'. <_<

True to some extent... But how many people are gonna travel for this line-up when you can see many of these bands within an hour or two drive from where you are? Not sure how many younger concert goers have the cash and will be able to travel... I assume the crowd will be MUCH younger this year.

 

Looks like this festival may be catering t people who live a state or two away. The last two Rocklahoma shows had people from all over the world. Not so sure with the mixed bag of bands on the bill people will be so willing to do this. I'm gonna be at Rocklahoma this year... I know my friends (one from Arizona & one from Virginia) who went the first 3 years aren't going this year. Both of them will be going to the M3 show instead.

 

I suppose Sam and I may be the only ones from HH to be at Rocklahoma this year. I've seen Godsmack on many occasions and they are a very good live band. Shannon Larkin alone is worth seeing Godsmack. Though I think the Adelitas Way release is greatly overrated I guess they might be cool to check out.

 

 

With any luck maybe they will add Cinder Road and Charm City Devils to the bill. I can hope anyway... :headbanger:

Yeah I'm not going this year..very disappointed in the new format. Damn I'm still pissed I didn't go last year cuz I was going to the scamfest known as Rock Gone Wild!! There is a Midwest Rockfest in Witchita, Ks in July w/ Y&T, TWISTED SISTER, KIX & WINGER (so far) that is much cheaper & much closer that I plan on checking out...

So they've changed the format then! Apart from 'that little old band form Texas' & Tesla the line-up sucks!

 

 

Hey CINDERELLA doesn't suck...hopefully just an oversite on your part ;) Would love to see ZZ TOP though..never seen 'em live :(

Yes , I hated to see Rocklahoma go this route but I guess they wanted to try a "modern" approach. I'll still be there with a bunch of Retrospect acts but it won't have the same impact as the pure 80s fest we've had in the past. There are some possibilities floating around now about the largest 80s Rock fest ever seen on the planet in 2011. Only plans right now but I'll keep everyone updated as news comes in. Most likely will be held in Southern Cal and initial ideas are talkin about 100 bands over 5 days.

Even further from Texas, great! :(

 

Even though I wasn't going this year anyway, I am still heartbroken about ROK. End of an era I guess, I don't think they will never get it back. I also think they will lose their shirts on this one, unless some bigger names are added. I don't see anyone but locals traveling to see this one.

 

Also, I think ROK will miss the "relatively" well behaved, mostly adult 80s rock crowd/campers. They might not be prepared for the crowd they are now seeking to attract. JMO

I assume Sam (Retrospect) and I will be the only ones there this year from the HH board. I'm pretty sure this is safe to assume. I think Sam is leaving today. My flight leaves Thursday morning. I hope Sam remembers to pick me up in Tulsa at the airport (LOL).

 

Retrospect has a good line-up again this year. I guess I'll only wander over to the main stage for Godsmack on Friday... Cinderella on Saturday.... and Tesla on Sunday.

 

If anyone else is going let me know... :popcorn:

I really thought I was gonna be able to pull off DRF... but now it doesn't look like I will be able to. To expensive for a place to stay and all.

 

Unless I can hitch a ride with Wildstreet...LOL

I'd love to man but with the twins being so young I'd say this year is screwed :(

Got back from Rocklahoma at about 5 A.M. this morning.

 

I've gotta say... I had a blast. I actually didn't see many bands on the main stage. I did run into Shannon (drummer for Godsmack, ex-Wrathchild and UKJ) and was able to watch Godsmack from the stage. I also saw Cinderella, ZZ Top, and Tesla on the main stage. Much to my suprise, I would have to say ZZ Top was the best band on the main stage.

 

I spent most of the time in the Retrospect tent. The bands on this stage were awesome. The highlight of the whole festival was the finale when Wildstreet was joined on stage by members of The Glitterboys, Black Tora, Firstryche, and the Gypsy Pisteleros.

 

I not only got to hear all the new Wildstreet song performed live, but I actually got to hear the final mix for the new release. I've gotta say... This release is gonna be great. The songs are so much better and the band has started to form its own identity. The songs are powerful anthems that should grow on anyone who likes "our" style rock. Should be done by the 4th of July.

I should have a few pictures up soon if anyone is interested. Didn't bother with many main stage bands. I did get a few Godsmack from the stage... thanks to Shannon letting me up there. Most others are from the Retrospect stage.

    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
