Say it isn’t so…….
Bravewords.com has posted the following:
Sadly, in another example of “eyes too big for one’s stomach”, the organizers of Rock Gone Wild – the four-day outdoor event scheduled in Northwood, Iowa, set to host some of the ’80s biggest acts, including the likes TWISTED SISTER and GEORGE THOROGOOD as well as overseas metal stalwarts PRIMAL FEAR and SAXON – has cancelled, just two weeks from its scheduled August 20th debut.
The net has been abuzz with rumors since the weekend and the festival’s main page switched to discount pricing options last week (never a good sign). However, writing in the on-going thread on the page Natalie Wild (one of the organizers and listed as administrator of the fest’s forum) says, “Official RGW press release will be posted today (August 6th). Please understand that we have to wait for our legal department to advise how to move forward. Someone is going to pay for this, and it won’t be the fans or me, not two weeks out. Not after every penny of my life savings has gone into this, NOT when everything has been paid for. I don’t think anyone can feel what I’m feeling right now.”
More info as it becomes available.
