Eighties famed rock band TWISTED SISTER will be headlining Sunday, July12 at Rocklahoma.
TWISTED SISTER is celebrating the twenty fifth anniversary of “Stay Hungry”, which includes rock anthems “We’re Not Going to Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”.
Dee Snider of TWISTED SISTER and host of the “House of Hair” had this to say about Rocklahoma. “In every great religion or society there are pilgrimages to be made and homage to be paid. The Islamic have Mecca, the Jews and the Muslims have the Wailing Wall, the Catholics have St. Peter’s Basilica, the Irish have the Blarney Stone and so on and so on. The ultimate pilgrimage for the old school, metal community is Rocklahoma. Each and every one of us must make the trip and pay homage to the Gods of Metal. Wait a minute….that’s me! And that’s why I’ve just got to go back to Rocklahoma this year…’cause there’s nothing quite like being paid homage to! It’s better than sex!”
In addition to TWISTED SISTER and the already announced KIX and KEEL, Catch the Fever Music Festivals is proud to announce GREAT WHITE and NELSON have been added to the lineup. Director of Operations Dave Giencke announced, “This year’s lineup is shaping up again to be a great festival showcasing Eighties rock music!”

Here comes another Swedish band ready to hit the shores of the USA. Hope, which hails from Goteberg and is comprised of Henkan Thomsen on bass & lead vocals, Mats Johanson on guitar, and drummer Imre Daun. The guys in Hope all have almost 30 years of playing, studio, and touring with various performers behind them but their album “All of My Days” is their band debut. Hope will definitely draw comparisons to Canadian Bryan Adams and Norweigan legends the Stage Dolls. Thomsen’s vocals sound alot like both Adams and Torstein Flakne and like I said before the bands sound follows suit. Hope should by no means be considered metal and I would be even hard pressed to call them hard rock, but regardless the guys, along with the help of respected musician Jim Jidhead ( Alien) know how to write good catchy mid tempo songs that do rock and and a sound that just flows effortlessly. If you are a fan of Bryan Adams or Stage Dolls, Hope will definitely have the songs to tickle your ears.
