HALFORD Rumored For MONSTERS OF ROCK, THE WILDHEARTS Slam Bill As "Jurassic Junction"

HALFORD are strongly rumored to have been added to the bill of the upcoming Monsters of Rock festival tour in the UK, which will also feature ALICE COOPER and THUNDER. Meanwhile, the previously announced THE WILDHEARTS have now pulled off the tour (as reported here yesterday), and have issued an official statement explaining their decision.

"We were booked as special guests on the tour," said THE WILDHEARTS frontman Ginger. "We moved around tour dates and single releases to coincide with the tour. Then yesterday we found out that THUNDER are the new special guests and we are supposed to play underneath them. Which is just never going to happen, y'know?

"It went from being something of a cool curiosity gig to a nostalgia trip, complete with ROB HALFORD being added to the bill. I apologize to anyone that has shelled out money for this trip down Jurassic Junction, but it's in the band's best interests that we pull out before they add QUIREBOYS and DUMPY'S RUSTY NUTS."

The dates for the Monsters Of Rock UK tour, featuring ALICE COOPER, THUNDER and (possibly) HALFORD, are as follows:
