Today heavy metal fans across the nation heard the news they've been hoping for from "House of Hair" nationally syndicated radio host and TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider.
"It is my distinct pleasure to announce that TWISTED SISTER will once again be involved with a show that will go down in history. On July 15th, TWISTED has just been confirmed as the headliner for the Rocklahoma festival," Snider said during his weekly radio show. "Rocklahoma will go down as one of the most momentous concerts of all time."
TWISTED SISTER's Rocklahoma appearance is the band's only announced North American show for 2007.
TWISTED SISTER, full on with costume, make-up and all five original members — Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Mark "The Animal" Mendoza, Eddie "Fingers" Ojedaand AJ Pero — along with 22 bands from that era will appear at Rocklahoma, the largest rock festival of its kind to ever be organized. To date, Rocklahoma's three-day line-up includes:
Friday, July 13:
Saturday, July 14:
Sunday, July 15:
Snider added: "When I tell you that this will be the most incredible lineup ever, you have to believe me. Check it out. Over three days, you'll have the chance to see so many bands that your head might explode — like that dude in the JUDAS PRIEST  video for 'You've Got Another Thing Comin.']"
Although rumors have been circulating about whether or not band members might retire TWISTED SISTER, Snider recently put an end to those rumors by discussing Rocklahoma.
"On the TWISTED SISTER retirement front: Ain't happening," he said. "We're strappin' on the spandex one more time."
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, OK just off highway 69.
